    Re: Watchdog Report: USDA Promoting Food Stamp Benefits To Illegal Immigrants

    I think tereun's answer is part of it, but not the overriding reason. That I think is, as quickly as possible, to make the situation impossible to go any other way than to grant amnesty. Politicians on both sides of the aisle have salivated over amnesty for some time now and they see it within their grasp.

    Damn their hides.

    The big question is "Why?"

    My personal theory is they have multiple reasons for doing so.

    Corporatism -

    1. The US has a consumer based economy. The higher the demand for goods and services the stronger our economy becomes. One way to achieve this is population growth. Naturally the more people you have the stronger the demand will be or their products. If growth slowed enough our economy would probably tank. We would be in a situation like Japan.

    2. The influx of cheap illegal labor keeps labor costs stifled.

    3. Poor unskilled persons who make low wages will spend a much higher percentage of their earnings for goods and services so it is nearly a 100% return into the economy. I also believe this is one reason they started the income tax credit for low income. It pumps our economy, they generally spend most if not all of it.

    4. The wealthy here buy huge amounts of US treasury bonds so debt incurred by the government for programs the illegals use, it plays right into their hands. It becomes a lucrative cycle for them.

    Higher product demand <> cheaper labor <> Buying US debt = Higher Profit

    Think of it as trickle up economics.

    Electorate -

    Particularly the democrats, they view the children of illegal families as a growing means of support since most vote democrat. Naturally the more illegals you allow to enter the more children you will have securing future party votes.

    Government spending -

    The stronger, higher rate of money exchange means more tax revenue. This gives them a seemingly broader base of revenue to use. What politician ever goes against more revenue to spend?

    Or maybe it's because children deserve to eat even when their parents have committed the horrible sin of wanting a better life for them.

    If people want a better life for themselves, why is the responsibility of someone else to provide it

    Why is anything anybody's responsibility? Because we make it that way. Feel free to move to some other country that tells children to just go get ****ed.

    No Sir, your dodging. The benefits are for US Citizens, children born in the good ol' USofA, your partisanship must be affecting your ability to read the article.

    Not sure why a story from Jan 2012 is breaking news, maybe this forum could have a re-hash news area for such non-breakers.

    Citizens. Child citizens. And it's not a dodge. I told you why. Because society took on that responsibility. Enjoy your new third world home where this terrible responsibility is not asked of you. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

    Children have parents who have a responsibility to take care of them. It is not my responsibility to feed and cloth the kids that live down the street from me. it's the responsibility of the people who conceived them. It's called "personal responsibility". Something you obviously know nothing about.

    The problem is illegal aliens are receiving benefits in this country and then sending the money back to Mexico. See the "child tax credit" fraud being committed on a massive scale. Now we have illegals committing fraud with Food Stamps.
