Nanny State Update: Homeland Security Is Promoting Welfare to New 'Immigrants'Topics:
In yet another move to never miss an opportunity to create cradle-to-grave dependency, Obama's Homeland Security is using a Spanish soap opera format to push food stamps on illegal immigrants and Spanish-speaking Americans:
The Daily Caller reports:
Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your new country can do for you.The Obama Administration has already met with Mexican officials thirty times to promote US food stamp program for illegal immigrants.
"Welcome to USA.gov," a website maintained by the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), bills itself as the "primary gateway for new immigrants to find basic information on how to settle in the United States" -- featuring a prominent section for new immigrants about how to access government benefits.
"Depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs," the Web page reads.
"Government assistance programs can be critically important to the well-being of some immigrants and their families. Frequently, however, there is a lack of information about how to access such benefits. Benefit programs can be complicated and you may be given misleading information about how they operate."
The DHS page offers links to government websites that explain how to access benefits including food stamps, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, Medicare, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and the "official website with information on all available federal benefit programs," with a nonworking link to Benefits.gov.
Not much to see here, folks. Just move along. It's our tax dollars at work In Obamamerica ... helping the nanny state create ever-more dependency and a mind set that government handouts trump creativity, individual initiative, and self sufficiency.
