Illegal immigrant households tapping into the federal food stamp program are receiving $1.4 billion to $2.1 billion a year despite their ineligibility, according to a new analysis of the Agriculture Department program.

Go to the grocery stores along the Texas border and watch Mexicans stream across, US EBT cards in hand. They should be arrested for fraud.
We work to house, cloth, and feed folks who will breed us out of existence.
White Lives Matter? Guess not...
The Democrats made a genius move when they put the jurisdiction of food stamps under the Agriculture Dept rather than (what was then) HEW.
They got BIG AG and BIG FOOD on the team along with BIG WELFARE.
Good. Send them back to Mexico so Nieto can take care of them. This liberal insanity has to stop.
Yes, it was deliberate. Feeding the big machine that makes Demcrat voters and builds the welfare state.
George Bush started this. He owns it.
“Por La Raza todo, Fuera de La Raza nada”
This is so messed up.
I don’t think we should have federal government welfare, but if we do then citizens should obviously enjoy preferential treatment, even to the exclusion of all others.
Citizens of other countries who broke into our country are bleeding us dry.
Someone posted a few weeks ago the list of household goods and housing quality they get. Some of us don’t have half what they get but we get the bill.
Part 1 of how to deport illegal aliens.

Cash for votes.
End of story.
Is there massive fraud in all handouts? The real problem is the handouts.
Solution: Dont tax wages of the working poor. No FICA, no employers share. Total wages go to the worker.
Unlike a minimum wage, this does not hurt employers or consumers.
Of course, also end EITC, food stamps and other welfare.
BUT??? They’re living in the shadows.
Who is surprised by this?
Stay away from WalMart the first week of the month
That’s why Trump will win the black vote. They know this. They see it with their own eyes at the Dept. of Soc. Services. I’ve heard b!tch!n about it on numerous occasions.
