    "1. Homeland Security promotes welfare to new immigrants in government ‘welcome’ materials

    2. “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...a prominent section for new immigrants about how to access government benefits.

    3. “Government assistance programs can be critically important to the well-being of some immigrants and their families.

    4. 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,” ...

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

    6. USCIS spokesman Bill Wright told The Daily Caller that the site is not intended to advise individuals on their eligibility."

    So....correct me if I'm wrong: all of you Pod People voted to advertise to the world that we're not giving away enough benefits to non-citizens?

    You voted for a greater national debt? True?


    This couldn't be part of the desire to transfer America's wealth to the rest of the world....could it, Pods?

    ...you know....one of the things we warned you about before the election?

    Sound like much to do about nothing at all, or a really bad SciFi story!

    We certainly shall see because the takers are getting ready to outnumber the providers.

    Hope you have a fat wallet cause you're gonna need it.

    You warned about this before the election, eh? The giving away of stuff to immigrants? And this is your evidence that Obama is doing this now, eh?

    Wow! This is the second topic today about this, and you fools who open your mouths to guzzle the Daily Caller's piss still haven't figured out you are being had! :lol: :lol:

    That Homeland Security immigrant web page has been around since at least June 2007.

    Here is a link to that page from May 2008:WelcometoUSA.gov | Government Benefits

    And since I know you guys like pictures, here's a photo from the 2008 page:

    Now go ahead and cover up your embarrassment by saying Obama is doubling down on Bush, or something.

    Or just say BUUUUUUUUUUUUUSH as if that explains away your gullibility.

    The Daily Caller loves them rubes! Mmmm-mmm-mmmm, yummy!

    Twice in one day. Are you all on some kind of mailing list for topics to discuss?

    So, new residents are to be kept ignorant? At what point are the secrets to be revealed? God forbid your maid finds out about the minimum wage, eh?

    So....you believe that, in the face of our deficits, I'd support advertising additional bonuses to encourage legal and illegal immigration?
    No matter which administration promised same?


    You really are having a comprehension problem.

    No....the immigrants I'd like are those who subscribe to JFK's famous My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.


    How could you possibly have been so misinformed?
