Americans are constantly told by Democrats that illegal aliens are not using welfare. This one was.

According to a U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) press release, an illegal alien living in Iowa has been sentenced for “fraudulently withdrawing welfare assistance.”

“Cleotilde Puac-Gomez, 46, a citizen of Guatemala who is illegally residing in the U.S. in Clarion, Iowa, was sentenced to two months in federal prison after pleading guilty Feb. 6, 2019, to one count of theft of U.S. government funds,” the release said.

In a plea agreement, Puac-Gomez admitted that she underreported her husband’s income in order to qualify for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Medicaid benefits.

Her husband, Melvin Rodriguez-Barrios, is also an illegal alien who used someone else’s social security number to obtain work in the U.S.

“Puac-Gomez’s husband, Rodriguez-Barrios, 44, was previously sentenced on March 27 to six months’ imprisonment following a Jan. 2, 2019, bench trial which found him guilty of three counts of unlawfully using an identification document and four counts of misusing a social security number,” the release said.

The report of the latest immigration fraud comes at a time of gridlock in Washington, D.C. over border security.

Big League Politics reported:

President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.

In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.
