Skip to comments.Case Worker: Illegal Aliens Got Food Stamps by the “Vanload”
Posted on 05/01/2013 5:19:32 AM PDT by Liz
TWEET For decades the U.S. government has knowingly given illegal immigrants food stamps, according to a former certification case worker who denounced the costly practice back in the 1980s but was essentially ordered to keep a lid on it.
The retired assistant case manager, Craig McNees, was in charge of vetting food-stamp applicants in north Florida and Indiana in the 80s and says the program was infested with fraud and corruption that was perpetually ignored by management.
Illegals would come in by the vanload and we were told to give them their stuff, McNees said. Management knew very well they were illegal. It was so rampant that some employees would tell their illegal relatives to come get food stamps.
McNees contacted Judicial Watch after reading documents obtained by JW from the US Dept of Agriculture (USDA) detailing how the agency is working with the Mexican government to promote participation by illegal aliens in the U.S. food stamp program. The effort includes a Spanish-language flyer provided to the Mexican Embassy by the USDA ensuring that Mexicans in the U.S. dont need to declare their immigration status to get financial assistance from Uncle Sam.
The documents ignited outrage considering the nations food stamp program has exploded under President Obama, who claims there are too many food insecure households in America. To correct the problem the administration has spent millions on ad campaigns promoting food stamps and has rewarded states with multi-million-dollar bonuses for signing up recipients.
Its been quite effective because American taxpayers spent an astounding $80.4 billion on the program in 2012 and a record number of people46 million and growingget free groceries from Uncle Sam.
The retired case worker who contacted JW says in the three years he worked in a Sarasota food-stamp office, he found more than 500 cases of fraud but management ignored them all instead pushing a yearly quota. They just said that if we dont give out as many as last year, we dont get our money, McNees said. It was crazy, like a three-ring circus; like the inmates were running the asylum.
Decades later it seems little has changed as Obama promotes the program like theres no tomorrow. In fact, last summer a federal audit revealed that many who dont qualify for food stamps receive them under a special broad-based eligibility program that disregards income and asset requirements. That means American taxpayers are getting stuck with a multi-million-dollar tab to feed hundreds of thousands who can well afford to feed themselves.
Adding insult to injury, last spring the USDA Inspector General revealed that many food-stamp recipients use their welfare benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors. Some trade food stamps for reduced amounts of cash, the USDA watchdog told Congress, disclosing that the fraud has cost taxpayers nearly $200 million. None of this surprises McNees, who claims he witnessed so much fraud as a food-stamp case worker that he could write a book.
OBAMA TAKES CARE OF HIS VOTERS These same scammers actually qualify for 100% subsidies under the atrocity known as Obamacare.
...AND THEIR FAMILIES....
... AND THEIR FRIENDS BACK IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES ...
...you really think they WANT to become citizens?
We are implementing the ancient Roman program of bread and circuses. EBT is the bread part and pro sports fill in for circuses(chariot/horse racing, think Ben Hur)
Mexican citizens along the Texas border live off the U.S. taxpayer. It’s their right, doncha know.
Our country is being raped and seems unwilling to say, “no more.”
Obama is purposefully trying to bring down this country so he can remake it into his kingdom.
Deranged vote-crazed politicians are prostrate in obeisance---all puckered up, sucking up to what they see are their potential voters.
This is insanity. The American taxpayer not only has to feed everyone in America, but now has to feed the world, literally. Anyone who is hungry can get food stamps if they find a way to make it into America. Our welfare system is rotten to the core. There is no way to repair it.
REFERENCE The America-hating Tsarnaev family collected bigtime----rode the US gravy train using several identites. The Boston bomber brothers' lavish style could not have been financed merely w/ welfare checks, food stamps, housing subsidies, etc etc etc.
A look at dead bomber Tamerlan's reading list on Amazon shows he researched several books WRT forging new identities (each identity pocketing US govt freebies).
TAMERLAN'S READING LIST--PUT THIS IN YOUR BROWSER
Faked/forged identities is a common practice among "impoverished" latinos on US soil....."the just here for a better life types". The "impoverished" invaders pay $$$ thousands for fake identities. The latino Washington state rapist had some 30 identities. Another latino scammed UI for $3/4 million using fake identities.
NJ BERGEN RECORD CIRCA 2004---Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity (many latinos establish multiple identities in order to ride the US gravy train).
The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses----for any state in the US------ passports and resident alien cards, said NJ state police.
The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot.
The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. After a search, police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.
All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street when sold to "impoverished illegals." Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 phony Social Security cards. ####
The “progressives” are offering us up to BE raped,
and we’re too “civilized” to do anything to them in retaliation.
NY POST EXCERPT April 2013--- Mexican cartels dispatch agents deep inside US - spread into non-border states
CHICAGO (AP) Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the US border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most lucrative narcotics market and maximize profits.
If left unchecked, authorities say, the cartels' move into the American interior could render the syndicates harder than ever to dislodge and pave the way for them to expand into other criminal enterprises such as prostitution, kidnapping- and-extortion rackets and money laundering.
In Mexico, the cartels are known for a staggering number of killings more than 50,000, according to one tally. Beheadings are a signature. So far, cartels don't appear to be directly responsible for large numbers of slayings in the United States, though the Texas Department of Public Safety reported 22 killings and five kidnappings in Texas at the hands of Mexican cartels from 2010 through mid- 2011. Still, police worry that increased cartel activity could fuel heightened violence.--SNIP--
In Chicago, narco/cop Commander James O'Grady, said street-gang disputes over turf account for most of the city's uptick in murders last year, when slayings topped 500 for the first time since 2008.
Although the cartels aren't dictating the territorial wars, they are the source of drugs. Riley's assessment is stark: He argues that the cartels should be seen as an underlying cause of Chicago's disturbingly high murder rate. "They are the puppeteers," he said. "Maybe the shooter didn't know and maybe the victim didn't know that. But if you follow it down the line, the cartels are ultimately responsible."
A FREE PASS FOR BEHEADINGS Viscious Mexican drug cartels behead people who try to stop them. The Mexican drug lords are partners in financial arrangements with Hamas and Hezbollah terorists. The savage terroristss will be empowered to expand those partnerships via The Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill, and Obomba/Holder are aiding and abetting the terrorist schemes. Its a small step from blanketing America w/ marijuana and heroin to aiding and abetting Hezbollah terrorist operations. To these hardened criminal, the profit motive rules, no matter the source.
No way to reform it until the money runs out.
It’s coming, and it’s going to be a tough time.
Anyone willing to say no more gets dubbed a racist by America’s intelligentsia. If common sense, national pride, and being honest about crime and welfare staistics makes me a racist — then I’m a racist. I just wish more people would show a little backbone and stop cowering in fear of that stupid word. It’s meaningless, but it’s the Trojan Horse being used to transform America — for the worse.
Agreed. “Racism” has about as much social punch as “divorced” and “unwed mother” unfortunately.
This BS with outside entities and legal groups drafting laws, handing them to Representatives and Senators to bring up on the floor without knowing whats in them is complete tyranny. We did not elect these shadow law groups, we elected our Representatives and Senators. This is complete and total failure of the American system of Republicanism.
COMMENTS Clearly vote-crazed pols are prostrate in obeisance, taking orders from foreign agents cunningly attempting to undermine US ntl security on the pretext of "immigration reform." These foreign control agents present a clear and present danger to Americans....and must be stopped.
Immigration reform is the gateway to terrorism. "Ethnic solidarity" is rearing its ugly head (think Boston bombers w/ a latino accent). US politicans are clearly colluding and conspiring with foreign agents to undermine US ntl security and placing Americans in danger.
Manyn wonder why the Tamerlan brothers---here 10 years---waited til now to launch terror. They finally got the word.
"It's open season to conduct dirty deeds....and US politicans are helping us. So, all you "undocumented" terrorists, come on down---invade the US, and bring bombs "
” a special broad-based eligibility program that disregards income and asset requirements.” ??? What is this?
The US govt is paying illegals to enter our country while telling citizens the borders are secure.
