Over the years, there have been many cases of millions of dollars worth of food stamp fraud reported where the person charged with the crime is an immigrant.
Welfare fraud and food stamp fraud runs rampant at convenience stores in low-income areas where many customers receive food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or WIC benefits. The owners of these stores often happen to be immigrants (see our numerous previous reports below) who know how to scam the system. Of course, not all of the immigrant-owned stores are scamming the system but many are experts at it.
Let this sink in: A January 2019 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report found that at least $1 billion in food stamp benefits had been trafficked each year in the U.S.
The incidences of ‘new Americans’ who are fraudulently exchanging food stamps for cash should be a reason for immediate deportation once they’ve served their jail sentence.
Reports of several immigrant store owners committing fraud using food stamps is a problem that should be looked at more closely. These ‘new Americans’ get loans to open the stores and then take advantage of the opportunity by scamming Americans out of MILLIONS.
