The claim is based on a meme, also false, about refugees in Canada, according to Snopes. That claim, liked by nearly 90,000 on Facebook in just five weeks, says, ""Illegal refugees get $3,874/mo. Under the Federal Assistance Program. Our SS checks are approximately $1,200/mo."
Here's the tweet President Trump just retweeted:
Contrary to the false claim in the tweet, undocumented immigrants are not able to receive any federal government assistance. Many, despite that, pay taxes which amount to billions of dollars a year, but are never able to access those benefits, even years later.
That Trump fan account lists a Patreon account, which allows supporters to donate to their spread of false information.
