OUTRAGE: USDA Partners with Mexico to Give More Food Stamps to ‘Mexican Nationals’ in U.S.

Stand with Arizona

The inmates are truly running the asylum in Washington.

Last week we learned that the USDA was pimping food stamps on Spanish-language radio, as so-called "novellas". Characters pressured others to apply for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps, and made them feel silly if they didn't. After massive public outrage, the USDA pulled the ads last Friday.

Now we learn that the USDA has been "partnering" with the Mexican Government itself in order to increase food stamp participation among Mexicans living in the United States...

The (agreement) sees to it that the Mexican Embassy and Mexican consulates in America provide USDA nutrition assistance program information to Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals working in America and migrant communities in America. The information is specifically focused on eligibility criteria and access.
Some of the materials the USDA encourages the Mexican government to use to educate and promote the benefit programs s include Spanish brochures titled “Five Easy Steps To Snap Benefits,” “How To Get Food Help,” “Ending Hunger Improving Nutrition Combating Obesity,” and posters with slogans like “Food Stamps Make America Stronger.”

Mexico is NOT a poor nation - it is the world's 10th richest, in fact. It boasts the world's richest man, Carlos Slim Helú, worth $69 billion. It has a state run oil monopoly, Pemex, worth $416 billion  - the second largest private company on Earth.

Yet Mexico cynically uses the United states as its outsourced welfare system. It sends hundreds of thousands of its poor illegal aliens to the U.S. every year - even printing a guide to help them cross the border and get benefits in the U.S. -  and calls us racists when we try and stop it. And despite collecting billions in welfare, food stamps, WIC and even fraudulent IRS tax credits - those same illegals still send over $23 billion home in wages earned by taking unlawful jobs from Americans back to Mexico in cash transfers ("remittances").

Mexican takes and takes from us, and like the chumps we are, we keep giving. And now the USDA wants to give even more by using Mexico to increase the amount of food stamps their citizens can scam from us?

But wait...doesn't the USDA claim that illegal aliens are not eligible SNAP, or food stamps, or WIC assistance? They sure do. And they may well want to sell you a Bridge in Brooklyn, too. Because despite their so-called restriction on illegal alien eligibility, those illegals take in billions in fraudulent food stamps and WIC benefits every single year.

Here are just two local news reports illustrating how easy it is for illegal to grab these benefits...

We do not need a fence on the southern boarder. China, Russia, Australia, and hundreds of other countries have no fence, nor do they have immigration problems. This is easy. Our immigration problem exists because we GIVE stuff away to any one who is here. People come here because of what we GIVE them. If you sneak into Russia or China you get nothing. No reason to go there. If we quit giving stuff away, people will quit coming.

illegals take in billions in fraudulent food stamps and WIC benefits every single year and do not forget those tax refund checks, was it $1000,00 up $ 30,000. Claiming dependents back in Mexico to gain bigger refunds ? America the gift that just keeps giving and giving and gaving.

There is an AP sob story in today’s Arizona Republic about U.S. anchor babies not being able to obtain basic services in Mexico as a result of their parents returning without proper U.S. paperwork. I still think at some point Mexico is going to build the dang fence to help us keep the illegals and their anchor babies.

Not only feed and house, but treat at emergency rooms if they get sick. Perhaps improved nutrition might be a net savings in hospital care costs. I studied in Mexico many years ago, the gap between the poor and the well off was truly staggering. One thing that frightens me now is that the same thing is happening in our country. Whereas 30 or 40 years ago the ratio of top CEO salaries to low level worker wages was around 40 to 1, by the time of our big crash recently in 2008 the ratio ranged from 400 to 1 up to 1,000 to 1. These ratios have come down some since then but I think the average is still around 200 to 1. I am surprised that Tea Party people are not more concerned with that issue.

Why is all of this happening at the rate at which it is happening? I would really like to know. Are that many Americans ignorant?

It is time for a TAX REVOLT!

I'm speechless. This is an outrage!!

These are our American taxpayer dollars our sonofanbitchin' politicians are giving away to these illegal alien parasites. Rather, it is money borrowed from China which our children and grandchildren will have to pay back. It has been stolen from us to buy illegal votes and influence from them. It's thievery, pure and simple...

Frankly, this is about beyond the "taxpayer revolt" stage we find ourselves at. We are (or we should be, if we had any b@lls left) at about the "blood in the streets" stage of revolt. We threw King George III and his Lobsterbacks out of the country for less than this! Our own Marxist tyrants need to go next!!

Hell, get the rope and feathers and heat up the tar. The bastards just aren't listening. They really need their minds concentrated...

It's called the Cloward-Piven strategy: bankrupt the U.S. to cause the downfall of the system, to set the stage for a marxist takeover.
