USDA Partners With Mexico To Boost Food Stamps

From the Daily Caller:

USDA partnering with Mexico to boost food stamp participation

By Caroline May | Thursday, July 19, 2012

The Mexican government has been working with the United States Department of Agriculture to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.

USDA has an agreement with Mexico to promote American food assistance programs, including food stamps, among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.

“USDA and the government of Mexico have entered into a partnership to help educate eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States about available nutrition assistance,” the USDA explains in a brief paragraph on their “Reaching Low-Income Hispanics With Nutrition Assistance” web page. “Mexico will help disseminate this information through its embassy and network of approximately 50 consular offices.”

Isn’t that heartwarming? It’s almost as if the government is afraid illegal aliens won’t hear about our amazing generosity and they might even go back home.

The goal, for USDA, is to get rid of what they see as enrollment obstacles and increase access among potentially eligible populations by working with arms of the Mexican government in America…

Some of the materials the USDA encourages the Mexican government to use to educate and promote the benefit programs are available free online for order and download. A partial list of materials include English and Spanish brochures titled “Five Easy Steps To Snap Benefits,” “How To Get Food Help — A Consumer’s Guide to FNCS Programs,” “Ending Hunger Improving Nutrition Combating Obesity,” and posters with slogans like “Food Stamps Make America Stronger.”

When asked for details and to elaborate on the program, USDA stressed it was established in 2004 and not meant for illegal immigrants.

“The partnership with the Mexican embassy was established in 2004,” a USDA spokesman wrote The Daily Caller in an email. “USDA does not perform outreach to immigrants that are undocumented, and therefore not eligible for SNAP.” …

In other words they are saying that it is Bush’s fault. — But why hasn’t it been ended?

And how do they know who is here legally or not? They can’t ask for photo IDs. That would be racist.

Besides, you can bet the 36 year old and younger children that Obama has just given amnesty to will be eligible.

Mexico is the only country with which USDA has a nutrition assistance outreach partnership agreement.

Gee, we wonder why that is?

By the way, the Daily Caller is also reporting that the USDA has removed those Spanish food stamp ‘soap opera’ ads from their website.

At least until after the elections.

    Even more outrageous than food stamps in a foreign country,
    “… get rid of what they see as enrollment obstacles and increase access among potentially eligible populations by working with arms of the Mexican government in America…

    Why is there an arm of the Mexican GOVERNMENT in America? Just the way this is presented makes me sick. As if there is nothing wrong with a foreign government having this kind of power within our borders.

    We could probably solve this problem by letting them try to take back Texas, which many Mexicans believe is still their property. I’m sure the that the newly reformed Republic of Texas would ensure that the Mexicans had a hell of a time getting into the US through them.
