Outrage’ over fed EBT push for aliens

lawmakers are fuming over an Obama administration policy promoting welfare and EBT benefits for immigrants, with a “welcome” package and promotional website that encourage new arrivals to take advantage of the nation’s generous government largesse


The fight over welfare for recent immigrants is unfolding in Washington, where a group of GOP senators has sent a letter to U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Thomas Vilsack demanding answers as to why food stamps and other welfare benefits are being promoted to new immigrants. The agency’s Welcome toUSA.gov website includes a comprehensive handbook directing immigrants on how to obtain food stamps, Medicare, disability and other taxpayer-funded aid.

“The federal government now is giving packets to people when they come to the United States ... that promote welfare benefits,” said U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions


And we wonder why entitlement costs are skyrocketing and we are sailing head first off the fiscal cliff.

This is nothing more than the Libs buying vote power on a worldwide scale!

Most other countries in the world, you have to prove you add VALUE to the country to gain citizenship. You have to have a job, have an education, have to have money saved up.

Not in America, we will just add you to the ticket.

There's going to be a rude awakening when everyone figures out that we actually can run out of money

The fact that this is even an issue is pathetic.

"Outrage". What utter bullshit. There was an opportunity for "outrage" two weeks ago and those who oppose such blatant lawlessness blew it. Now, I won't pay any more attention to the word "outrage" than I do to "racist". Both are hollow and overused. When there is blood running in the streets and SS firing on masses of armed, rioting citizens, then I'll believe there is "outrage".

I'm pretty sure I had to swear an affidavit that I wouldn't take any kind of benefits for 5 years as a condition for my immigrant visa

This is exactly why those cocksuckers don't want any photo ID requirement to vote.

Yes it is the law,

Title IV of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity
Reconciliation Act of 1996 has made it difficult for legal permanent
residents in the United States to live as wards of the state. The law,
also known as the 1996 Welfare Reform Act, states that “selfsufficiency
has been a basic principle of United States immigration
law.”


So really, Immigrants on welfare could, and should be grounds for deportation.

Not only promoting it to immigrants, they are also promoting it to druggies and alcoholics.

My 54 year old brother in law who lives in his mom's basement and has a paper route for a job went to the county hospital to see if he could get false teeth because quite a few of his teeth have fallen out from doing meth and what do they do? Not only do they give him teeth but they sign him up for public assistance and now he gets a EBT card with $200 a month on it which he gives to his mom to buy groceries with.
