he SNAP program is considered by many Americans to be an important federal social safety net that serves millions of Americans — including people who have entered the country illegally.

It is the latter category of people who are literally wetting their pants at the prospect of being deported under the Trump administration. SNAP officials say they’ve gotten a number of calls from illegal immigrants on food stamps asking if they should get out of the program. That way, they can’t be identified by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and won’t be deported.

This is called “consciousness of guilt,” because these “immigrants” are fully aware that they are in the U.S. illegally and that by feeding at the public trough they are breaking the law.
