Luisa Fortin sometimes sits up at night, wondering what her clients are eating. She is the SNAP Outreach Coordinator for the Chattanooga Food Bank but lately she has done less outreaching.
Her families, working immigrants in northwest Georgia, are spooked by the political climate, Fortin said. Increasingly, shes being asked to explain how food stamps may impact immigration status, if not to outright cancel family food benefits.
Since mid-January, five of Fortins families have withdrawn from the SNAP program. One, the single mother of three citizen daughters, had fled to Georgia to escape an abusive husband. Another, two green-card holders with four young children, were thinking of taking on third jobs to compensate for the lost benefits. These families represent a small fraction of Fortin's caseload she estimates she has signed 200 immigrant families up for SNAP over the past six months but based on the

So..., much..., WINNING!
Food stamp outlays (ebts or whatever) will be a lot lower hopefully.
Go back home and eat up folks.
LOL! Another illegal alien invader sob story from the WaPo. Maybe if the invaders get hungry enough, they’ll go home.
Tough sh!t...Go home and get a job...
SNAP is food stamps. How are illegal aliens getting food stamps when they laughed me out of the building after Katrina and as a 100% disabled veteran I can’t get them now?
Exactly the stuff we need to clean up. Why would we let immigrants in to suck off the gov’t teat?
I know it sounds uncompassionate. But if you have a green card, you are SUPPOSED to be WORKING. No green cards for welfare.
Ever notice in these sob stories how many of these illegal alien mothers are ALWAYS “fleeing” abusive partners? Who is really tearing these “families” apart. It sure as hell isn’t PRESIDENT Trump.

Democrats and the media need to stop scaring qualified “immigrant families”.
If she’s talking about any “illegal immigrant families” maybe she can help them get home where they can eat rather than worrying that they aren’t eating with our tax dollars.
One of the criteria of being a legal immigrant to the US is one will not be a burden to the taxpayer. So by definition these migrants should not be here.
No, the illegals may be hungry.
SNAP (formerly food stamps) provides food assistance to 46 million+ people. See how Feeding America's helping families learn about & apply for the program.
LOL. Trump is starving immigrants!!!! The Washington Compost has a 10 reporter team investigating whether Trump is going around actually murdering immigrants too. And whether he laughs after he does so.
I’ll take this story seriously the first time I see a skinny Mexican.
At the very least, whoever sponsored the green card holder is on the hook for their support. I sponsored my wife and I had to fill out and sign an "Affidavit of Support" that basically says she will not receive any public assistance.
Of course, Obama gave out food stamps to anyone who asked for them.
Oh and thanks WaPo for the morale builder!
