Skip to comments.USDA Flyer: We Don't Check Immigration Status for Food Stamps
Posted on 04/26/2013 6:36:42 PM PDT by markomalley
A government watchdog group has discovered that the United States government is advising Spanish-speaking residents that they need not declare their immigration status to qualify for food stamps.
Judicial Watch obtained the Spanish-language flyers through a Freedom of Information Act request and announced on Thursday that 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.
A statement on the flyeremphasized in bold and underlinedreads, You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said of this discovery, the "USDA is actively working with the Mexican government to promote food stamps for illegal aliens." This implication, he asserted, "should have a direct impact on the fate of the immigration bill now being debated in Congress."

The Obama admin doesn’t check status for those that desire to kill Americans either.
about frigging time they do but saying that they don’t even want illegals to be checked for voting and how a liberal can look at themselves knowing this crap goes on is stunning.
They just discovered this? LOL. Some watchdog.
This is a contributing factor towards spiraling up grocery prices. I am seeing more and more people who can’t speak English using EBT cards at my grocery store, Winco.
And you know who are the biggest lobbyists for this? General Mills and other big food companies.
many people are unaware that food stamps (ebt cards) many times get turned into cash for ... other items (ie: drugs)
In my best Henny Youngman voice ... Can we “BUY A VOTE” here... please
This is not new, many of us have said for years illegals are on social programs in large numbers. Wonder if those posters that have argued that illegals can’t get food stamps and other assistance here for years will post in this thread...
Bullshit. I want free meals for my Australian Healer.
They’re about to take care of this problem by making them all citizens. See, then they can say there are no illegals getting welfare.
nobama and his thugs are full tilt on to signing up as many people as possible for food stamps. They have really gone on a tear to get this done.
They need a nation on food stamps to further their goal of turning the USA into a turd-world hell hole with nobama as dick-tator for life.
It’s happening. Lord quickly come.
What, this is news? Thirty seconds at a welfare office would yield the same information. Translators are standing by, but only white and black people get fingerprinted, brown people might feel intimated by the process and are thus exempt.
I am sorry, but you are absolutely correct.
Well, hell, I’ve never been to a welfare office, kingu.
Exactly what they will do after given amnesty under that bill Rubio promises will not allow them to get food stamps.
Fast forward to 2016 Rubio/Ryan :”They lied to us” again .
The suckers here will be outraged that Rubio Ryan were lied to by Dems, ‘How could this happen?”
Wyan the Wabbit gets lied to again, those mean wascally Democwats.
“And you know who are the biggest lobbyists for this? General Mills and other big food companies.”
Pepsi/Coke and candy/junk foods are biggies, too. That’s why they can buy junkfood with food stamps. None of them ‘care’ about poor people.
Follow the money.
We call it our American government but is it really? It seems that one party—the Democrats are running everything to their benefit whether it is the immigration policy, welfare policy, environmental policy it ALL ABOUT THE DEMOCRATS! What have the Republican wusses been doing all these years? Why are all of the bureaucracies controlled by the Democrats?
I won’t vote for Rubio if he’s dog catcher...
Simple. Democrat appointees often convert to career civil service -- so they can't be replaced by Republican administrations -- thereby remaining in the bureaucracy indefinitely. Republican appointees can't wait to exit the government, so they can make big money in the private sector.
The civil servants below the appointive level are instinctively Democrats -- because the Democrat party is the party of big government. What's good for the government is good for them.
As a consequence, most government bureaucracies are overwhelmingly Democratic.
