When you consider the motives for providing welfare benefits to foreigners who are in the country illegally, this certainly makes sense:
Federal officials have told Sedgwick County [Kansas] it could lose federal grant money for its health department if it insists on asking health clinic clients about their immigration or citizenship status.
The Sedgwick County Commission in October asked the state to block illegal immigrants from the federal Women, Infants and Children nutritional program, but there is no eligibility requirement based on immigration status, The Wichita Eagle reported.
Commissioners also asked county staff that month to create a form asking all people who use the county health department about their immigration or citizenship status. Supporters said the intent was to collect data to learn who the department serves – not to deny services to anyone.
Sorry; that’s forbidden. How are you going to use extravagantly generous welfare programs to lure in enough freeloaders from the Third World to displace the native population if they think they might get questioned about whether they are in the country legally? Also, it is important to keep the shrinking core population from knowing exactly how many foreigners we are supporting on a slave basis.
Commissioner Jim Howell said the USDA was making assumptions about the motives and consequences of using the form.
“When we take federal money on these types of programs, it limits our ability to do commonsense things,” Howell said. “It’s unfortunate the federal government would try to control us with threats of defunding.”
But of course, control is the whole point of federal funding. Not a penny of the states’ money comes back from the Debt Star without strings attached. All the strings together comprise a rope, tied into a noose around our necks.
