Welfare: As if being “food stamp president” weren’t enough, Barack Obama’s administration is partnering with the Mexican government to make sure Mexican nationals living in the U.S. don’t miss out. Ay caramba!
On Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who’s been pushing for reform of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, sent a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack asking for details of our partnership agreement with Mexico to promote food stamp use, including whether we are looking the other way in cases of illegal aliens.
The partnership agreement goes back to 2004, so Obama administration defenders will no doubt say if there’s anything amiss it must be President George W. Bush’s fault. But just as food stamp use has skyrocketed here under President Obama, so too have marketing efforts in cooperation with Mexico. Is this an attempt to motivate the president’s Hispanic base?
So, is IBD suggesting Obama’s base are illegals?
Why, yes, they are.
The conclusion is an obvious one, when one considers:
- Increased pressure on states like Arizona to not enforce laws… theirs or the federal government’s… designed keep illegals out of the country
- A demonstrated need by Obama and company to eliminate proof of attempts to find work to qualify for welfare…. after all, illegals can’t work, supposedly… thus making it easy for illegals to live off our dime, as opposed to the legal immigrants who must now prove they have the ability to support themselves.
- The constant efforts to eliminate requirements of an ID for voters… thus making illegals able to vote illegally, much more easily.
And guess who they vote for?
Go ahead… explain to me how there can be any other motivation involved in these tactics, other than a cynical effort to collect illegal votes.
