Feds just raided a Muslim market, and made a huge discovery. Not only the feds discovered that the market was committing food stamps, but they found out the market made multiple fraudulent transactions with customers not eligible for welfare benefits. The person who committed fraud was supposed to be banned 1 year from attaining government food stamps, thanks to the American taxpayers. But here comes the interesting part…
Obama administration granted them a pass, and believe it or not, no one was banned from receiving welfare. The government stated that the meal from the market was relied on by the Muslim recipient, and Obama’s admin gave him a pass.
According to LifeZette, Maine Gov. Paul LePage is objecting to a break the U.S. Department of Agriculture under the Obama administration gave a halal market that made fraudulent food stamp transactions.
The feds later stated that this is a final decision.
“If you have rules, you need to follow the rules. The problem with the previous administration is they were very, very weak on fraud.”
The market is located in Portland, and the name is Sindbad Market. According to the Agriculture Department’s Office of Inspector General, the market committed four fraudulent transactions with more than three customers not eligible for benefits.
The owner of the market was also included in this fraud, and that would bring him a one-year suspension of the ability to accept food stamps.
However, the attorney of the market asked for, and received an exemption in September that suspension would cause a hardship for Muslim food stamp recipients, who rely on the market for its preparation of halal meat, in accordance with Islamic law.
The market is fined with $33,000 instead…
