‘Homeland Security’ promotes welfare to new immigrants in government ‘welcome’ materials
Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your new country can do for you.
â€śWelcome to USA.gov,â€ť a website maintained by the Department of Homeland Securityâ€™s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), bills itself as the â€śprimary gateway for new immigrants to find basic information on how to settle in the United Statesâ€ť â€” featuring a prominent section for new immigrants about how to access government benefits.
â€śDepending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs,â€ť the Web page reads.
â€śGovernment assistance programs can be critically important to the well-being of some immigrants and their families. Frequently, however, there is a lack of information about how to access such benefits. Benefit programs can be complicated and you may be given misleading information about how they operate.â€ť
