Thumbs up Supreme Court allows Trump plan to deny green cards to those who may need gov't aid

There are few things more aggravating than seeing taxes seized from hardworking Americans going towards welfare for those in this country who aren't even citizens, so this is a welcome change.

Quote:
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court issued an order Monday allowing the Trump administration to begin enforcing new limits on immigrants who are considered likely to become overly dependent on government benefit programs.

The court acted on a vote of 5-4. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan said they would have left a lower court ruling in place that blocked enforcement while a legal challenge works its way through the courts.

The Department of Homeland Security announced in August that it would expand the definition of "public charge," to be applied to people whose immigration to the U.S. could be denied because of a concern that they would primarily depend on the government for their income.

In the past, that was largely based on an assessment that an immigrant would be dependent upon cash benefits. But the Trump administration proposed to broaden the definition to include non-cash benefits, such as Medicaid, supplemental nutrition, and federal housing assistance.

I agree. Only a person with a welfare bum mentality would attempt to migrate to some country and expect that country to also support him.

Good. People coming here should be self sufficient. Not a burden to tax payers.
