Posted on 07/19/2012 7:58:23 PM PDT by Nachum
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said that the United States Department of Agriculture rejected his request for documents pertaining to its collaboration with the Mexican government to increase the number of Mexican nationals receiving food stamps. USDA rebuffed initial requests from my staff to hand over basic documents concerning the Administrations partnership with Mexico to implement this program, Sessions said in a statement this afternoon. I have now laid out in a letter precisely what information USDA needs to turn over. It should be provided at once. USDA spokeswoman Alyn Kiel told told

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Why are U.S. taxpayers being forced to feed Mexican Nationals? I think it’s time to dig out the impeachment word. Barry has got to go.
Next Obama will sign an EO to allow all the peoples around the world to be allowed to vote for the President. After all, everything that happens in America influences the rest of the word. At the very least they should be able to have a say with that which influences their own nation.
I could see Obama doing this.
And here in FR we would again ask: “Where is John Boehner?”
This entire administration is all about lie, deny, delay, deflect, obfuscate, ignore and accuse.
It will take generations to undo the damage if it can be undone at all.
I’m so tired of our Governmnet giving our money away!!! We don’t have it to give it away! Deport, and you won’t have to feed them!
he sends ballots with the food stamps LOL
This program started in 2004. This time it IS Bush’s fault.
Sooner or later, you all will find out that there is no ‘border’ between the US and Mexico anymore.
Border patrol stations are being closed. FBI agents are being hired and sent down there to ensure the safety of the ‘smugglers’ (the Sinaloa Cartel) who must pay fees to the government to move anything across the border.
USDA and the government of Mexico have entered into a partnership to help educate eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States about available nutrition assistance, the USDA says...”
Please tell me how Mexican nationals become eligible for food stamps.
My guess is they can apply for food stamps without having to establish citizenship or legal residence. That's that case for many things; they only have to be physically present in the USA and no citizenship questions are asked.
Sen. Sessions is looking into this...to see if, in fact, it started on Bush's watch.
I don’t care if it started when Geo. Washington was President, it’s still a bad idea.
“Where is Boehner”
The only thing I can think of is if impeachment proceedings were to be started (aside that it would never come to fruition in the Senate) it might very well rally those that are wishy-washy about O and those not paying attention.
If, heaven forbid, O wins in November I could see a second term riddled with harrassment. Of course that is assuming we retain the House and hopefully get control of the Senate. That is where my sights are set.
I fill out the food stamp form for my 92 y.o. mother and it asks about citizenship and they also ask in a follow up interview.
If these Mexican nationals are folks who are here on a visa to work, I don’t think they should be eligible.
Sessions is one that we’ll re-elect.
Do they just ask, or do they require verification? For the question to carry any weight, it should require verification, at least on an initial application.
With all the identity fraud that illegal aliens commit, I doubt a little lie on form would deter any of them, and who knows if those charged with enforcing this rule enforce it any more than other laws concerning illegal immigrants are enforced.
I don't how, but I'd bet that a fair number of illegal aliens receive food stamps. And isn't that program administered by the states? We know some states would make no effort to eliminate illegals.
By having anchor babies. If the mom and dad are from ______ and they have 4 babies here the parents receive food stamps for those 4. Yeah like the parents don’t eat the food too.
