Mexico tells “Freeloading” Immigrants not to worry; Barack Obama says, Food Stamps & Being on Welfare Won’t affect their U.S. Citizenship Chances!
I told you folks! Freeloading immigrants becoming an insurmountable possibly, trillion dollars problem on our safety net's future.
I am a service connected vet, waiting over a year and a half for my disability pension that NEVER comes, and we've got over 700,000 disabled veterans waiting for theirs, just because of lack of money.

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.”
Legal immigrants may obtain SNAP benefits after a five-year wait. Children under 18, refugees, asylees, and some disabled and elderly do not have to wait, as the pamphlet notes.
The brochure, obtained by The Daily Caller, was part of a packet the USDA offered in response to a July inquiry about the USDA/Mexico partnership from Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee. The packet contained materials the agency gives Mexican consulates to distribute to Mexican-Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.
“The Mexico-U.S. Partnership for Nutrition Assistance Initiative is just one of a wide range of USDA partnership activities intended to promote awareness of nutrition assistance among those who need benefits and meet all program requirements under current law.” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack wrote in a response letter to Sessions’ inquiries last fall.
An analysis of March 2011 Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey data by Steven Camarota, director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies, revealed that heads of households born in Mexico are the most likely nationality to be on some form of food assistance, with 45.3 percent reporting use of food assistance.”
