This. Agriculture is one of the most socialized industries in this country and they use their influence in Washington to push policies like this that benefit them. And most of them are probably Republicans!

I used to know a Republican farmer in small town RED Kansas who went around promoting the idea that America should provide food aid to Cuba for just this reason. It would benefit his bottom line. And most of the Republicans he talked to were receptive of the idea.

Just to be clear, human service departments still have to verify that people receiving food stamps are legal citizens of the United States via birth certificates.

Illegals get food stamps for and through their kids.

Only a paranoid lunatic would think the US government is conspiring to make this country less White.

Besides, only citizens qualify for food stamps, so no need to check for immigration status, just check for citizenship status.

That is pretty obvious. But do you really think the main motivation for people to often risk death to come here and then go through constant fear of deportation is so they can take that risk just to wait until they have kids so they can get a few hundred dollars a month in food stamps? Maybe a few would, but that is not the main problem here. And that is not why food stamps are available to their kids.

Doesn't matter. Their parents broke our immigration laws. If not for that these kids wouldn't have been born here and sucking off the goverment teet. Why would you just mention kids of Hispanic descent? Do you actually think that there aren't any parents here illegally from other ethnic groups giving birth on our soil? It is bankrupting our country. IMO, to gain any form of welfare the parents should have to be citizens of our country and they should be the qualifer not their kids.

I don't give a damn what their motivation is for being here. Their entire family here illegally needs to leave and take their U.S. born minor children with them. When they are of age they can choose what country they want to reside in. Minor kids belong with their parents.

The kids get the welfare, but any person in their right mind would't give food stamps to a 5 year old to manage.

So? I stand by what I said. The parents should have to be the qualifer to receive food stamps and other government subsidies. If the parents aren't citizens then they nor their kids should get nothing.
