In the Daily Mail, this article leaps off the page:
A Spanish-language leaflet that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has provided to the Mexican Embassy in Washington advises border-crossing Mexicans that they can collect taxpayer-funded food stamp benefits for their children without admitting that they’re illegal immigrants.
Underlined and in boldface type, the document tells immigrants who are unlawfully in the United States that, ‘You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.’
The USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, is funded in order to prevent hunger by helping poor families maintain a basic level of nutrition for both adults and children.
While this may not seem like much to some people, it means that an estimated 15 to 20 million Mexican citizens are living in America, paying no taxes, sending money back to Mexico and claiming their children – most of whom live in Mexico with grandparents – as dependents so they can receive the maximum amount of food stamps allowed under the law.
Who pays for this food? American citizens, who can’t receive food stamps because they make $25 dollars a month too much to qualify, pay for the food stamps.
So, let’s break this down. An American family, where the mother and father both work, but earn just a little over minimum wage, don’t qualify for food stamps. They need help providing for their two children because their wages aren’t enough to pay rent, auto insurance, utilities, clothes for the children, gas for the car and buy food. However, their taxes pay for a family living in America illegally. A man and woman with two children living in America, with six more children living in Mexico, receives food stamps for eight children and themselves. These food stamps were paid for by the young couple with two children, who are American citizens.
I believe in helping your fellow man. I don’t believe Americans should be paying to feed Mexicans while the Americans go without food and struggle to keep a roof over their heads. The Mexicans are working, don’t have to pay taxes, send money to Mexico and will retire to Mexico where American dollars will stretch further.
Mexicans are pulling a scam with the help of the American government. Americans need to stand up and scream, “This is bullshit and I am not playing this game anymore.” Our government steals our money and spends it however it deems fit. We are crazy for allowing this to happen now that we have become aware.
Nobody wants to talk about the fact that there will soon be more freeloaders than there are workers to support them. Americans have become so burdened with the debt of others that they are just before collapsing. One wonders, ” Will the rats hang on until the last American is dead, or will they jump ship and go home to Mexico?”
