USDA mum on details USDA-Mexico food stamp partnership, non-citizen participation in welfare
Daily Caller ^ | October 19, 2012 | Caroline May

Posted on 10/19/2012 10:53:43 AM PDT by opentalk

On the same day that Senate Budget Committee Republicans revealed that spending on federal welfare programs constituted the single largest expenditure in the 2011 budget, the Department of Agriculture failed to meet a key deadline to further explain its food stamp partnership with the Mexican government.

...(SNAP), or food stamps, which recently reached an all-time high enrollment of nearly 47 million participants.

Non-citizen participation in SNAP has quadrupled since 2001 and doubled since 2008.

This is every department in the obama administration. They all feel they are above the law and don't have to answer to anyone.

Odd that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program has the same initials as the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests and the Spay-Neuter Assistance Program.

Is this some sort of left-wing evil cabal? Maybe funded by George Soros?

Perhaps it is all sponsored and funded by the Soros New Abominable Planet network?

Why do we have a single non-citizen receiving SNAP benefits?

(Yeah, I know millions and millions of illegals get them.)

Benefits to illegals should be one of the very first areas to cut, period.

We have a lot of illegal aliens here in northern NJ, and at least 1/4 of the females I see between the ages of 20 and 40 are visibly pregnant.

I’m not kidding.

” We have a lot of illegal aliens here in northern NJ, and at least 1/4 of the females I see between the ages of 20 and 40 are visibly pregnant.”

We have a lot of illegal aliens here in southern California, and at least 80% of the females I see between the ages of 16 and 25 are visibly pregnant.

Not much of an exaggeration.

I absolutely believe that; can you imagine what Mexico is like for these people to come up here and live in slums, popping out at least one anchor baby (father unknown) so they can stay here, then just live on the dole among the worst, most dangerous Americans?

Administration Ignoring Law Denying Visas To 'Likely' Welfare Recipients, Senator Says

The Obama administration is waiving a law that requires it to deny visas and entry to non-citizens who are “likely at any time to become” a government dependent –and is ignoring requests for information regarding this move,

Sen. Jeff Sessions said today. Sen. Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued a statement after USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack missed the deadline to reply to oversight requests for data on expenditures for non-citizens on food stamps and information regarding the administration’s waiver of federal immigration law

I live in Northern California and no less than 75% of all the women are with child or have 2-3-4-5 in tow in the mainly Hispanic neighborhoods.

This is wealth redistribution from our Poverty Pimp Liberals in DC. Social justice of taking taxpayer dollars to pay for foreigners. Call it what you want, foreign aid comes to mind.

The point is that if you have more children, you get more goodies. This is the reason for the child explosion, the intended consequences of Social Programs to develop a base of people eternally Government dependent on food, housing, education, healthcare and employment (if any). It gives them just enough to breed as single parents and incentivizes them to have more illigitimate kids as you get more money per child/dependent.

I feel like a sucker paying taxes.

Same in southern CA. I see many 20 year olds with 2,3,4 kids, and one in the oven.

“This is wealth redistribution from our Poverty Pimp Liberals in DC.”

Sadly the Republicans in our various “Chambers of Commerce” want cheap labor, and want YOU & I to pay for it.

” I feel like a sucker paying taxes.”

Move over, fellow sucker.

The question might be asked. If Mittens wins, and the Senate switches to Republican control, and the HR remains in Republican hands, can we law abiding American citizens expect these hundreds of social programs to be vastly improved upon, and or done away with.

Treasury, the federal government increased spending on foreign aid by 80 percent and, in fiscal 2011, spent 76 percent more on foreign aid than it did securing the borders of the United States.

In fiscal 2008, the government spent a total of $11.427 billion in international assistance programs, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. In fiscal 2011, according to the statement, it spent $20.599 billion—an increase of $9.172 billion, or 80 percent, from 2008.

Stunning. Thanks for sharing... on the lighter brighter side Obama's pulling in lots of donations less than $200 and many less than $50. Foreign payback? With our MSM we'll never know... Hey you New York Times boys - how that 'we suck less' thing working for you?

“Non-citizen participation in SNAP has quadrupled since 2001 and doubled since 2008.”

George Bush sure did his part on that boneheaded program, didn’t he??? It would be so nice if we could complain about the other side without having our own being nearly as bad.

Indeed. In Calif. elderly illegals get CASH...more than what I get on SS. Calif has cut everything, but they didn’t cut that. Then they need to fix this food stamp mess. NO soda,
candy bars, junk food! That’s just payoff to political donors like Coca cola and Hershey. And sometimes the left is right....it IS welfare for the wealthy corporations.
