The Washington Post doesn’t want you to know that illegal aliens are receiving food stamps, or at least it doesn’t want that information in their headlines.

On Thursday, readers noticed a subtle shift in headlines under its ‘Wonkblog’ column. What initially read as “Immigrants are now canceling their food stamps for fear that Trump will deport them,” was quickly changed to “Immigrants are going hungry so Trump won’t deport them”.

Contributing writer to the Daily Caller noticed the subtle shift. He tweeted:

Which raises the question: What was wrong with the initial headline? Was it misleading their readers? 

Perhaps the Washington Post isn’t comfortable using the words ‘illegal’ and ‘food stamps’ in the same sentence, or maybe it’s the tacit acknowledgment that illegal aliens in this country receive government benefits paid for by the American taxpayer.
