The Obama administration met with Mexican officials and held other events to discuss enrollment in food stamps and similar programs roughly 30 times since President Obama took office, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack revealed in a recent letter to Congress.
They were among 151 documented meetings and events held since 2004, when the United States and Mexico first started partnering on food-stamp awareness. That partnership, though, has raised alarm with Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who is concerned the collaboration amounts to a vehicle for the USDA to pressure people onto the food-stamp rolls -- in this case, noncitizen immigrants from Mexico.
Vilsack released the information in response to Sessions request this summer for more details about the U.S.-Mexico Partnership for Nutrition Assistance initiative, which educates Mexican immigrants about food stamps and other assistance.
The initiative is one of several the agency has to promote awareness of nutrition assistance among those who need benefits and meet all program requirements under current law, Vilsack told Sessions in the 24-page letter, dated Sept. 12.

Coming soon: El Obamafono por todos!
Can you imagine the Mexicans, or ANY foreign government, wanting to give US citizens billions of dollars worth of FREE STUFF? Buehler? Buehler?
Why bother to have a Congress when el presidente has near total power?
Everyone on earth knows by now, the US Congress AND the current administration are jelly!
The problem with this nes is that Romney won’t say anything about it.
I wonder how many meetings he held with El Presidente in regard to Fast & Furious???
30 times eh? Sounds like he couldn’t bribe them to “forget” all about F&F...
to promote awareness of nutrition assistance...”
Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s racist...
"The world owes you a living...no matter how lazy, dumb, slovenly, drunk, drug-addicted...no matter how many convictions for distribution/possesion, armed robbery, domestic violence, rape/sexual assualts, murder and mayhem, no matter how many screwups, jobs lost, kids abandoned. Illegals and aliens from other worlds are welcome to our free buffet!"
"The world owes you a living and Obama's gonna make sure US taxpayers pay for it."
The modern bread line in America is over 48 million people long now, its called Food Stamps.
It’s not just Mexicans. The Haitians can have multiple wives and we do allow them to honor their traditions while living in the United States. They do receive thousands a month in food stamps even if they don’t need it. I believe they can get up to 2600.00 a month but don’t quote me on that number.
