Unreal… Obama Partners With Mexico to Boost US Food Stamp Use – Even Though Most Illegal Immigrants Collect Welfare

It’s as if he wants the country to fail.

The Obama Administration is using a Spanish soap opera format to push food stamps on illegal immigrants and Spanish-speaking Americans:

This is despite the fact that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies.

The Obama USDA is working with Mexico to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or food stamp program.
The Daily Caller reported:

The Mexican government has been working with the United States Department of Agriculture to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.

USDA has an agreement with Mexico to promote American food assistance programs, including food stamps, among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.

“USDA and the government of Mexico have entered into a partnership to help educate eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States about available nutrition assistance,” the USDA explains in a brief paragraph on their “Reaching Low-Income Hispanics With Nutrition Assistance” web page. “Mexico will help disseminate this information through its embassy and network of approximately 50 consular offices.”

The partnership — which was signed by former USDA Secretary Ann M. Veneman and Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Ernesto Derbez Bautista in 2004 — sees to it that the Mexican Embassy and Mexican consulates in America provide USDA nutrition assistance program information to Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals working in America and migrant communities in America. The information is specifically focused on eligibility criteria and access.

The goal, for USDA, is to get rid of what they see as enrollment obstacles and increase access among potentially eligible populations by working with arms of the Mexican government in America. Benefits are not guaranteed or provided under the program — the purpose is outreach and education.

    No Joke: Obama Admin Partners With Mexican Government To Boost Food Stamp Rolls…

    OBOZO campaign – using our tax money to buy votes (fraudulent or otherwise) from every slug, slacker, deadbeat, liar, freeloader, loser, taxpayer-leech, cheat, ILLEGAL and pothead in the country.

  • snap boy

    If immigrants can’t support themselves here, they should return to their home country. We cannot afford to feed, educate and medicate our own.

  • anti-bho

    This dude is getting awfully free with our funds.
    Worst drought in thirty years resulting in reduced harvests of corn and soybeans which is driving grocery prices up and he finds more folks to give a free ride.

  • Economan

    Why is our tax money supporting dead-beats from another country? Mexico should take care of its own like any other country. This is nothing but insanity!

  • bigkahuna

    If Romney and GOP dont pounce on the following to show he is determined to create a welfare state they are crazy.

    1. Foodstamp radio and tv campaigns here and in MEXICO FOR GODS SAKE

    2. Illegally giving amnesty to illegal aliens by a stroke of the kings pen

    3. Eliminating work requirements for welfare that cut welfare rolls by 50-60%

    4. 10’s of billions given to green energy cronies who went bankrupt or OUTSOURCED JOBS

    5. Took over Student loans

    6. Allows chpoice in killing baby but I cant choose not to buy health insurance

    7. reduces drilling permits offshore, on federal lands, and in Alaska

    8. Kills Keystone pipelines and its thousands of jobs and oil security.

    9. Demonizing success, rewarding failure.

    2004. I guess on this we can blame Bush. He was a RINO but he loved his country and understood how the private sector worked, but, he too, had a nanny-state mentality.

    [Throughout his presidency, Obama has spent an average of 138 minutes a week in economic meetings. For comparison, consider that dog owners spend an average of 130 minutes a week walking their dogs..]
    meanwhile in ma. the lil’ lady will be visiting the patrick estate…….

    I guess this has just about pushed me over the edge. Every single day I say to myself it just can’t get any more bizarre, but then here comes this story. As a small business owner in Texas, in the decorative painting business, I have seen our profits totally disappear because I can no longer “compete” with illegal painters – people that should not even be in this country anyway – not only have they taken our jobs, depressed the wages that I can collect, I have to pay their families welfare and give tax money for food stamps – tax money that I have to pay and they don’t – and I won’t hire illegals – it is against the law last time I checked. I call, write, protest, but to no avail. I called Senator Hutchinson’s office a couple of years ago and they suggested I might need to find another line of work!! My son is a border patrol agent and they do the best they can, but you and I know that we live in a country whose government is not serious about closing our borders. If they were, they would be closed tomorrow.

    just another part of the colonization program of leftist america. yes we need these people in america say the american politicans. more people to put on the dole to buy their votes, another excuse to confiscate the income of american workers income.

    “the power to tax is the power to tyrannize.”

  • jony101

    I always knew mexicans where lazy, looking for the free ride. What able-body man would accept foodstamps? one with no honor.
    Mexicans always like to talk how the US stole texas, california but they lost the war, no one stole anything. The mexicans in texas join forces with the american immigrants and fought the mexican army. Texas and california became 1st world states while mexico 100 years later is still a 3rd world failed state.
    Mexico has a double standard they dont want the US to interfere in its internal affairs but now they are interfering in our affairs.

    SI SE PUEDE !!!!

    As more Americans buy Ramen Noodles to live on but see food stamp cards being used to buy nice expensive meat, and by Mexican nationals no less, their distrust and out and out hatred for their Government will surge even higher if that is possible. Really, now Obama is simply spitting in our eyes and TAKING our money to give to non-citizens in exchange for their illegal votes. It’s time for some big time ballot box retaliation.

  • donh

    Still eating Ramen noodles after all these years ?…and soon they will be priced over $1.00 a pack.

    Letting millions of people make a free for all run on the grocery store drives up the prices on good hard working Americans who BUY their food with real hard earned cash. You do it the right way but can only afford canned tuna..while the takers eat jumbo shrimp .

  • bigkahuna

    Today Obama said:

    We dont expect handouts…. we do however expect rrewards for our hard work….

    The guy is insane… Eliminates work requirements for welfare…. Places ads on the radio and even in Mexico for illegals to get foodstamps, Gives amnesty (illegally) to illegals.

    He then wants to punish the so called rich for making too much and giving more to the parasites who leech off the taxpayers..

  • Fuquay Steve

    Hey – who do you expect him to partner with? Canada? Wait, they are richer than us.

    Obama continues to try to make the US a Food Stamp nation:

    {…] While spending on the food stamp program has increased 100 percent under President Barack Obama, the government continues to push more Americans to enroll in the welfare program.

    The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has embraced entire promotional campaigns designed to encourage eligible Americans to participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.

    A pamphlet currently posted at the USDA website encourages local SNAP offices to throw parties as one way to get potentially eligible seniors to enroll in the program.

    “Throw a Great Party. Host social events where people mix and mingle,” the agency advises. “Make it fun by having activities, games, food, and entertainment, and provide information about SNAP. Putting SNAP information in a game format like BINGO, crossword puzzles, or even a ‘true/false’ quiz is fun and helps get your message across in a memorable way.”

    The agency’s most recent outreach effort targets California, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio and the New York metro area with radio ads.{……}
