Bad Santa

Once again, America can sleep easy knowing that immigrant grifters aren't pulling one over on Whitey!

Some toy drives check immigration status

In a year when more families than ever have asked for help, several programs providing Christmas gifts for needy children require at least one member of the household to be a U.S. citizen. Others ask for proof of income or rely on churches and schools to suggest recipients.

The Salvation Army and a charity affiliated with the Houston Fire Department are among those that consider immigration status, asking for birth certificates or Social Security cards for the children.

The point isn't to punish the children
but to ensure that their parents are either citizens, legal immigrants or working to become legal residents, said Lorugene Young, whose Outreach Program Inc. is one of three groups that distribute toys collected by firefighters.

Of course that's not the point of the policy, it's merely the effect. But hey, poor kids probably don't want gifts at Christmastime anyway, right?
