Report: Refugee children get food stamps at higher rate than U.S.-born kids

- Children of refugees in the United States are receiving federal benefits at a lower rate than their native-born counterparts, according to a new report.

Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney said on Fox and Friends that it's a question of fairness when it comes to the report by the Migration Policy Institute.

"The bottom line is that a greater proportion of refugee children get benefits from the federal government than local, native-born poor kids," he explained. 

Additionally, Varney said that six percent of refugee families receive cash welfare for their children, compared to four percent of U.S. families.
