PostHeaderIcon Eligible Non-citizen?

The most curious thing about this AP report on Obama’s illegal alien aunt, who has been making repeated small donations to his campaign, was the last paragraph:

In Boston, Lydia Agro, communications director for the Housing Authority, said Onyango had been screened and approved for public housing as an “eligible non-citizen” when she moved in in 2003. She said the authority is not notified of deportation orders and did not know Onyango was related to Obama until two days ago.

How does any non-citizen become eligible for welfare?  I read elsewhere that she was also getting paid a stipend by them for part-time work. I had assumed that they were just unaware that she was an alien, or they would not have given her a job or free housing. This story makes it clear they knew better. ◄Dave►
