Illegal immigrants are bared from food stamps, as well as cash welfare assistance, Medicaid, HUD assistance and even the new health care law.

This isn't new, checking immigration status has been part of welfare programs for well over a decade.

I care about things taught in the military like integrity, honor and truth. Not repeating stories debunked hundreds of times.

If you want to really honor military personnel the best thing to do is try and live by those values.

The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers

Whats de-bunked?

Because they check for status, means nothing....

This report estimates the annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level to be about $113 billion; nearly $29 billion at the federal level and $84 billion at the state and local level.

Hopefully, the military will get their ballots timely in 2014.

For the Federal programs.
States are free to expand to illegals per the 1996 Welfare reform bill.
22 states offer welfare services to illegals.
Both Obamacare and the Senate passed amnesty bill are very specific regarding the welfare programs and both state "Federal" regarding eligibility. States are left to do whatever they want.


California probably has the most generous set of programs for immigrants, both legal and illegal.
In fact CA enacted a law in 2011 that prohibited the use of e-verify for employment.

Medi-Cal FAQs 2014
1. What eligibility requirements will an undocumented person have to meet come 2014?
An undocumented person must meet the same eligibility requirements as any other beneficiary such as income limits and California residency in 2014.

2. Does everyone on the application have to be a U.S. citizen or U.S. national?
No. You may qualify for health insurance through Medi-Cal even if you are not a U.S. citizen or a U.S. national.

They are pandering to their voter base since the military historically votes conservative.
