A 2004 program creating an “agreement” with Mexico will make sure the U.S. gets adequate information into the hands of Mexican illegal aliens “migrant communities,” “Mexican Americans” and “Mexican nationals,” clarifying how they get food stamps or enrolled in SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). The poor people who need this assistance can download the forms on their personal computers. According to MoreFood.org, you might be eligible for food stamps and SNAP even if you have a retirement account and own a home.

USDA has an agreement withÂ MexicoÂ to promote American food assistance programs, including food stamps, among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.
â€œUSDA 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,â€ the USDA explains in a brief paragraph on their â€œReaching Low-Income Hispanics With Nutrition Assistanceâ€ web page. â€œMexico will help disseminate this information through its embassy and network of approximately 50 consular offices.â€
The goal is to get rid of “enrollment obstacles” and “increase access among potentially eligible populations” by working WITH MEXICO. Mexico will now school “migrants” on the “potential” benefits of crossing the border into the U.S. (but have been doing so for years).
The average FNS/SNAP benefit amount for all adults is $135/month. Can you imagine what a difference this could make in your grocery budget? Or, what a difference it would make to spend these benefits on food, and free up $135 of your own money to pay for other expenses â€“ pet food, gasoline, medical bills, or utilities?
Over the last few years, FNS/SNAP criteria have expanded so that more people qualify! If you applied in the past, but wereÂ notÂ approved, you might qualify now based solely on these changes.
â€¢ TheÂ income limitÂ for households in now about 1-1/2 times higher than the previous limit
â€¢ NC no longer uses aÂ resource limitÂ for most households.Â You may be able to get benefits even if you own a home, car, land, property or have a retirement account or money in the bank.
â€¢Â Household expensesÂ are evaluated as part of your application, including housing costs. And for those who are disabled or age 60+ medical expenses are also considered.
â€œThe premise of American immigration is that those entering our country should have to work and to contribute to theÂ financialÂ health of the United States,â€ Sessions told TheDC Sunday evening. â€œNot only does the administration violate this principle through the partnership, but it does harm by gradually displacing the role of family and community with continual government aid.Â Welfare ReformÂ is guided by the moral principle that good policy helps more people live better lives.â€
The USDA says the 2004 program does not include illegals – they have no “outreach” to illegals, and I have a beautiful little island in the Florida Everglades I want to give away to some really nice person. So contact me and I’ll draw up the papers and get it into your name pronto.
In the Daily Caller article linked above, note the partial list of materials available to explain what we are willing to do. They are available for download online. Really poor people do have computers, but then they own homes and retirement accounts too.
