Feds Offer Welfare to New Immigrants

From the Daily Caller:

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 to find basic information on how to settle in the United States” — featuring a prominent section for new immigrants about how to access government  benefits.

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

“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.”

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,” with a  nonworking link to Benefits.gov.
