A government watchdog group has discovered that the United States government is advising Spanish-speaking residents that they need not declare their immigration status to qualify for food stamps.
Judicial Watch obtained the Spanish-language flyers through a Freedom of Information Act request and announced on Thursday that the "promotion of the food stamp program, now known as 'SNAP' (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), includes a Spanish-language flyer provided to the Mexican Embassy by the USDA.
A statement on the flyer—emphasized in bold and underlined—reads, “You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.”

Can anyone actually continue to argue that this government is not trying to flood this country with uneducated immigrants in order to diminish the white majority?

I just want to know why we are going to great lengths to attract poor people to cross our borders and get on welfare programs. Why ?
How does a country prosper like this ?

That's easy. The farm lobby. They'd have us deliver it to Mexico as "food aid" if they could.

im guessing the person who started this thread doesnt realize that the flyer is not to give illegal aliens food stamps, but to give it to their children. the same way that the child of a convicted felon would also get food stamps.

the title is misleading

If one is illegal, they should be packed up and deported with the option of taking their anchor baby with them or the child placed in an orphanage.

So who will pick your fruits and vegetables? Some of this you're getting back because the farmers can pay the workers who do that less because of food stamps.

Much of the socialism in this country is driven by rural interests. This is just one example. For some others read the detailed "fees" in your phone bill. Rural hospitals and airports also.

I don't think that's the goal. The goal is to increase Democrat voters dependent on Democrats so they stay in power. We should put politicians in jail for failing to enforce immigration laws originally designed so that the US didn't let too many poor people into the country who would put a burden on US taxpayers.

FYI, only 3% of illegals are picking crops. The other 97% are doing jobs that Americans will do for a fair wage. Even for farm workers there are unlimited visas for LEGAL foreign workers. So you were sayin? Most of the profits off of illegal workers are not being passed on to we the consumer the employers are pocketing the profits. They also pass the social costs of illegals on to we the taxpayer. So essentially that 15 cent tomato is actually 50 cents.

We don't have 11-20 million illegals living in cities picking fruit.
