El Pasoans Feast On Food Stamps - News Story - KFOX El Paso

"KFOX-14 met other El Pasoans who have been using the program for more than a decade, including Gloria Vargas.

If the parents aren't residents, [Texas Health and Human Services] will give them help for their children," Vargas said. She said she has been receiving food benefits for 15 years, since her son was born."

Interesting, no? I like how the use the word residents instead of "legal immigrants" or "citizens".

Seriously... for 15 years? Is that a way of life now?

Now correct me if I'm wrong but I thought there was a 5yr maximum for a person to receive food stamps? Is the 5yr maximum only for welfare benefits and not food stamps?

Only one welfare program called TANF has any time limits on it. A lot of illegals live on food stamps.

Interesting comments after the article, probably mostly from El Pasoans, and notice the writer of the article is "hispanic", people resent the illegals pouring over the border to give birth and live the welfare life the rest of their years.

At one point, you have to question how many people of the world can we just bring in to support on welfare programs, and while many of these welfare recipients are legal immigrants a great number of them are not. And there is a problem with legal immigrants coming over for lifelong welfare handouts also, it's not only about illegal immigration. The standards for legal immigration are far too low when people who have no ability to support themselves can simply come on over and head straight to the welfare offices.

Yes it's a way of life - interesting that even the welfare recipients see the abuse of the welfare system, they also are from over the border, gave birth here but admit that people come here and have children they can never afford. It's just too easy and there is no way this can continue.

Absolutely disgusting, Lazy, able bodied Losers should not be able to collect anything after a year and Illegals and their parasitic spawn should be starved out of the US and forced to leave.

Food stamps seem to provide enough for these losers to be grossly obese and reproduce yet they're still unable to learn English in all the years they are here.

An anchor kid is as good as a free debit card. What a culture. I'm sure the Parents didn't indulge in anything bought with the stamps, right? Being honest and hard working and all that.

Our own citizens are being denied benefits, while our government generously provides for all foreigners who manage to enter this country, regardless of immigration status. How anyone can condone this, is way beyond my realm of compehension.

I have never hated anyone in my entire life, with the exception of scum who molest or abuse innocent, defenseless children. Slowly but surely, due to their arrogance and brazen fleecing of U.S. taxpayers, I am beginning to actually hate illegal aliens. As a Christian, taught to love, illegal immigration truly grieves my spirit.

I understand how you feel. As a Jew taught to fight social injustice and for equality and human dignity, I have wrestled with this as well. However I cannot condone the wholesale lawbreaking and brazen theft of resources from American citizens.

I've been to some of the cities along the Texas border with Mexico, to say they have been taken over by illegals is an understatement.

You'd swear driving into one of those cities you were in little mexico, not America.
