Agreed. What amazes me the most are those who have the nerve to get angry at us for being angry about the raping, pillaging and destruction of our country at the hands of them and their illegal alien friends and family members.

This section here just amazes me (highlighted in blue), and perhaps could explain, in large part, why California is in such incredible debt.

And then, the section goes on to say that it's illegal for the government to discriminate (see red text)!!! Hahahahahaha. If a person is illegal, then what rights do they have here to sue OUR government? That's ridiculous!!!

I'm not a cruel person, yes, kids need things, but to provide for families that ought not be here when they're here by the millions is WRONG. And this is the official advice???


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 food stamps for yourself. If you have questions, call one of the numbers below to find out how to get help.
See Underlined ! have you ever tried to sue your government?? You can't!!! the courts won't hear the matter. So why are the government officials so afraid a illegal will sue them ??? this is not rediculous , It's down right STUPPID!

That sort of malarky will wind up bankrupting California.

What does concern/anger me is my tax dollars (from my depleted income compared to 2007) being used to prop up that loser state just west of me with its damn illegal aliens.

People, before you respond to this thread, be sure to read the contents of the link posted.[/list][/list]Read in between the lines...

Between the lines? One doesn't need too, it's right there like a manual for the invaders to use step by step.

Keep your mouth shut, lie and fill out the forms in Spanish and you are good. Just reach into the pocket of the un-suspecting tax payers and it's a free for all. Thanks low life criminals.
I despise anyone who uses their children for personal gain. That is the lowest form of life out there.

Can Mexico and South America possibly sponge off of the US anymore than they are now? I doubt it.

READ THESE LINES!

In fiscal year 1995, about $1.1 billion in AFDC and Food Stamp benefits
were provided to households with an illegal alien parent for the use of his
or her citizen child. This amount accounted for about 3 percent of AFDC
and 2 percent of Food Stamp benefit costs. A vast majority of the
households receiving these benefits resided in a few states—85 percent of
the AFDC households were in California, New York, Texas, and Arizona; 81
percent of Food Stamp households were in California, Texas, and Arizona.
California households alone accounted for $720 million of the combined
AFDC and Food Stamp benefit costs
, with such households representing
about 10 percent of the state’s AFDC and Food Stamp caseloads. Although
illegal aliens also received SSI and HUD housing assistance for their citizen
children, data to develop estimates for these two programs were not
available.

Which is one of the many causes of this country's inevitable financial collapse.

We cannot afford to take in the worlds' population of the most dysfunctional, unskilled, uneducated, abundantly breeding, poverty stricken masses and expect to survive. This is a fact that our government needs to be consistently reminded of via fax, phone, email and if possible in person.

From what I understand from reading about the subject of illegal aliens on Welfare is, that the welfare system gives the illegal aliens welfare to support the Anchor Babies and the household and the entire family whether they're legal or not.

So, yes grandma could be eating off the government teat and benefit from "English As A Second Language" (ESL) class. If she were smart enough to learn English in the first place.

Most illegal aliens don't know how to speak English, they can't even read and write their own language.

What's really bad is that many of the illegals (and legals) are "enticed" into having many children so that they can keep upping their allotment of food stamps, WIC coupons and housing allowance.

The welfare life attracts many of them, they become very accustomed to it very quickly. If they should ever be deported, it's going to be especially difficult for them as many of them have little familiarity with work. Imagine their terror in being sent back to Mexico where they aren't going to be paid well to breed and would be expected to work to support their children -- and possibly work very hard?

Oh well (I agree with your assessment).
