Skip to comments.House votes to end USDA/Mexico food stamp promotion partnership
Posted on 06/20/2013 7:42:28 AM PDT by mandaladon
The House passed an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday to end the Agriculture Departments partnership with the Mexican government to promote nutrition assistance programs.
It is outrageous that for nearly ten years the U.S. Department of Agriculture has, in collaboration with the Mexican government, used taxpayer dollars to promote food stamp enrollment to foreign nationals, Tennessee Republican Rep. Diana Black, the amendments sponsor, said.
The Daily Caller first brought attention to the USDAs partnership with the Mexican government to promote nutrition assistance programs, including food stamps, among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America last summer.
Blacks amendment is the first piece of legislation to date, which has passed, that addresses the partnership. Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions attempted to attach similar legislation to the Senate farm bill earlier this month, but his amendment was never brought to the Senate floor for a vote.
As the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program has grown, Republicans have questioned the partnership, which was started in 2004 by the Bush administration.
In a recent letter to Sessions, Agriculture Sec. Tom Vilsack revealed that since 2009 USDA officials have met 18 times with the Mexican Embassy and participated in seven roundtables. Vilsack acknowledged that USDA officials have had 18 meetings, seven roundtables with Mexican Embassy officials and three health fairs since 2009.
Judicial Watch revealed in April that one of the fliers the USDA has provided a to the Mexican Embassy notifies potentially ineligible immigrants that their children are still eligible for food stamps and that to obtain the benefits, ineligible parents would not have to provide documentation.

Oh and we’ve been told over and over that illegals don’t get government benefits!
Will this pass in the Senate?
Ten years ago.
Do I hear an executive order nearby?
One latino (who got caught) ripped off UI for some $3.4 MILLION using several identities. The Washington state rapist had 30 identities----collecting (and voting) many times over.
Cong Black needs to curtail the Merida Initiative---whereby Mexico collects millions in tax dollars for their "drug problem"........a problem they created.
And also the millions handed over to bloodthirsty La Raza---which teaches violence and killing American in our schools.La Raza Studies does not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans:
Raza Studies textbook Occupied America, by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him, (pg. 323). The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America (pg. 167): .......execute all white males over age 16, (AKA the Plan of San Diego).
America-hating Raza Studies teach (1) violence, (2) undermining US ntl security, and, (3) the need for Mexico to "re-take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation. "
SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASE Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress. Cong Raul Grijalva is one of Mexicos most productive and loyal Fifth Column in the US Congress....aiding and abetting the latino criminal underworld, colluding to take back the SW, and loot and pillage the US treasury.
Raul and friend.
Vote-crazed Dems and deranged, legacy-driven Ohaha are in collusion w/ Mexico, making deals for aye votes in exchange for hyphenate votes at the ballot box. O will x-out any provisions that interfere w/ his plans.
As I posted earlier:.....why do we taxpayers have to worry about border security AND foot the bills for it?
When does Mexico step up to the plate? After all, they are the ones who will be pocketing zillions in US tax dollars (foreign aid and other giveaways power-crazed Ohaha can dream up). Vote-crazed Dems are gonna turn on the tax tap full force.
LYING IN WAIT The "pressure groups" Mexico threw over the border are lying in wait----conniving to exchange hyphenate votes for tax dollars.
Taxpayers demand oil-rich Mexico vamoose-o the cantinas and the senoritas, and police their own borders.
This reminds us of the Boston bombers-—the entire parasitic Tsarneav family was sucking up tax dollars from multiple social programs-—God only know how many phony ID’s they used.
The dead bomber’s Amazon page showed him reading how-to books on establishing phony ID’s
While the program they symbolically ended was a scandal in itself, I wonder about the sanity of any member of congress who supports giving illegals the vote while cutting poverty $$ handout programs.
It seems that *they* should be on the Pelosi side of that issue.
Find it strange when the excuse is being given that while the government knows whats going on in 300 million citizens lives but because the illegals are not citizens and in “the shadows” according to Florida’s Senator Rubio the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..
FR’s are urged to visit or message their respective Congressional Representatives and let them know their feelings. Are American living in Mexico entitled to their food stamps?
WHEN IT COMES TO AMNESTY
THIS IS THE MEXICAN PART NO ONE DARES MENTION
If you agree with the above and the following please don’t let it lay here in FR-land. Pass it on to to your favorite talk show host and to your US legislators.
PUSH THE HASTERT RULE.
In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. Theres a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.
SOLVING THE ‘LATINO” PROBLEM A MYTH HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE BUT A POLITICAL LINGUISTIC CONTRIVANCE ...don’t fall into the hyphenated Americans trap created by the hyphenated political party ...The DEMO-COMS
The Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. Theyre permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country dont get.. Worse yet the Obama government has been working hand in glove with Mexican movements such as LaRaza supporting the Mexican claims which are also supporting “Amnesty”.
Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory is a recipe for later serious problems which are happening now.
ARE MEXICAN ILLEGALS SQUATTERS PERPETUATING THE MEXICAN CLAIMS ?
We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). Its displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. Were courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.
MOST COINS OF THE REALM HAVE TWO FACES WHAT ABOUT HOW ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS LIVING IN MEXICO BEING TREATED ?
Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. Theyll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesnt apply to a citizen of Mexico, Americans residing in Mexico are not entitled to nor get any assistance from the Mexican government and probably if need it get sent back. Never mind getting food stamps.
THE SOLUTION ASSERT OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND TALK RECIPROCITY .
By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally were offering no incentive for assimilation and were not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico. ENOUGH OF THE ONE WORLD SOCIALISM ...BRING BACK SOVEREIGNTY AND SANITY TO OUR COUNTRY .....BRING BACK BELIEF IN GOD ...THIS GOVERNMENT OUT OUR FACE..... OUR RELIGIONS..... AND OUR BEDROOMS..
Makes sense. When they grant all Mexican nationals US citizenship, it would be redundant.
That is correct.
That is how I read it too. They won’t make any more brochures or advertise to them on the Spanish channels.
