Default US considers limit on green cards for immigrants on benefits

The US doesn't need to merely consider it; we should ban green cards for those who will be a burden rather than a benefit.

Quote:
The Trump administration has proposed rules that could deny green cards to immigrants if they use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers and other forms of public assistance.

Federal law already requires those seeking green cards and to prove they will not be a burden or "public charge" but the new rules detail a broad range of programs that could disqualify them.

The Department of Homeland Security said Saturday that current and past receipt of certain public benefits above thresholds would be considered "a heavily weighed negative factor" in granting green cards as well as temporary stays.

The proposal "will clearly define long-standing law to ensure that those seeking to enter and remain in the United States either temporarily or permanently can support themselves financially and will not be reliant on public benefits," the department said.

The 447-page proposal published on the department's website will appear in the Federal Register "in the coming weeks," triggering a 60-day public comment period before it takes effect.

Coming less than seven weeks before midterm elections, the announcement could help galvanize voters who have backed or opposed Trump's broad crackdown on legal and illegal immigration.

Potentially disqualifying benefits include Medicare Part D prescription drugs, Medicaid with some exceptions for emergency services and disability services related to education, food stamps and Section 8 housing vouchers.

This is excellent and I hope it is instituted.

Absolutely!...

If you're here to suck on the government teat, you're not adding to the American Dream; you're taking it away from others...

Democrats will be against this of course, just like they are against forcing immigrants to learn English, which will keep them down at poverty level for ever.

I have never understood why the left wants more and more taxes, but does care to put more and more people to work so they have more tax revenue.

I think if this goes through you will see more immigrants doing what they need to do to become self sufficient members of society. This will be horrible news for the left.

I foresee a carefully forum shopped Federal district judge issuing a national decree of a new Constitutional right for welfare recipient aliens to receive green cards.

After all since Trump is President Federal district judges are the real rulers.
