With food stamp spending in the United States skyrocketing since the beginning of the recession, the Department of Agriculture is paying to promote food stamp usage to illegal immigrants for the sake of their American children, according to documents obtained by a government watchdog.

“The promotion of the food stamp program, now known as “SNAP” (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), includes a Spanish-language flyer provided 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,” Judicial Watch announced today. “Emphasized in bold and underlined, the statement reads, ‘You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.’”

The USDA said the program is designed to help American children. “[The USDA Food and Nutrition Service] understands that mixed status households may be particularly vulnerable,” FNS’ Yibo Wood wrote to Mexican embassy officials in a January 2012 email. “Many of these households contain a non-citizen parent and a citizen child.”

    The only government assistance illegal aliens should receive is a trip back to their own country and that country should be billed for the expense. This administration's attempts to pander to those they hope will be future voters are despicable and call into question whwther ANY of its members deserve to be called Americans. Democrats pander to the undeserving like $2 whores trolling for drunken sailors on a Saturday night.

    That's where our tax money goes? We are expected to now pay for food stamps for non citizens who have never contributed into the system? Health care and housing weren't enough? These bastards are taking it to a whole new level. The gimme culture just keeps growing! If we can't rid ourselves of this growing idea that the government will provide everything to everyone we are screwed. But those type will keep voting the way they did in these past two elections because they know they can continue to leach off of the working man/woman. Gimme! Gimme! Makes me sick!

    Illegal immigrants should not be receiving government assistance due to the fact they are here ILLEGALLY. US citizens cant sneak into Mexico and get food stamps from the Mexican government, but they would get what those coming here illegally should get here..JAIL,not food stamps.
    Babies of illegal immigrants should not automatically receive citizenship through birth. Immigrants children should only have citizenship through birth if the parents are LEGAL immigrants.

    Not unless the Mexican government pays us for them, with interest.
    I don't think they should be getting medical care, housing, food stamps, free education, etc. Coming here to work is one thing, and I can accept that - as long as the entire family doesn't come. We just continue to reward the law-breakers, they won't stop breaking the law.

    That is why they come here from impoverished Mexico in the first place. They get free, food, have there babies for free and get government subsidized housing. Hell, maybe I should cross the border, get my Mexican citizenship and then return as an illegal immigrant and get the "free stuff" as well.

    No immigrant to the U.S. should be receiving government assistance until after they've become a citizen and met other strict criteria. Deadbeats shouldn't be allowed in, we've got more than enough already.

    If Illegal Aliens/Foreign Invaders want government assistance they can get it from the country they came from. As an American tax payer I have no obligation or desire to support someone who shouldn't be here.
