USDA Approves SNAP Program That Allows Illegal Immigrants From Mexico To Receive Food Stamps

Judicial Watch today released documents detailing how the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is working with the Mexican government to promote participation by illegal aliens in the U.S. food stamp program.

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. 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 documents came in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made to USDA on July 20, 2012. The FOIA request sought:“Any and all records of communication relating to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals, and migrant communities, including but not limited to, communications with the Mexican government.”

The documents obtained by Judicial Watch show that USDA officials are working closely with their counterparts at the Mexican Embassy to widely broaden the SNAP program in the Mexican immigrant community, with no effort to restrict aid to, identify, or apprehend illegal immigrants who may be on the food stamp rolls. In an email to Borjon Lopez-Coterilla and Jose Vincente of the Mexican Embassy, dated January 26, 2012, Yibo Wood of the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) sympathized with the plight of illegal aliens applying for food stamps, saying,“FNS understands that mixed status households may be particularly vulnerable. Many of these households contain a non-citizen parent and a citizen child.”

As far back as 2006, in its Corruption Chronicles blog, Judicial Watch revealed that the USDA was spending taxpayer money to run Spanish-language television ads encouraging illegal immigrants to apply for government-financed food stamps. The Mexican Consul in Santa Ana, CA, 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.”

In 2012, Judicial Watch reported that in a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions questioned the Obama administration’s partnership with Mexican consulates to encourage foreign nationals, migrant workers and non-citizen immigrants to apply for food stamps and other USDA administered welfare benefits.“It defies rational thinking,” Sessions wrote,“for the United States — now dangerously $16 trillion in debt — to partner with foreign governments to help us place more foreign nationals on American welfare and it is contrary to good immigration policy in the United States.”

“The revelation that the USDA is actively working with the Mexican government to promote food stamps for illegal aliens should have a direct impact on the fate of the immigration bill now being debated in Congress,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.“These disclosures further confirm the fact that the Obama administration cannot be trusted to protect our borders or enforce our immigration laws. And the coordination with a foreign government to attack the policies of an American state is contemptible.”

Maybe it's a trap to get them into the food stamp office so they can be caught and deported.

Ah, but those gringos aren't as hard-working as the Mexicans...

And it isn't “giving away” anything from the USA, since the food stamps will be spent in stores in the USA.

Why do you assume that the presence of more Mexicans means nastiness for blacks? Think about how that sounds. It sounds like a white supremacist talking about the presence of blacks, frankly.

Are there other groups about whom you feel similarly? Jews? Asians? Whites? This is a dangerous attitude.

This is proof positive that illegal immigration is not only condoned by the government but actually encouraged. Mexicans, whether legal or illegal are a fast rising force to be reckoned with in this country whether people like it or not. They are here and steadily coming here by the millions. This is no doubt by design to satisfy the government agenda of using mexicans to run blacks out or at least isolate them away from hispanic and white areas of the country because it's cheaper than using the military. In essence, mexicans are being brought in as mercenaries against blacks and it appears to be working. LMAO!!

Immigration reform, it is hoped, will do that... give them a path to legalization. It isn't the immigrants who must be encouraged... they don't want to be illegal. It is the govt which keeps them that way, since that is what corporations want.

Yes, I say they should all be given citizenship immediately. They've worked for it and deserve it.
