The U.S.D.A. is now making it faster and easier for “discriminated” Hispanic farmers to get much larger awards on the taxpayer dime. It’s called buying the Hispanic vote.
This is one of the biggest scams that has ever been inflicted on the American taxpayer. If you’ve read about the Pigford settlement, you know that it became a giveaway to Blacks to buy their votes, now it’s moved on to the Hispanics.
Some minority farmers might have been discriminated against by the U.S.D.A. and while it was never clearcut, the lawsuit was won and a huge settlement was handed out. Since Obama’s reign, it has been expanded to include almost any minority who said he owned a piece of land and felt discriminated upon by the U.S.D.A.
In part, Obama likely sees this as a means of providing reparations for slavery – an issue he feels strongly about. I don’t know about you, but no one in my family ever owned a slave and I don’t owe anyone anything for slavery. If some of the minority farmers were discriminated against, they deserve reparations but this is very far beyond that. Read about it here: Big Government

A few years ago black farmers got $1.25 billion to settle discrimination allegations and last summer the Obama Administration announced a new pot of “compensation” cash—$1.33 billion—for women and Hispanics.
Originally, under that plan, Hispanics who felt they were victims of USDA discrimination could get up to $50,000 to make up for their suffering. To get the word out the feds launched an impressive bilingual advertising and public relations campaign that includes national outreach tours by top USDA officials as well as Justice Department bigwigs because that agency is sort of overseeing it.
This month the USDA quietly increased the amount of money that each discriminated Hispanic farmer can collect by five times, to $250,000. The agency also announced an “updated claims process” that simplifies and speeds things up so the victims can get their government cash faster. Victims are encouraged to participate in the simplified process and are assured that there is no filing fee or other costs… Read here: Judicial Watch
