For anyone who doubts it - here is info from one of California's own publications:

FAMILIES WITH UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS

I am undocumented but my children are citizens. Can I get food stamps for them?
Yes. Even though you cannot get food stamps for yourself, you should be able to get food stamps for your children if they are U.S. citizens or eligible immigrants. Even if you or your family members can't get food stamps, you can still get school lunch and breakfast, WIC, and go to soup kitchens, community food banks, meals on wheels and other food programs.

I am undocumented. Will I be reported to the immigration authorities if I apply for
food stamps for my children?

The food stamps office only has to report you to the immigration authorities if it has proof (such as a final order of deportation) that you are in the country unlawfully. You should not tell anyone that you or someone in your family is undocumented. If you are not seeking food stamps for yourself, you do not need to give information about your immigration status, and should not present a false or invalid Social Security Number. But you will need to give information about your earnings or any property you may have, like a car. You should tell your food stamp worker that you are not trying to get benefits for yourself, and that you are not a “qualified” or “eligible” immigrant. “Not qualified” or “not eligible” is not the same as undocumented. Remember, it is illegal for the government to treat you differently just because of the way you look or because you are from a particular country. Your caseworkers are not supposed to ask you any further questions about your immigration status once you tell them that you are not applying for foodstamps for yourself.

If you have questions, call one of the numbers below to find out how to get help.

Yep, these instructions are just some of the info that the state of CA has published and is giving to illegals. They have a problem w/ illegals . . . well, NO WONDER.

By doing nothing I mean atleast look into it .

Being an enabler when it comes to illegal's is easy impossible to get caught on the pay roll as all a politician has to do is turn a blind eye to it .

No need for any action simply ignore it.
When the gov't tries to do anything like hiring more border patrol agents, they are called racists and every effort is made to picket, riot or sue. Again, when you have thousands of criminals with schemes to beat the system, it's tough to manage without additional resources. Now if you're saying politicians are paid by some of these illegals or even Mexico, maybe. If they are hell bent on breaking the law, I'm sure they can find some folks willing to take a few bribes.

It seems to me, this would be considered aiding and abetting. To actually instruct people not to divulge their illegal status, is beyond reprehensible.

Yep, California's financial ruin is its own doing. When this state ends up going bankruptcy and requiring the fed'l gov't to step in, maybe it will serve as a case study on what not to do when it comes to illegal immigration. The Los Angeles Mayor (the cheating Villarosa) who will likely run for Governor is against ICE and other gov't agencies or community groups that try to stop illegal immigration so the future could get even worse.
