Obama administration promotes welfare to new immigrants

Yet more evidence Obama and the Democrats are hellbent on bankrupting the United States.

America’s national debt now exceeds $16 trillion and this country’s annual gross national product. After four years of Obama as President, more Americans than ever are on food stamps and Social Security Disability. The POS even gutted Bill Clinton’s work requirement for welfare.

But even all that isn’t enough. The Obama administration wants even more welfare dependents and is actively promoting welfare to new immigrants to America.      


Caroline May reports for The Daily Caller, Nov. 18, 2012, that “Welcome to USA.gov,” a website maintained by the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to provide “basic information on how to settle in the United States” to new immigrants, prominently features a section on how new immigrants can access “government benefits” taxpayer-funded welfare.

The web page reads:

“Depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs. 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.”

Then the DHS page helpfully gives the 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.

WelcometoUSA.gov also boasts to immigrants that “[f]ree public education for children is one reason many immigrants come to the United States.”

Still doubt that Obama and the Dems are following the diabolical Cloward-Piven Strategy?
