Obama Administration releases welfare guide in 14 different languages to help immigrants collect taxpayer-funded handouts

(NaturalNews) Obviously, not every Republican voter is enamored with the candidacy of billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump, but the one issue where he is soaring above his fellow GOP presidential contenders is immigration and, in particular, illegal immigration, as the mainstream media is finally realizing.
During the Nov. 10 GOP debate on Fox Business Channel, Trump doubled down on the issue, claiming that, if he becomes president, he'll move to deport the estimated 12 million to 15 million people currently residing illegally in the United States, as the audience roared in approval.
Meanwhile, the Obama Administration is doing everything it can to accommodate them.
As reported by Breitbart News, the administration recently released an updated welcome guide for new immigrants – illegal and otherwise – that detailed all the "free" (taxpayer-funded) goodies they were eligible to apply for, including food stamps, various welfare programs and, of course, Obamacare.
'Come in – take as much as you want'"You or members of your family may be eligible for other federal benefits, depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income level," the guidebook reads.
Titled Welcome to the United States: A Guide for New Immigrants, the publication is even available in 14 languages, all paid for by the beleaguered American taxpayer: Arabic, English, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog (!), Urdu (!!), Vietnamese and two varieties of Chinese.
Breitbart further noted:
The guide offers detailed information on the expectations and rights of a permanent resident, tips on settling in the U.S., employment advice, and available public benefits. It also highlights reasons to become a citizen.
"This comprehensive guide contains practical information to help you settle into everyday life in the United States. It also contains basic civics information that introduces you to the U.S. system of government," the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services says.
The federal agency also highlighted the release of its updated guidebook in mid-November. Changes to the publication include, as noted by Breitbart:
-Revised and updated general information on policies, programs and resources;
-A refreshed layout and design;
-A new chapter called "Taking Care of Your Money" on personal finance, taxes and financial scams; and
-A new chapter called "Understanding Education and Health Care" on the education system, adult education programs, and the health insurance marketplace.
In the "Understanding Education and Health Care" section, there is information about the nation's public school system (local districts of which are being inundated and overrun with non-English-speaking immigrants), English as a Second Language (ESL) programs, financial assistance for college and other adult education programs.
Also, the section details healthcare options like Medicare, Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and gaining access to Obamacare marketplaces.
Meanwhile, the national debt continues to grow"The Marketplace will allow you to compare certain types of private health insurance plans, get answers to questions, find out if you are eligible for financial support to help pay for the cost of coverage, and enroll in a health care plan that meets your needs," the guidebook reads. "Permanent residents and certain other people with lawful immigration status may qualify for Marketplace insurance."
And all at a time when scores of Obamacare exchanges are failing financially.
The guidebook also provides many tips on how to access as much taxpayer-funded largess as possible, like:
Some immigrants, including children, may be eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP provides you with funds to help you buy food at grocery stores. Some states have their own state-funded food assistance programs with different rules for immigrant eligibility that may vary from state to state. For information about SNAP and the eligibility requirements, visit www.fns.usda.gov/snap. Information about SNAP is available in 36 different languages at www.fns.usda.gov/documents-available-other-languages.
Did we mention that we have an $19 trillion national debt as well?
