It’s been done for many years. I remember in the 1990s when some illegal immigrants were arrested in Alabama. The Feds made the local law enforcement let the truckload go. The illegals were instructed to drive to Georgia where the feds were supposed to take care of them. haha It is very strange the last few weeks. We go to our grocery store during the first week of the month, and there are long lines of folks at the checkout because that’s when EBT cards refill. But the last few weeks, when we have gone to the store, there are lines even when it’s not renewal week. This is not due to less workers. Almost all of the customers seem to be not from around here.
That freaking bites my backside. I was just told I was ineligible for my Medicare premiums to be paid because I didn’t provide a bank account. I don’t HAVE a bank account. So I am going to be farther below the poverty level than I already am so some effing alien can get my money, even though they can’t speak-o Engrish.
The bad thing is, my rent will be same, as will my expenses, until the COL goes up. Then I will have even less money to try to exist on.
