Obama says: come to the USA, go on welfare

Do you want to come to the USA because it is the land of opportunity? Obama would prefer if you came here for the welfare. The official US government website, has a page devoted to explaining the welfare benefits that immigrants or naturalized citizens can receive:

On the right hand side above, you can see help for becoming a naturalized citizen.  In the center of the page is a list of welfare programs that you might be able to qualify for.  Don't speak English?  No problem.  Just click on their link to get a full list of welfare programs written in Spanish.

If you have a hard time reading the screenshot above, the text in the center column, with links, reads as follows:
Depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs. Government assistance programs can be critically important to the well-being of some immigrants and their families. Frequently, however, there is a lack of information about how to access such benefits. Benefit programs can be complicated and you may be given misleading information about how they operate.
The links below will lead you to official government websites describing a range of assistance programs.
Another page on the website advertises "free public education" for immigrants.

Most American citizens have ancestors who were immigrants.  They, however, came here (1) legally and (2) not because the US advertised generous welfare.
