Obama Administration to Illegal Aliens: Don’t Worry, Food Stamps Won’t Affect Citizenship Chances
We already knew the Obama Administration was using a Spanish soap opera format to push food stamps on illegal immigrants and Spanish-speaking Americans:
In fact, the Obama Administration met with Mexican officials thirty times to promote US food stamp program for illegal immigrants.
The Obama Administration is working to dispel immigrants’ concerns that getting on food stamps will harm their chances of becoming U.S. citizens.
The Daily Caller reported:
The United States Department of Agriculture has been working to dispel immigrants’ concerns that getting on food stamps will harm their chances of becoming U.S. citizens.
The USDA addresses those fears in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamp, brochures it distributes to Mexican consulates as part of its “partnership” with the Mexican government “to help educate eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States about available nutrition assistance.”
In one portion of the brochure, USDA’s text asks, “If I get on SNAP benefits, will I be a “public charge?’” The brochure then answers: “No. You and your family can apply for and receive SNAP benefits without hurting your chance of becoming U.S. citizens.”
The brochure further advises immigrants that members of their family could qualify for food stamps, even if they don’t.
“If you are not eligible due to your immigration status, your legal immigrant or citizen children may still qualify,” the brochure reads. ”You do not have to provide immigration information about yourself when you apply for your legal immigrant or citizen children.”
