    USDA partnering with Mexico to boost food stamp participation

    Forign nationals should not be getting foodstamps regardless if they are here legally or illegally.Apparently Bush must have been tossing Mexico's salad before he was trying to push the Bush/Kennedy/McCain amnesty plan.





    USDA partnering with Mexico to boost food stamp rolls | The Daily Caller
    The Mexican government has been working with the United States Department of Agriculture to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.
    USDA has an agreement with Mexico to promote American food assistance programs, including food stamps, among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.
    “USDA and the government of Mexico have entered into a partnership to help educate eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States about available nutrition assistance,” the USDA explains in a brief paragraph on their “Reaching Low-Income Hispanics With Nutrition Assistance” web page. “Mexico will help disseminate this information through its embassy and network of approximately 50 consular offices.”
    The partnership — which was signed by former USDA Secretary Ann M. Veneman and Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Ernesto Derbez Bautista in 2004 — sees to it that the Mexican Embassy and Mexican consulates in America provide USDA nutrition assistance program information to Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals working in America and migrant communities in America. The information is specifically focused on eligibility criteria and access.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I see an opportunity here....no food stamps, but a credit card type arrangement that is issued only at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City...fingerprints and DNA taken, photo and thumb prints will be on the credit card....and it can only be renewed/refilled at the same embassy, from funds supplied by their American employers. We will let them out of the USA to go get their cards once a quarter, but they can't get back into the USA unless they have legal green cards and their DNA and fingerprints haven't been connected to any crimes.
    One more requirement....their American Employers have to pay all the expenses incurred by the U.S. government related to this program.

    Politicians must be really bored if they have nothing better to do than feed foreigners.

    Why did we invade Iraq again? We would have been better off taking over Mexico.

    Please explain to me why a legal resident and taxpayer should not be eligible for foodstamps.

    Making sure people can eat is pretty much the first thing I would expect a government to do. Because not a lot matters if you can't get that part down.

    Making sure people can eat is the first thing you should expect your PARENTS to do.

    If you can't feed'em, don't breed'em.

    Pretty sure that if you make enough money to pay federal income taxes, you make too much money to get foodstamps....

    Everyone is a taxpayer. Specifying federal income taxes leaves you in a situation where the only people collecting food stamps are the people who make enough money not to need them. I'm not sure that's what you were going for.

    Some of us think children should not go hungry regardless of any mistakes their parents may have made.

    I think you shouldn't assume all Mexican immigrants are legal.

    Some of us think parents should be held responsible for their actions, not anyone else.

    I said nothing of that nature. Read more carefully.

    No, you.

    That means other adults should have to take care of them because...?
