Our Tax Dollars At Work

food stampsWorld Net Daily reports on the findings of Judicial Watch with regard to the federal government promoting tax-payer-funded benefits to potential illegal aliens foreigners.

To wit:

Judicial Watch, the Washington watchdog which is known for tracking down and trying to stamp out government corruption, has issued a report revealing that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is working with the Mexican government to promote the U.S. food stamp program to illegal aliens.

The report said the program, called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, features a Spanish-language flyer supplied to the Mexican Embassy by the USDA “with a statement advising Mexicans in the U.S. that they do not need to declare their immigration status in order to receive financial assistance.”

As if we don’t already have enough trouble with illegal immigration and the ‘budget’ federal spending!

The report continues…

… that taxpayer money was used to run Spanish-language television ads “encouraging illegal immigrants to apply for government-financed food stamps. The Mexican Consul in Santa Ana, Calif., at the time even starred in some of the U.S. government-financed television commercials, which explained the program and provided a phone number to apply. In the widely viewed commercial the consul assured that receiving food stamps ‘won’t affect your immigration status.’”

We’re already broke.  WTF?

  1. But it’s not their money so it’s alright to keep spending it.
