    Watchdog Report: USDA Promoting Food Stamp Benefits To Illegal Immigrants

    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.

    And, this was from CBSDC and Judicial Watchdog? Can't say those are Right Wing Sources.....huh?

    Judicial Watchdog reported: “In an email to Borjon Lopez-Coterilla and Jose Vincente of the Mexican Embassy, dated January 26, 2012, Yibo Wood of the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) sympathized with the plight of illegal aliens applying for food stamps, saying, ‘FNS understands that mixed status households may be particularly vulnerable. Many of these households contain a non-citizen parent and a citizen child.’”

    “The revelation that the USDA is actively working with the Mexican government to promote food stamps for illegal aliens should have a direct impact on the fate of the immigration bill now being debated in Congress,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “These disclosures further confirm the fact that the Obama administration cannot be trusted to protect our borders or enforce our immigration laws. And the coordination with a foreign government to attack the policies of an American state is contemptible.”.....snip~

    Quite a statement from Judicial Watch that CBS let get out there.....huh?

    I just don't understand it. We have got to figure out, as a people, what the end game is. Why is our government doing this?? It's not partisan, by the way. I think both sides are guilty of the same thing: basically inviting illegals over the southern border and helping them stay here.

    The big question is "Why?"

    And, if the endgame has something to do with our economy, getting or staying healthy, perhaps then that's the reason...I don't know. But I do know we'd better figure it out. No joke.

    Sometimes I think that, when a President gets into office, he's suddenly privy to secrets that would blow our minds. Background "plots" that are meant to save us or destroy us . . . I don't know which.

    Yep it was......which was another I slammed him on. Along with the Creation of DHS and the TSA. Look at what they are doing with this immigration reform now. The Gang of 8. All this behind the scenes finagling. This should be a wide open debate. With true intentions of looking for solutions and not playing some compromise game.

    Why is the government making sure children who are eligible for benefits get benefits despite the legal situation of their parents? You're asking that question?

    That is actually really easy to answer. The USDA is concerned with the food industry which involves sales. Opening up food stamps to illegal immigrants will increase food sales and profits for the food industry. Food stamps are actually an important part of the income of every business that deals with food from farming to the end sale. So they are going to push for the expansion of the program. Oh, and congress likes money so they will probably listen despite any of their claims otherwise.

    Ya' know, Tererun? Your explanation makes as much sense as anything I can think of. You may be right.

    Crazy, the more stuff like this I read it might be that if illegal aliens were offered citizenship, they would decline saying that would mean a loss of benefits.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
