It's OK to be on food stamps and apply for Citizenship....WHAT?

Several Republican senators voiced concern Monday over what they say is a weakening of citizenship standards when it comes to determining whether immigrants are over-relying on government aid like food stamps.

Republicans, who note in the letter, "It has long been a sound principle of immigration law that those who seek citizenship in this country ought to be financially self-sufficient. We were thus shocked to discover that both the State Department and DHS exclude reliance on almost all governmental welfare programs when evaluating whether an alien is likely to become a public charge."
The full story is HERE.

There is a study that shows that Immigration puts a financial burden on the U.S. and this is just one of many reasons why.

Wow. How do non-citizens qualify for those programs in the first place?
