Knights Party Press Release: June 5. 2023

Making demands already! Recently, The Statesman Journal published this headline, “Immigrants demand action on legislation to provide ‘food for all Oregonians’.”

Several dozen people in matching green t-shirts gathered in front of the state Capitol Thursday to demand Oregon lawmakers pass Senate Bill 610 out of the Joint Committee on Ways and Means.

The bill, colloquially known as “Food for All Oregonians,” would grant food assistance to people who are ineligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) due to their immigration status.

The bill would create a program within the Department of Health and Human Services that would functionally mirror SNAP and be available for people who would qualify for SNAP if not for their immigration status.

Roughly 62,000 people in Oregon fit that profile, according to the Oregon Food Bank.

Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, centrally located in Harrison, Arkansas, said, “Making demands already? This doesn’t sound like immigrants coming to America to work, this sounds like bums coming for a handout. America’s welfare systems are strained just by talking care of our own citizens that need help, now taxpayers are being asked to feed these non-white invaders. I don’t have anything against welfare, sure our citizens need help from time to time, but I believe every welfare recipient should be tested for drugs periodically, and a limit as to how long someone can receive benefits. America should not be feeding anyone who is not a citizen, and America is a White, Christian Nation, and in my opinion, the first qualifications to receive benefits should be that you need to be a citizen and secondly, you need to be White. These non-white invaders have no intentions of being productive American citizens.”
