Keeping America Safe: Homeland Security Is Promoting Welfare to New Immigrants

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

The Obama Administration met with Mexican officials thirty times to promote US food stamp program for illegal immigrants.

And there’s this…
Homeland Security is promoting welfare to to new US immigrants.
The Daily Caller reported:

Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your new country can do for you.

“Welcome to USA.gov,” a website maintained by the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), bills itself as the “primary gateway for new immigrants to find basic information on how to settle in the United States” — featuring a prominent section for new immigrants about how to access government benefits.

“Depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs,” the Web page reads.

“Government assistance programs can be critically important to the well-being of some immigrants and their families. Frequently, however, there is a lack of information about how to access such benefits. Benefit programs can be complicated and you may be given misleading information about how they operate.”

The DHS page offers links to government websites that explain how to access benefits including food stamps, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, Medicare, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and the “official website with information on all available federal benefit programs,” with a nonworking link to Benefits.gov.

    Whatever happened to the days when new immigrants to the US had to have a sponsor and demonstrate that they had a job or the jobs skills to insure that they would not become a public charge?

  • Bigkahuna

    We need to start making these things more public and if they ever pass a budget force them to take the money from other programs they love to pit one against another

  • Granny

    Why lookie-see! The laws have NOT changed. Most legal immigrants still require a sponsor and still cannot utilize means-tested benefits without having to pay them back. (Food Stamps are means-tested.)

    Why are illegal aliens getting benefits prohibited to those who wait in line, pay the fees and do what is required to immigrate legally?

    The following statement, or variations thereof, is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson:
    “A government big enough to give you everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have….” what could possibly go wrong with the government controlling the very things you need to exist?

    When we went to apply for our Social Security a couple of years ago we were the only ones in the office besides the “help” that spoke English. The rest were new immigrants there with their interpreters. Clearly they had just arrived in our country and they were getting free benefits. It was pretty disgusting.

    Please keep in mind that many families that are of immigrants DO NOT seek public assistance nor wish for any help as becoming an American is all the start they need. I know this and as the wife of a first generation American of parents from Mexico…that my husband is American. He has created far more than his parents dreamed when they moved to US in 1967. In fact, my husband served honorably in the US Army, and my oldest son serves now and will be deploying for his second tour in Afghanistan in January.

    We never would consider taking foodstamps or ANY thing else. If you could only see America through my family’s eyes. May we unite in getting America back to the nation that the world flocks to as it truly is a beacon.

    Oh and tomorrow morning, my third son will be taking the ASVAB, as it seems like he too has a strong desire to be one of the true 1%er’s.

    In my family there are NO hyphenated Americans. We are simply Americans.

    JOE BLOW, you’re right on target. When I reached age 65 and went to sign up for SS payments the office was filled with young “foreigners” and I was the only “old person” in the office. My wait was long as the SS personnel were giving all their time assisting those who could not speak “English”, which was everyone except me. By the time the SS people got to me, an old whitey, they were hostile and short tempered.

    Obamas America stinks.

    is there any wonder under this clown that we are in worse shape than greece?

  • Welldoneson

    “Some immigrants and their families”?
    That’s a propaganda flag… what I mean is, how is it possible that the “immigrant” would get benefits, but NOT his family? Are his family not also immigrants? The left never miss an opportunity to mention “family”(TM), and the hard left long ago took over the administration of the bureaucracy.

    Well that’s the way to welcome new people and encourage them to become hard working contributing members of society — tell them all the free crap they can have if they do the opposite.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Well, at the very least, it does say “Depending on your immigration status,…”.

    Of course, anyone with half a brain knows that it’s only ass-covering phraseology.

    the left bringing their colonizers to the united states by telling them they can live off the sweat of the american workers brow. lets raise those taxes we have a budget deficit.

    we have been turned into slaves by the people who are supposed to be our servants. this what happens when you let holding public office become an occupation instead if a service.

    The food stamps for illegal alien mexican’s,was originally started by George W.Bush in a secret agreement with the mexican government. Bush also wanted to make them eleigible for Social Security,then the Bleep hit the fan on that and W had to drop it. Both the repub and democrat establishment are of the left and are deliberately trying to overload our system,in order to crash it so they can Enslave us in a “New World Order,One World Government”.
