Cute, but stupid. It's a well-understood psychological phenomena that people presented with a conflicting message or with mixed contexts are less likely to act. So, people seeing a homeless person with a fancy sign are going to be less likely to contribute because their subconsciouses are going to be busy trying to figure out why a homeless person has a fancy sign!

The US government would rather support some piece of shit muslim arab terrorist "refugee" than it's own people.

This is bullshit. Spend the time, effort and money getting these people a job and homes. Helping them be better beggars (and that point is very debatable) is no way to go about it.
