Report: Illegal Immigrants Get More Food Stamp Benefits Than Poor American Citizens: “$2 Billion A Year”

Do you LOVE America?



    There’s a reason Americans are angered over illegal immigration and despite what liberal-leaning socialists like Hillary Clinton and the Huffington Post may suggest, it has absolutely nothing to do with racism.

    It’s an economics issue, plain and simple.

    And as highlighted by a new report from the Washington Examiner, it’s actually American citizens who are feeling the brunt of the pain and being treated unfairly, not the other way around:

    Illegal immigrant households tapping into the federal food stamp program are receiving $1.4 billion to $2.1 billion a year despite their ineligibility, according to a new analysis of the Agriculture Department program.

    And rules guiding who can get food stamps favor households with illegal immigrants over all-U.S. citizen homes, according to the detailed report from the Center for Immigration Studies released Monday morning.

    David North of explain how the scam works:

    Let’s say that the all-citizen family consisted of three people, employed father, stay-at-home mother, and a small child. Dad makes $2,400 a month. The family’s income is too high for food stamps since the maximum monthly income is $2,177 for a family of three.

    Then next door there is a mixed family, also three people, with the father being the only worker, also earning $2,400 a month. The difference is that the father is an ineligible alien and so, under many states’ regulations, one-third of the family’s income is ignored (prorated is the word in SNAP circles), leaving the family with a nominal income of $1,600 a month that allows the family to get a food stamps allotment, but only for the two citizens, not for all three in the family.

    There is thus a band of households of three with earnings in the range of $2,177/mo. at the bottom to $2,589/mo. at the top that would be eligible for food stamps but only if the wage earner is a non-eligible alien in the eyes of USDA; all-citizen households in this band would not be eligible for food stamps. (Here’s the math: $2,589 = 150 percent of $1,726, the maximum income allowable for a family of two when there is a 33.3 percent discount on the illegal’s wages).

    That $2 billion a year in free food offered to people who shouldn’t be in this country in the first place is only part of it.

    An already overburdened American taxpayer is also forced, by way of the gun, to pay for illegal immigrants’ health care, college tuition, and other social services.

    But if you argue against illegal immigration or the “free” services they consume you are a racist.

    We’d argue you’re a realist, especially if you understand that all of these free services only work until the government runs out of other peoples’ money.

      1. They won’t keep it for long , Obama going to declare Martial Laws, by shutting down the food stamp machines and the people will start robbing and killing..

        But do not lose hop cause God is in control
        Remember Mursi thought he would stay in office also.. But he did not

        The People are in fear that are in the government offices

        • Instead of whining about illegals, just go to your local social services agency and claim that you are a refugee from Guatemala in need of financial assistance.

          Then go to another social services agency in the next county and say that you are a US citizen in need of general assistance, subsidized housing, welfare, food stamps, etc.

          After that, apply to a 20-hour part time job using fake documents.

          Easy money baby!

        • After reading this you are going to feel pretty silly.

          Here in the USA there is no such thing as “martial law” or “emergency powers”. When someone who serves within our government calls for either one or both they are just openly declaring their TREASON. When someone enforces “martial law” or “emergency powers” they are *Terrorists and Traitors. It is the exact opposite of our legitimate government and if YOU and others would bother to read that very short document you would discover exactly what it is that those who serve within our governments are under contract to, and also Oathbound to follow. That’s kind of important to know.

          It would also be nice if you would bother to read your state’s Constitution as it is the contract that those that serve within your state are also under, along with the US Constitution and they are also Oathbound to both.

          *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

          • So what did people do before the welfare system was created? That’s where we need to go back to and begin again. Too many people get on the dole and have no intention on getting off. It’s a lifestyle for way too many. Now the government is basically telling us, Mr.&Mrs Joe Taxpayer, you are going to go to work everyday and not only fund your own legal lazy people, but the ILLEGALS as well. Last time I checked it was illegal to help someone commit a crime. It’s called aiding and abetting. But yet that’s exactly what this government is doing and telling the tax PAYER that we are required to provide the funding. It simply needs to stop and the money being used to fund these programs be returned to the people who deserve it. Of all the despair that people endured during the depression, I have yet to read anything at all about rampant starvation and its death toll. That’s because, despite how bad things were, Americans took care of each other. I’ve seen pictures of soup lines that were occupied by hundreds, including blacks right in there with whites, and they got fed. FF to today and we have kids that can hack sophisticated computer security but couldn’t fix a grilled cheese samitz for themselves. What’s wrong with this picture? There’s a change that’s coming. It’s gonna be nasty and harsh, but beyond anything, it’s necessary.
            Stay quiet Be smart. You’ll be glad you did.

            • we went HUNGRY!!! Dad died of heart attack – no insurance – we went on social security which paid the rent and not much else. mother worked in slave factory to provide basics – when she applied for help, was denied since she HAD A JOB! People today are lazy, slovenly and greedy. Work????? No way. I cleaned houses, took out garbage, babysat to GET MONEY FOR FOOD – only 14 years old! Disgusting the giveaways which I am still paying for when we starved BUT SURVIVED.

          • after reading this you will feel foolish as well.
            Here in the USA, there are no such things as gun control laws, because the second amendment forbids it.
            yet the laws do exist and have many ignorant supporters.
            martial law may not be legal, but that never stopped a determined enemy of the state; (ie: a liberal U.S. legislator).
            martial law can happen if the elites desire it.

          • 28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives

            That pretty much labels IRS agents as terrorists then.

      2. The proper term is scum illegal.

        • Menzo means “dumbass” in the Mexican slang

          Menzo’s parents most likely crossed the border illegally and he is just another anchor baby.

          So please “dumbass,” stop trashing your own people.

          • I can always bait up an assclown scum illegal troll defending his brown buddies.

            • Plus we are not in the rat hole you call mexico

              • Living in self-denial is not going to erase the fact that your “rodent” parents came from Mexico and that you are just a stupid dumbass.

                So “pinchi buey” stop ridiculing yourself.

              • Menzo, Illian sounds like another troll. I’ll get HCKS after him. LOL!

      3. It’s coming to an end.and I personally don’t care if they are under 18 f u if you don’t like it.

      4. How many of us will not shoot a brown face. Don’t get a tan man. It’s almost party time.

      5. #1 an illegal can’t legally be working in todays America.
        Easy fix, halt all immigration, of anybody, now! Jail persons, business owners and corporate officers of any business hiring illegals. If the illegals have forged documents, tough, that is your problem. Confiscate the assets of any person, business, and corporate officers employing illegals.
        In order to be humane, after cutting off all social services to illegals, they can get all those services at all those supposed FEMA camps some believe to exist. Give everyone that wants to leave, $100, 100 rolls of toilet paper, and a free ride to the Socialists worker paradise of Venezuela.

        • Rellik, same here. Minority groups, including illegals, always get special treatment under federal law and white people can’t get a damn thing.

        • Federal Immigration and National Act of 1952, Section 8 USC 1324[a](1)(A)[iv][b](iii) any US citizen that knowingly assists an illegal alien, provides them with employment, food, water or shelter has committed a felony. City, county or State officials that declare their jurisdictions to be “Open Cities, Counties or States are subject to arrest; as are law enforcement agencies who chose not to enforce this law. Police officers who ignore officials who violate Section 8 USC 1324[a](1)(A)[iv][b](iii) are committing a Section 274 federal felony.

          Basically according to Federal Immigration and National Act of 1952, if you live in a city, county or State that refuses to enforce the law for whatever reason, the officials making those rules are financially liable for any crime committed within their jurisdiction by an illegal alien.”

          • You have come across the crux of the problem.
            Democrats won’t prosecute or enforce laws.
            Republicans and independents won’t kill Democrats.

            • rellik

              Good one and true.

            • Democrats and Republicans won’t prosecute or enforce laws.
              Republicans and independents won’t kill Democrats and Republicans.

              Fixed that for ya there. 😉

              • Ever thought of moving to Hawaii? We could use you.

                • It’s beautiful there. My last trip was last year. Not many machine shops on any of the islands I’ve been to so far. Trust me, I’ve looked!

                  Sure wouldn’t be hard to talk /wifie/ into it but I’d need work to support a family.

                • Just don’t register any of your firearms there.

                  • Register? Guns?

                    I’ve no idea what you’re talking about. Can’t register what you don’t have!

      6. There A monster on the loose it called the democrat party with its RINO friends.

      7. There A monster on the loose it called the democrat party with its RINO friends.

      8. Take a good look around you. How many Goodie Two Shoes do you see? Their actions are going to drag you right down. Pure economics. Does suppose many are inviting them into their homes to eat from their tables. Oh it has to be our tables they eat from. The Pope should have some space in the Vatican and Obama in the White House for just a few. Errrrr Thousand!

        But we need more Democrat servants. More lower wage people who stress the systems for those who deserve support.

        This is what I mean when I have to pay for somebody else’s mistake or stupid idea.

        One day these bastards are going to rise up and bite the hand that feeds them, BECAUSE THEY NOW WANT IT ALL.

      9. Sorry for being whatever? I’m losing my patience. The good the bad the by by. Why do we have to put up with this?will it get better? We all know the answer to that. Do them now or they do us later? Smell the coffee. It’s all about numbers. This might be our last chance. Or listen to the bimbos. They know what’s right. Bimbos rule. And you can never hit a women. So they can do whatever they want. Until it’s party time. Then payback. Fu. If you don’t like it. No my bimbo isn’t like that . OK One out of one thousand . Let’s all lay down and die because you have a not stupid bimo we all know who votes for these rats. It’s little lesbo scum.and minorities. Deny deny deny. Until you can’t. Then you will be surrounded and out numbered. And if you expect the mercy you showed. When you had numbers forget it . You are dog food . And you know it.

      10. Electrify the fence, or shoot them.

      11. Try to go illegal into Mexico and see what happens.

      12. Setting on the fence like that. WOW easy targets.
        Wait until BLM finds out that they are not getting all the goodies!

        • But Sarge its hard to hit the target holding the gun sideways!

      13. There used to be classes in how to get the most from welfare.

        Apply for Section 8 housing whether or not you need it because the wait time is years not weeks or months. A lot can change in seven or eight years. Be persistent. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. I know someone who is a little “off”. She applied for housing for herself and her child. After eight years passed, the child was no longer living with her so the housing decided she was fraudulent and didn’t qualify for two bedrooms. Instead of changing her to one bedroom, they kicked her off the list. I tried to get her to go to Legal Aide for legal assistance, but she had given up and couldn’t see her own self interest thru to a conclusion. She became homeless. She suffered terribly as a woman, a young blue eyed white woman on the streets, you can only imagine how she suffered. She could be anyone of you. Learn your rights. Get your papers in order. Be prepared for having to deal with the government employees. Get all documents together. Put copies in a second location. Come prepared to wait. Be patient but persistent.

        • OR, perhaps you shouldn’t have kids when you cant even support yourself… Part of the problem in this country is people making stupid ass choices and not having to be held responsible for them.

          • Demonic:

            I wholeheartedly agree. I am simply pointing out that this system is unfair and biased.

            By the way, “people who are not able to take care of themselves shouldn’t have children” is an overworked phrase.

            This girl was perfectly normal, went to college, was smarter than ninety per cent and graduated with a 4.0. She was in a car accident and sustained serious head injury. She was more than qualified to become a parent and later more than qualified to receive assistance under the present system; Whether you believe in the system or not.

      14. Do not forget all the free medical care they receive.

        • Smokey:

          That’s right. Lots of people getting free medical.

          Unfortunately, in this case, this young woman never received medical treatment and later when her odd behavior became noticeable, doctors said it was too late for medical intervention. No bills, but no cure either. A tragedy for all concerned.

      15. Let it all go to shit. Im prepped as much as I want to be. Ill be glad when the EBT no longer is there.

        • Old Guy

          I agree. Let it all go to shit.
          I ask myself just what in the hell am I waiting for. For people to wake up. To give a damn as to what is happening. There is not enough to swing any movement. Fifty against and fifty for. A stalemate that goes on and on. I hang around here to help those coming on line but I believe that those who would prep are already done.

          Like you, I’m done except for fine tuning.

      16. I do not care as much as I use to about people. I believe this country will never be one again. My vote don’t count and the politicians are above the law. Our government allows foreign influence in our politics and induces divisional tactics to destroy us.
        I do believe Hillary will be the next President. I have withstood almost eight years of a jerkoff in the White house. Can we withstand one year of Hillary? I doubt it.

        I await the election. Too bad it is not tomorrow.

      17. I am not sure how our system got so perverted, but I would like to see it changed.

        • When people tell God to get out of their lives He gives them what they demand.

        • Election Fraud by both parties which is why our forefathers and framers told us to NEVER allow a party system – though the “party’s” got into place quickly. That is so that there could be foreign influence and monied influence.

          George Washington on factions in his farewell presidential speech: ‘The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty
          Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind, (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight,) the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.
          It serves always to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.
          There is an opinion, that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the Government, and serve to keep alive the spirit of Liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in Governments of a Monarchical cast, Patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in Governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And, there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be, by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume.”

          John Adams: “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”

          John Adams: “Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.”

          Thomas Paine: “THOSE who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it. The event of yesterday was one of those kind of alarms which is just sufficient to rouse us to duty, without being of consequence enough to depress our fortitude. It is not a field of a few acres of ground, but a cause, that we are defending, and whether we defeat the enemy in one battle, or by degrees, the consequences will be the same.

      18. So now the working Muslims from the Middle East and North Africa will be supported by your tax dollars while they plan jihad and rape your daughters.

        If we don’t get Trump and reverse immigration laws back to 1965. I think their will be jihad alright. Only it will be jihad against the traitors in DC, at Goldman Sachs, the Federal Reserve and anywhere and everywhere TPTB are hanging out.

      19. Actually, Hispanic is a culture (or more precisely, a loose grouping of cultures). It is not a race. Hispanics are typically mostly White, and appear so. They often have some American Indian ancestry, and sometimes a little Black. Even the US government calls Hispanic an ethnicity rather than a race.

        Likewise for the other two groups of immigrants that are often named as problematic in conservative circles. Mexican (effectively a subset of Hispanic, and similarly white skinned) is a nationality, not a race. Muslim (Islamic) is a religion, not a race. And most commonly white skinned as well.

        We should be prepared to quickly respond to those who support illegal immigration and mass resettlement of Muslims. Make them sound as silly as they really are. For example, “Since when is Hispanic a race?”

        • Splitting hairs. U are still wrong if you don’t know that unrestrained immigration threatens the safety and security of all Americans, regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.

          But thanks for the info: Which is correct, technically speaking.

      20. Congress is corrupt,the supreme Ct. is corrupt and the president is. Close the border,require those coming in to learn english,if they have money pay taxes,turn the rest over to the government until they prove their loyalty and quit giving everyone on the planet everything you earn. AMERICA FIRST!

      21. Just watched a Trump rally video. I guess I’m a racist bigot KKK member . I see these brown rats and can’t imagine how anyone could want them in their country. They don’t want them in their country. How could we want them in ours. When the cleaning starts they are easy to spot. They are all brown. And if your little child is married to one guess what.

      22. They are the reason all the free shit bums eat. See they work in the field growing food don’t you think they should get to eat some of it.

      23. Beans, rice and tortillas are relatively cheap compared to most other foods. Limit food assistance to illegals to those items and drastically lower EBT allowances across the board. Demand that they do make work to qualify or you get nothing. House them in the slums, the message will get back to Mexico or whatever third world hellhole they illegally entered from. Yeah right!

      24. NWO, Project White Genocide.
        Their vision of the future has no place for whitey. Fake wars, especially in the middle east have gone some way in helping them to generate millions of “refugees” who are then shipped “in the name of humanity” direct to predominantly white Christian countries!
        These immigrants are just one example of the dirty tricks the NWO have employed to further their goal of creating their composite race… The Eurasian-Negroid.

      25. The reason that immigrants are walking across Europe and heading for the UK is because when they get here they are allowed to jump to the top of social housing queues and are treated as first class citizens.

        The bankers will go to any lenghts to push house prices up and to keep wages down using the influx of cheap immigrant labour and once in many of these migrants can send money back home to fly granny in too.

        You don’t fallout with the water thats floods in because you have a leak and our fight is with the bankers and not the immigrants who are only taking advantage of the leak.

      26. Why does everyone insist on calling illegal aliens “immigrants?”

        The legal definition of an immigrant according to the IRS is “An alien who has been granted the right by the USCIS to reside permanently in the United States and to work without restrictions in the United States.”

        Another government website states that an immigrant is a person who has entered the United States legally with the intention of becoming a citizen.

        Calling illegal aliens “immigrants” insults actual immigrants who have taken the time, money and trouble to get here legally and gives the left a chance to claim that anyone who opposes illegal aliens is against immigration.

        • Because Scratchback and Sandnigger is frowned upon.

      27. OMG, what a load of CRAP.

        Illegal immigrants cannot receive any type of government assistance, such as the food card, Medicaid, or cash benefits. And, the sources here are fake or from someone’s blog. is a propaganda site which is provided to dumb down Americans, make them stupid so they can be controlled by the right-wing. Obviously, it’s working pretty well, considering the comments I’m reading.

        Do you people realize you’ve been conned? Do you have any clue as to how you can easily verify information using something as common as Google?

        For GODS SAKE, use your brains.
        What a bunch of idiots.

      28. This is the cloward and piven strategy.
        offer freebies to deadbeats and thieves,
        get as many on the dole as possible,
        burden the system to the point of breaking
        then once they are hooked, withhold it.
        the greek style rioting and destruction in the streets
        will beckon marshal law and start a civil war.
        know the enemy and drag them out before they put us all in chains.
