Illegal immigration in the United States, while once a major problem, is quickly coming under control thanks to the efforts of President Trump.

For years, illegals have been coming into the United States, using up resources and taking jobs, and liberals expect taxpayers to foot the bill.

But now, in an ironic twist, illegal aliens are no longer searching for government assistance, for one very particular reason.

Immigrants are no longer applying for food stamps for fear of being deported if their information was released.

Thanks to President Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration, many are actually leaving because they now fear applying for government assistance and getting caught as a result.

The Daily Caller reports:

Immigrants living in the U.S. illegally aren’t applying for food stamps because they fear possible deportation under President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration, the Associated Press reports.

“I had been told that it’s OK to apply for food stamps,” one woman in New York, who asked to remain anonymous, told the AP Tuesday. “But, for the moment, I don’t want to take any risks.”

Undocumented aliens are not eligible to receive food stamps but may apply for benefits for their children, who are automatically eligible for food benefits regardless of when or how they came to the U.S.

Non-citizens “will not be deported, denied entry to the country, or denied permanent status because they apply for or receive SNAP benefits,” the Department of Agriculture (USDA) says.

Deportations since President Trump’s inaugurations have been over 40% higher than normal, though his incredibly strict immigration policies will not be fully implemented until 2018.

Many undocumented aliens fear that applying for food stamps, where they must list their immigration status, will put them into a government system and alert the Department of Homeland Security about their location.

The question arises, how does a non-citizen apply for help in the first place?

The issue is complicated, and immigrants have found a loophole by applying in their children’s names, whom if born here, are legal.

The Daily Caller reports:

The issue is complicated because while adult illegal residents are not eligible to receive food stamps, they may apply on behalf of their children and list their own immigration status. The USDA says that state health agencies, which make initial SNAP eligibility determinations, are only required to report illegal immigrants who seek and receive food stamps for themselves.

Some immigrants are leaving as a result of their lack of resources outside of their homeland.

One thing is certain – when President Trump’s full immigration policies are enacted, illegals will have a hard time getting anything from within the United States without being caught.
