Illegal immigrants can get food stamps on behalf of their eligible kids — without having to disclose their immigration status, according to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch.

The food-stamps offer is spelled out in a Spanish language flyer provided by the United States Department of Agriculture to the Mexican Embassy.

Judicial Watch said the flyer proves that the USDA is making “no effort to restrict aid to, identify, or apprehend illegal immigrants who may be on the food stamp rolls.’’

The flyer, part of the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, was made public in response to a Freedom of Information Act request made by Judicial Watch last July.

According to Judicial Watch, part of the statement, translated into English, emphasizes in bold and underlined words, “You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.”

A USDA spokesperson insisted to the Daily Caller that illegal immigrants remain ineligible for food stamps.

“Non-citizens who are unlawfully present, are not, nor have they ever been, eligible to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits,” the spokesperson said when presented with the flyer.
