Illegal immigrants and food stamp fraud

Janet and I were in a grocery store this week, watching a Mexican woman pay for $200 in groceries with an EBT food stamp card.

She was completely illiterate in English, and she made a big scene, screaming at the cashier in Mexican because it was taking her too long to steal food from the government!

By law, illegal Mexican immigrants are supposed to be ineligible for food stamps, but there is a catch. They can get food stamps if at least one U.S. citizen in their household, which describes all U.S. born children of illegal Mexicans.

Here in North Carolina, any Mexican can walk into a social services food stamp office and get food stamps, without any proof of citizenship, or even any positive identification. They only need to bring a Mexican child with them, and say that they were hungry.

Even more dismaying, disabled Mexicans may be eligible for food stamps based on disability, regardless of the date that they entered America illegally.

Let’s look at what goodies illegal aliens get when they enter other countries:

- If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely.
- If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you are shot on sight.
- If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you are immediately jailed.
- If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from again.
- If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be executed.
- If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into prison.
- If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get a plane ride with Bill Clinton.

But if you cross the United States border illegally you get

- A job
- A driver’s license
- A social security card
- Food stamps
- Free education
- Free medical care
- Billions of dollars worth of public documents printed in your language
- The right to carry your country's flag while you protest that you don’t get respect for being a criminal.

Let’s never forget, America is a nation of legal immigrants, and the last people we want on our shores are illegal immigrants who have no respect for the law.

Read why this is reverse Darwinism , survival of the criminals at the expense of honest immigrants.
