This is one of those WTF moments. Our government is actively promoting the use of food stamps by illegal aliens even though the food stamp law itself makes this illegal. This is the same gov that constantly wants to raise taxes and says it needs more of OUR money to function properly.
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — A government watchdog agency is reporting that the Department of Agriculture is promoting food stamp benefits to illegal immigrants.
Documents obtained by Judicial Watchdog show a Spanish-language Agriculture Department flyer given to the Mexican Embassy in Washington. The flyer informs Mexicans living in the U.S. illegally about the fact that they don’t have to declare their immigration status in order to receive benefits for children born in the U.S. under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
“You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children,” the statement on the flyer reads, according to Judicial Watchdog. The flyer was distributed in March 2009.
