And for millions of illegal aliens in Obama’s America, the clear answer is a resounding “si!”
The “food-stamp president” from Chicago should be a smash hit with the fugitive illegal alien class. Regardless of the Constitution and the Founders’ hope for a nation governed by the Rule of Law, those people never had it so good. And that is really saying something.
As astonishing as it is, we are told there are still American voters who are undecided on their vote for president in November.
For all concerned, a look at a few illegal immigration facts surrounding Democrat Dear Leader’s war on enforcement and self-reliance to mull over on your way to the voting booth:
Obama’s Agriculture Department is encouraging food stamp use on foreign language radio. Yes, the USDA is targeting Spanish speakers with radio “novelas” promoting food stamp usage. Telenovelas are a popular form of entertainment in Latin American countries. ( See related video on my MDJ blog.)
Food stamp use reached a record 46.7 million people in June, and according to Bloomberg News, food-stamp spending more than doubled in four years.
“This administration has been hawking food stamps” U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) told Bloomberg this week. “Every additional dollar in this program is borrowed money,” he said. “It’s one more example of government incompetence.”
The feds report spending on food stamps, officially called the ‘Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – SNAP,’ totaled $6.21 billion in June. The record is $6.26 billion in September 2011. “Change” indeed.
Americans who have been constantly told — and accepted as fact — that “undocumented workers” cannot access welfare benefits may be asking what Obama’s “come get ‘em” food stamp program has to do with illegal aliens. Here’s what: The magic “anchor babies” — children born to illegal alien parents in the U.S. — are currently regarded as automatic U.S. citizens and are eligible for welfare at birth. Including food stamps. And Medicaid. And more…
Well-coached 21st century illegal aliens understand that the more children they can produce, the easier it is to access American welfare benefits which then aid the entire family. And they then scream “You can’t deport me, I have an American citizen child…!” While marching in the street against any immigration enforcement. “Cheap labor in the shadows” indeed.
Each USDA-produced food stamp novela, titled “PARQUE ALEGRIA,” or “HAPPINESS PARK,” presents a semi-dramatic scenario involving characters convincing others to get on food stamps, or explaining how much healthier it is to be on food stamps.
The USDA is not promoting an equivalent English-language drama series, says Washington’s Daily Caller.
This is no-doubt regarded by the illegal alien lobby as “hate-reporting.”
Another “hate-fact?” According to the U.S. Census and the respected Center for Immigration Studies most illegal alien families collect some sort of welfare. Judicial Watch sums it up: “Census Bureau data reveals that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies. Even before the recession, immigrant households with children used welfare programs at consistently higher rates than natives …”
“Just looking for a better life” indeed.
It may help some voters to decide on how Americans should move forward to know the Democrats proudly and shamelessly welcomed an illegal alien as a featured speaker at their national convention. You read that correctly. Illegal alien addresses Democrat political convention on national TV. How heartwarming.
The illegal alien lobby blogosphere is squealing in delight at how far they have moved forward since Obama and the Dems began ruling in the White House.
“In choosing to have someone who defiantly remains present in the United States in violation of federal law address the convention during prime time is nothing more than a celebration of lawlessness. And by celebrating illegal immigration, the Democratic Party is sending a clear message that our immigration laws are not only inconsequential, but that the people who break our laws are heroes,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR). I agree.
The question is: Are Americans better off than they were four years ago? The other question is: If the GOP cannot take the White House from Obama, can they beat anyone … ever ?
