House Votes to End Food Stamp Promotion to Foreign Nationals

USDA has apparently pushed food stamps in Mexico for a decade


The House passed an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday to end the Agriculture Department's partnership with the Mexican government to promote nutrition assistance programs.

"It is outrageous that for nearly ten years the U.S. Department of Agriculture has, in collaboration with the Mexican government, used taxpayer dollars to promote food stamp enrollment to foreign nationals," Tennessee Republican Rep. Diana Black, the amendment's sponsor, said.
