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.

    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.

  • crackermike

    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..

    AMERICA IS DYING UNDER OBAMA

    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.{……}

    Buzzfeed Wrong on Romney’s Bain Timeline During Olympics

    Buzzfeed Wrong on Romney’s Bain Timeline During Olympics
    Buzzfeed published a document and a brief video clip to suggest that Romney was still CEO of Bain Capital after 1999. Here’s the description that goes with the article:

    Mitt Romney has spent much of the last week arguing that, despite some public records, he was effectively gone from Bain Capital in February 1999. But in February 2000, Romney was introduced as the “founder and CEO of Capital” at the National Press Club during an appearance about the Olympics, and Romney’s biography on the Olympic’s website listed him as Bain Capital “founder and CEO.”

    Let’s take these in reverse order. The biography of Romney which Buzzfeed pulled from the 2001 version of the Olympic Games website is not from 2001. It’s a press release published in February of 1999. A full color version of the same text was published in the official Olympics magazine the same month. Notice that all three versions state “Romney, 51, is the son of the late George Romney.” But Romney wasn’t 51 in 2001, nor in 2000 for that matter. In fact, he turned 52 on March 12, 1999. So this document was clearly written before that time. The fact that Romney’s online bio was never updated doesn’t prove anything.

    The Bush family is totally involved in the destruction of American sovereignty anf th formation of the NAU. G.W. Bush made all the final agreements in his meetings with Vincente Fox.
    The invasion is all part of the plan. Once enough mexicans invaders are here all they will have to do is agree to the merger and the government will pass it off as the democratic thing to do.
    Jeb Bush’s sons will take high level positions in the NAU because they are half mexican and dual citizens from their mother Columba.

  • Imagine the sales pitch here. “Hey Amigos, you can get free stuff just like all the project dwellers and white trash because we see all of you in the same light! Besides we need your votes in November! Adios for now!”

    Jeezzz… unlike many white trash and project dwellers, there are a good number of Hispanics who have very, very proud people. Now I’ll admit the second and third generation of Hispanics may buy into the Americanized version of free stuff. But first generation working people will find this insulting.

    Many came from big government nations beating them down. Being given free stuff if you behave a certain way is just as distasteful.

    We’ll see. But at least Obama is obvious, he is trying to nationalize the “Chicago way”.

    I hope he fails.

  • Sasja

    This all started in 2002 when Bush signed the farm bill which included dropping the requirement that only US citizens were eligible for the food stamp program. It has been downhill ever since.

  • Sasja

    The government has apparently relaxed their requirement for someone to prove they’re truly disabled to receive disability payments. Have you run out of unemployment checks? Just hop on over to your local SS office and sign up for free disability payments. Don’t bother looking for any type of work. Better yet, you can still work part-time and receive a gubmint check to boot. (I just threw that in but it would not surprise me to learn it is allowed).

    Give me a break. Do you folks care about the truth or just drool over any chance to bash the Marxist in Chief?

    This is a GOP program first passed in 2002 by REPUBLICANS. It was pumped up even more in 2004 by GW and his USDA secretary.

    At least Obama has an excuse, he’s a commie and he’s facing high unemployment. Food Stamp spending DOUBLED under the GOP leadership of George Bush and his Republican Congress while unemployment was DROPPING.

    There is NO Conservative Party. You can chose a 3rd World Communist tyrant or a GOP socialist technocrat. Think I’m wrong? Look up the vote authorizing the Drones. Virtually unanimous. No one with any political clout gives a damn about individual liberty.

  • Limousine Barry

    If you are an illegal immigrant with a thriving weed business you did not succeed on your own! Someone else helped! That was the government supplying food stamps!

    Your business succeeded because you trade the food stamps for cash to buy more weed. The cycle continues. You are soon dependent on the government… and you should vote for me!

    If you are an illegal immigrant who made a lot of money selling coke you did not succeed on your own! Someone else helped. It was Eric Holder’s Guns 4 Mexican Gangs program that made you succeed… in killing most of your competitors… and a boarder agent.

    Soon you realize how dependent you are on the 0bama Administration for guns and power! So you must vote for me!

    If you like the way I hand out the Taxpayer’s money for Food Stamps and Guns then vote for me. Send $3.00 to me before midnight. You will get a free pre-fill-in Absentee ballot!

    My pig of a campaign bus is burning oil and David Axelrod has a new scam for my California voters. It involves the old Discounted Food Stamp Trading Scam.

    California donors can buy three food stamps and get one absentee ballot for free! I cannot to into details at this time. Besides, who cares if I screw my California Donors? They always vote for me! I say take their money and let their homes go into foreclosure! Good day.

    “Both the Spanish-language ad campaign and the U.S.-Mexico partnership were launched under the George W. Bush administration.” (in 2004)

  • infadelicious

    we are in 2014, idioto, obama has put his lightly loafered foot on the accelerator of this and other freebie programs…

  • Kibber_SF

    I am not saying that it didn’t get accelerated but I also know who started it. Maybe if Bush wouldn’t have started it Obama would not have the opportunity to increase the use of the program. I don’t think Congress would pass this for Obama but having it in place makes it more difficult for them to “limit” the program.
    “The partnership — which was signed by former USDA Secretary Ann M. Veneman and Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Ernesto Derbez Bautista in 2004”
    Right out of the article..What a moron…
    More BS from BOTH of the “great two (faced) parties”

  • infadelicious

    yes, ok. I am glad we agree on one thing. ONce you give someone entitlements, it is d*amn hard to take it away or limit it, BUT we are out of money and someone, maybe obama is not the right man and doesn’t have the cajones to do it, but someone has to start limiting it or cutting it off for some people. We will always need a safety net for those who cannot work or take care of themselves, ALWAYS, but seriously , able-bodied people who have had no employment for 5 yrs have had time to get some kind of job and/or grabbed some skills. I haven’t been out of work since I was 14. I had many minimum wage jobs and paid for my own education. I presently have one part time job , one full time job and own a part time business and I also cook 90% of my meals at home. Entitlements suck the ambition out of the able bodied person. Both parties pander to groups of people encouraging them to exchange their dignity, ambition and votes for mere crumbs, .. it’s sad.

  • Kibber_SF

    Benefits are handouts, charity, money for nothing; entittlements are something usually paid into by you or your employer and you are “entittled” to get them. I have always been against long term benefits since they encourage laziness. I ahve also worked since I was 14 and have held several jobs at once. I believe the first thing we need to address, which will never be done, is take away the “anchor baby” genre. There needs to be limits on how long you can get benefits also. Unemployement used to only last 6 months and that was it, now you can get it for 2 years. There are jobs out there and if someone needs to work two then so be it. Need food? Work…

  • infadelicious

    I agree Minimum wage jobs are everywhere, but i find most people today cannot believe that you would tell them they may have to start at the bottom even though they have done nothing to earn a higher paying job. . If you want to earn more you have to grab some skills, work harder and/or provide a service or product that people will pay more for. I miss the first job i had at age 14, the Dairy Queen. minimum wage and all the hot fudge sundaes and chili cheese dogs you could eat. 😉 Suh-weet!!!

  • Kibber_SF

    I worked for a company for 13 years and they went out of business. I went to another company and had to start with less money but I did it and made budget modications (wouldn’t it be nice if the gov did that) so I could eat. Time wnet by and I left and started my own business. First two years were potatoes and cheese but I made it and am well set up for the rest of my life. This was taught to me by my parents and this is one thing that is not taught to kids anymore and we wonder why our country is in such a sad state.
