Skip to comments.Shocking US government leaflet tells Mexican immigrants they can collect food stamp benefits ...

A Spanish-language leaflet that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has provided to the Mexican Embassy in Washington advises border-crossing Mexicans that they can collect taxpayer-funded food stamp benefits for their children without admitting that they're illegal immigrants.
Underlined and in boldface type, the document tells immigrants who are unlawfully in the United States that, 'You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.'
The USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, is funded in order to prevent hunger by helping poor families maintain a basic level of nutrition for both adults and children.
The Agriculture Department says SNAP benefits are only to be distributed to U.S. citizens and other legal residents. On its website, it acknowledges an education 'partnership' with the Mexican government, but insists that its aim is to help educate only 'eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States' about nutrition benefits for which they might qualify.
That education partnership is carried out through a program called 'Ventanillas de Salud,' meaning 'Windows to Health,' implemented through 50 Mexican consulates in the U.S.
Judicial Watch obtained the Spanish language leaflet through a Freedom of Information Act request. An attached email dates the document to March 2009, just months after President Barack Obama took office.
In an email, a spokesperson for the SNAP program told The Daily Caller, which first reported on the leaflet, that non-citizens who are unlawfully present, are not, nor have they ever been, eligible to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.

'You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children'
Program in all 50 Mexican consulates in the U.S. helps push food stamps
All but five states have an welfare eligibility policy allowed by the federal government that permits the social services people to NOT COUNT THE INCOME OF ILLEGALS when determining if a family is eligible for welfare and food stamps. So, if you have a family of two illegal parents and two anchor-baby kids, the parents incomes are not counted, and they automatically qualify for the highest level benefits. If the family next door is made up of all American citizens, the adults incomes count. So, in all but five states, families with illegals receive more generous benefits than American citizen families. WHAT DOES YOUR STATE DO? WHY ARE WE DELIBERATELY CULTIVATING FOREIGN-BORN PARASITES?

AMNESTY TWO ISSUES NEVER TOUCHED
ACTIVE FR’S IF YOU SEE ANY CREDITABLE REPORTS OF PROBLEMS AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE HAVING WHILE LIVING IN MEXICO PLEASE POST THEM.....
(1) When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss amnesty ? And two other questions US legislators should ask
Here are three questions:that has yet to appear on any US legislator’s questionaire from either chamber
ASK YOUR FEDERAL LEGISLATORS WHY THEY HAVEN’T
!...Should Mexican citizens when in the US be given the same rights American citizens are given while in Mexico? .......There are no American illegals in
Mexico if caught they’re jailed fined and sent back.
2.. The Mexican government through public statements and educational system lays claims to major portions or all to some of our southwestern states as part of the Mexican nation . Are we asking for trouble by granting their illegals an expressed path to our citizenship laying the groundwork for “squatters rights” at some future date ?
3... If it is deemed necessary to supplement the US labor force by allowing itinerant labor should the individual states make the determiniation as to the number should the offer being needed ? And should that offer not be restricted simply to Mexican nationals using up quotas from other central and south American countries ?
What makes it necessary for US to subjugate our sovereignty because of available cheap labor ? While the Godless Demo-Coms socialists encourage population control and abortion . Then complain the US is not reproducing enough citizens to replace its aging retiring workforce. But rely on (as the Romans did) on foreigners (barbarians) .to keep their welfare ponzie schemes supplied with tax money and keep the system working.....
On the Mexican problem
Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.
Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.
Americans cant own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash theyll get unceremoniously sent back or put in jail untill some relative comes up with the fresh. Thats just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea lets give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections
i’m so glad i can work 70-80 hr weeks so i can feed the people of mexico
I saw this exact story 10 years ago. It is so discouraging that nothing every changes.
60 hours. unpaid bills. zero help, aid what have you. Glad i make enough to feed illegals.
Not only that but Eric Holder is now saying it’s a violation of”Illegal Aliens””Civil-Rights”to refuse them entry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hopefully, Judicial Watch will file a lawsuit to stop this, since our legislators are doing nothing.
The spokesperson for SNAP doesn’t get out much.
Why do we(as Americans)have to rely on”Judicial Watch”to protect our interests?That is(surely)the job of The Potus and Congress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
