The family of Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the two brothers accused in the Boston Marathon bomb attacks, received food stamps and welfare when the brothers were growing up, according to a letter from the state Department of Transitional Assistance that was obtained by the Globe.
In the letter, sent Thursday to the chairman of the House Post Audit and Oversight Committee, the department outlined the benefits that the brothers had received through their parents, Anzor and Zubeidat, as well as benefits Tamerlan Tsarnaev later received as a member of his wifes household.
Anzor and Zubeidat received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, commonly known as food stamps, from October 2002 to November 2004, when Dzhokhar would have been about 8 to 10 years old and Tamerlan 15 to 17. The family also received them from August 2009 to December 2011, according to the letter.
Anzor was also a Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children grantee from January 2003 to March 2003, and again from August 2009 to June 2010.
Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children is a state and federally funded program that provides cash assistance to families with children and pregnant women, according to the letter. The program is commonly known as welfare.
The Tsarnaev parents were eligible for benefits as legal non-citizen residents with asylum status who met the basic eligibility criteria, which include household income levels and dependent children, according to the letter. The Tsarnaev brothers were both in the country legally.
Tamerlans wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, also received food stamps and welfare benefits from September 2011 to November 2012, according to the letter.
Neither Tamerlan, who was 26 when he died last week, nor Dzhokhar, who is 19, ever directly received welfare or food stamps, according to the letter.

This is Whitey Bulger country, and don't you forget it!
The final information is not in on how the bombs were detonated but it’s believed they used a toy remote control device to do the job.
The wife moved out of state and back with her parents, her benefits didn’t end, they would come from another Sate. She left town and so went Tamerlan’s wife beating welfare layabout future with her. Worse, he was then on the hook for child support and with nobody to slap in the mouth no and again. He could’t even follow in his loser Father’s footsteps. Rage!
we gave these people welfare and citizenship and even school scholarships
because we Americans and our govt hate muslims
which is why we set up 9-11 to make muslims look bad
according to MRS Cuckoo the shoplifting mother of these 2 psychos
There is more here than meets the eye - or TV, or newspapers, or response from government.
That said, this government allowed these posers into this country under the guise of ‘refugee’ where they assimilated - directly into the entitlement society that Obama has oh-so-carefully crafted. That special group of people that so easily become disenchanted when they don’t get all he promised, don’t get on E! or whatever show, or win the lottery they play that we pay for.
In the end, they become disenchanted and return to their roots. In this case, rabid diseased Muslim roots of hate and evil. They all have a little bit of it in them.
“Give a man fish and .....” He’ll kill innocent people.
The end of these benefits seems to correspond to the time that Tamerlan returned from his 6 month trip to Russia, and his mother's arrest for shoplifting, and the parent's exodus back to the "home" country.
We can call this “state-sponsored terrorism”
Now its our own state that is sponsoring the terrorists.
Section 8 housing and Mass Health are not mentioned. Also college tuition and housing. No one ever gets off section 8. In fact come the first another check will be cut for their housing.
SUSPECTS? The pos admitted he and his a..hole brother did it. If you saw the pictures of a guy being wheeld along with his leg just bone from midthigh down you'd think squeeze the dirtbag for all the information he has, try him, convict him, and sentence him to death. I haven't seen crap like that in 43 years, and it doesn't bring back pleasant memories.
Has anyone created a time line of the life of these losers? Would be really interesting to spread around media and FB.
What I want to know is what were they seeking asylum from when they came to the US? If Russia was so bad, why did mom and pop move back?
A few years ago, I got involved with an extended family that came over from Russia. They were an ethnic minority that were given asylum n the US because of “persecution” in their homeland. But not the entire family came to the US. I asked them why one of the brothers stayed behind. The response was: “He owned a shop and was making pretty good money.”
All of the family that came over as refugees were receiving public assistance...
