Obama Admin To Mexico: Illegal Immigrants Can Have Food Stamps

mexico_foodstamps-550x366

What kind of public assistance do you think we’d get in Mexico?

With food stamp spending in the United States skyrocketing since the beginning of the recession, the Department of Agriculture is paying to promote food stamp usage to illegal immigrants for the sake of their American children, according to documents obtained by a government watchdog.

“The promotion of the food stamp program, now known as “SNAP” (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), includes a Spanish-language flyer provided to the Mexican Embassy by the USDA with a statement advising Mexicans in the U.S. that they do not need to declare their immigration status in order to receive financial assistance,” Judicial Watch announced today. “Emphasized in bold and underlined, the statement reads, ‘You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.’”

    Why stop with Mexico? I mean it’s unfair to offer food stamps to only Mexicans and their children. What about the Swedes or the Armenians?? Let’s just do this for everybody till the money runs out and no American is left with anything….Then we can all bow down and worship and be beholden to the mighty Ozdumbo and hope he’ll throw us a crust of bread….And oh by the way since Mexicans now get food stamps on the backs of the taxpayers why work and pay taxes at all??? Who is John Galt?

    something needs to bo done,we the people must stand up and stop this, we have enough American Citizens in need.we have too do whatever it takes including closing our borders ourselves. Mr Obama and company need too be ousted and imprisoned for crimes against these United States.

    • Shane

      This is insane. We give welfare to illegal aliens and Islamic Jihadist immigrants. We must stop all Muslim immigration into the USA and kill the Mass Amnesty bill in the Senate – http://www.numbersusa.com/actionbuffet

      • eddyjames

        Deport them all! Every Muslim that has come here in the last 20 years as well as all the illegal aliens in the country.

      • James Fontana

        What does this have to do with Muslims? I believe the article was about Mexicans. How ever I agree Muslims and Mexicans should be deported. If they try to come back shoot them ( with a a crossbow) This giving away food stamps will only encourage more to come here. Obutthead is cutting benefits to Americans and giving away the store to illegals.

        • SOCIALISM-MUSTGO!

          why a crossbow? because it is more barbaric ? I propose only allowing shooting them at night with tracers and allowing free meals during the day , so they can run faster, night scopes and thermal imaging allowed but no spotlights except for confirming kills ,overhead flares acceptable. Bounty, not to exceed 25$.

  • VirgoVince

    Isn’t there some way that the entire ‘illegal alien’ program can be DEFUNDED, except for deportation???? Don’t forget ALL non-American invaders that don’t belong here!!!!
    NOT one cent wasted on any of them and SEAL THE BORDERS!!!!
    Target practice, folks, shoot on sight, open season, no limit, leave the carcasses for the vultures!!!!

  • gparra9

    Where in the hell are our so called elected Rep., why haven’t they done “SOMETHING” to stop this from happening ????!!!! Why do we as Americans keep electing these Worthless, scumbag politicians……………..GET A GRIP AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ruth

    Yeah, give all these ILLEGAL DUMBOCRAPS free food stamps, welfare benefits, and all other benefits they haven’t worked a day FOR in this country! The American people would rather do without for their families just to give and support all these ILLEGAL DUMBOCRAPS!

      You just cannot buy friends ,, For proof , we have had Foreign aid Since WW2 , now we give it to 152 countries , How many are friends ??? Then a bigger waste is the UN ,, The y are always on the side of Muslims or Communists,, And we have a creature like that in white House!!! freedom is not Free!!!

  • bvette

    the food stamp program is administered by the U.S.department of agriculture. they proudly report that they distribute free meals and food stamps to over 46 million people on an annual basis. meanwhile, the national park service ,run by the U.S. department of the interior. asks us ,”please do not feed the animals.” there stated reason for this policy being that.. “the animals will growv dependent on the handouts, and then they will never learn to take care of themselves”.

        I liked Jan Browers too. Don’t if I can say it as will as she but here goes.
        The Phoenix Suns owner was telling Jan it was ok to let illegal immigrants in to the country. So her response to him was, ” so you mr owner it would be ok for a couple dozen people crashed your gates and got in free. Not only that but, once their in you feed for free and to top that off a couple of these gate crashers get hurt on your property and you have to provide them with free health care. Is that a great plan mr suns owner. ” Mr Suns owner, “NO” now you know how the rest of us feel. Point made. Jan is awesome.

      Absolutely TRUE!!!

    They shut down the White House tours, make flying as difficult as possible, cut border security and do anything they can to make our lives miserable………yet they continue to spend OUR money for illegals.
    Bet if the illegals got hungry, cold, etc from NOT have OUR benefits/money……….they’d go home!

    The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations since the beginning of time, has been a little over 200 years. They always progress through the following sequence:

    >From bondage to spiritual faith;

    >From spiritual faith to great courage;

    >From courage to liberty;

    >From liberty to abundance;

    >From abundance to complacency;

    >From complacency to apathy;

    >From apathy to dependence;

    >From dependence back into bondage.”

  • spoony

    No use crying to our reps in congress; most have been compromised and turned to the dark side. There are only a few exceptions; so, it’s going to fall on our shoulders to take up the burden and get the job done. It won’t be easy but neither was it easy for our forefathers who wanted freedom from King George in England. We will have to fight for it or we will become slaves to tyranny! Better stop talking about it and start preparing to free our country.

    Our National Security has already been cut to the bone, do you think this latest food stamp policy is wise? Mexico is a sponge sucking us dry. Just look around, we are broke, and there is no security at our borders. Illegals are flooding across our southern borders without a shot being fired. Send in the Marines, for God’s Sakes! It seems our elected officials in Washington have become the greatest threat to our freedom, our health and the American way of life. This Obama administration and his executive order policies have divided the nation and is now causing the entire country to revolt, and when that day comes, it will truly be a day of infamy. We need to vote them all out of office before it is to late. Obama has cut international security to the bone, our Ambassadors are being murdered and our embassies and cities are being attacked. Boston is just another arrow from the talons of more terroristic disasters to come, if we do not secure our borders and stabilize our economy. No jobs or wages to feed the family is the number one cause for unrest and violence in America today-not guns. Also, do you believe other countries, as in the Middle East want us meddling in their affairs, bringing war and mayhem to their lands instead of good will? Do you think it is right to use our tax dollars to promote the UN and its New World Order? Do you think it is right for our Govt. to use our tax dollars to build a mosque at ground zero and have Obama tell American citizens they must support Gay Marriage, Gun Control and Abortion? Well! Do you? A Patriot!

  • TexRancher

    More vote buying by our first subversive president. He continues to incite ILLEGAL INVADERS to stay and invites more to come!
    So much for border security! No wonder he doesn’t admit that he’s using ILLEGALS against AMERICAN CITIZENS! It’s all about his power and staying in office!
    Same for Napolitano who now says that DHS doesn’t have the money to deport these criminals. Bet they’d have a lot more if she stopped buying massive amounts of ammunition and guns that they don’t use against our enemies!

    Anybody can get food stamps. The streets around me, here in South LA, are littered with addicts, on food stamps. They trade them for drugs/alcohol,at the various Chinese immigrant owned corner stores, around here. The whole system is corrupt.

  • Nellie CA

    F.I.N.D a government program for low income food is buying food from Mexico and China for the food banks. I volunteered for a Mission and we received 75 case of tuna from F.I N.D. The tuna was the guts from the fish but canned and sold to our government as tuna. We had to dump the whole 75 cases. What a waste of money! The buy a lot of food from China and Mexico! I will not donate to them.

    Do you people believe everything you are spoon fed by these Tea Bagger types?

    Citizenship Requirements – We need tougher enforcements on illegal immigrants using SNAP.

    Undocumented immigrants are ineligible for SNAP. Additionally, there is already a strict waiting period for documented immigrants. Documented adult immigrants (those with a greencard) are subject to a five-year waiting period before they are eligible for SNAP.

    Noncitizens make up a very small portion of SNAP participants – only 4% of participants are noncitizens (documented immigrants or refugees)

    This should prove to the liberal idiots that B. H. Obama hates America and is out to destroy it. He can’t even spell illegal or pronounce it. Look at the idiots he has appointed to key positions. Clinton, Kerry, Holder, Napolitano, just to name a few. Impeachment is long overdue.

    Oh yeah come on Obama has lots of money to give to the poor, undereducated masses. The tax payers of America work 2 jobs no vacations just so you can come over here and get in the gravy line. Well me for one is fed up with Obama’s generosity with our money, I notice that he gave a mere 5% of his money to help with the debt. I say he should apologize to the American taxpayer
    and get the hail out of dodge and don’t let the door open to him again. Impeach him now or we will lose the America that we hold so dear. meh

    If Barack Obama really wants better relations with Mexico stop operation fast and furious so drug gangs have less access to guns. Better yet stop fighting the war on drugs over seas and alienating Latin America and pay attention in the United States. Allow for fairer trade with Mexico and more action water shortages in the south west. The United states should not give food stamps to illegal immigrants that only makes it worse.

    I am disabled and I get $16 in food stamps! I get $1095 a month from Social Security after working a lifetime putting money into SS. Try making ends meet on that. Now, the ILLEGALS get food stamps for BREAKING THE LAW! I am an American Citizen and I am treated with less regard than an ILLEGAL ALIEN. This is wrong.

    • Irishmist1000

      I only get $1101 from SS. I have to take insulin 100 units per day equals $450 a month and an Insulin before each meal and that costs $150 per bottle equaling another $450 per month. Plus I have at least another $250 in other medications. I do get some help from some of the drug manufacturers, but with the extremely high cost of food and gas I must make a decision to ear or medicate. I have applied for assistance from the government to help with the cost of medications. Guess what, I am not given any assistance. I guess that it is because I am not illegal, black or muslim.

  • Brian Rothman

    Funny how the advertisements are for said/ disability and food stamps programs

  • DON THE BRITTON

    Why do we make them come to the US for food stamps. Why can’t we open up a Mexican branch so all of them can participate in the food stamp program. An added benefit, it would stop a lot of the border crossings.

    You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”.

    Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California …or Texas ….or… Arizona ….or Illinois or?

    Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $30.00 per hr.

    Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table”.

    NOW, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION!!! Especially the Mindless Liberals and Progressives!

    Joe Legal: $30.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1200.00 per week, or $62,400.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $43,680.00 .

    Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $800.0.00 per month, or $9,600.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $34,080.00 .
    Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00 .

    Joe Legal makes too much money to be eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $250.00 per week for food or $13,000 per year. Joe Legal now has $21,080.00
    Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare which of course Joe Legal’s Taxes pay for. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

    Joe Legal pays a mortgage and Property Taxes of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $6,680 .00 .
    Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month Federal Rent Subsidy. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00 .

    Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for car insurance. Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance. Joe Legal now has $4,280.00.
    Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has $31,200.00 .

    Joe Legal has to make his $4,280.00 or $356.66 per month stretch to pay Natural Gas and electric utilities, gasoline, or any other expenses that might arise etc. which he can’t do!
    Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month..

    Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays and his wife took a part time job after work to make ends meet.
    Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family andfriends.

    Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same elementary school. Joe Legal pays for his children’s lunches, while Jose Illegal’s children get a free, government sponsored lunch.

    Jose Illegal’s children have a free after school ESL program.
    Joe Legal’s children go home to an empty house.

    Now, when they reach college age, Joe Legal’s kids may not get into a State School and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or other tuition help, even though Joe Legal has been paying for State Schools through Federal and State Income Taxes and his Property taxes, while Jose Illegal’s kids “go to the head of the class” because they are a minority.

    Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe Legal paid for them through his Property Taxes while Jose Illegal payed absolutely Nothing!

For you and other immigrants, dependants have to live with you and have a social security number. The IRS will give them a substitute Social Security Number to these special non citizens.
    Google Dependant Mexicans on U-Tube, one TV news report, billions of your tax payments being sent to non existant children every year. Hey you are already breaking the law so what if you lie about your dependants. This just may be a socialist program to pay them to file taxes so that they qualify for Amnesty?
