The Trump administration has asked the Supreme Court to move forward with a rule that would make it easier to deny legal status to immigrants whose families are deemed likely to use publicly funded programs, reports The Hill.

A federal appeals court in New York last week blocked the Trump administration from enforcing the “public charge” rule from being implemented.

The rule would withhold green cards from immigrants likely to require government assistance such as Medicaid or food stamps. The policy would also examine the likelihood of an immigrant using the benefits in the future.

Legal immigration declined by almost 87,000 by more than 7% between fiscal year 2016 and fiscal year 2018, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

“Excluding refugees means 122,412 fewer legal immigrants became lawful permanent residents in FY 2018 than in FY 2016, a decline of 11.5%,” according to a National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) analysis.

A spokesperson for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services last week in a statement said the “public charge inadmissibility rule enforces long-standing immigration law that Congress reaffirmed in 1996.”

  1. A spokesperson for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services last week in a statement said the “public charge inadmissibility rule enforces long-standing immigration law that Congress reaffirmed in 1996.”

    No reaching, just like “anchor” babies. Can change any wording to be interpreted for socialism. Heck we even had to change the word “is” for Former President Clinton and his impeachment, which by the way had 11 felonies.

    This issue MUST be addressed. Illegal aliens, who break the law coming here in the first place ARE NOT entitled to ANY welfare. Welfare comes from Taxpayers and it should be used for American Citizens, not to make a life out of it, but to help those for a “temporary” relief so they can work to get back on their own two feet.

    With the economy doing Great and lowest unemployment EVER, more people are freeing themselves of Welfare. American taxpayers need the relief of those illegal aliens that feel entitled by the Socialist Democratic Party. Stop his Dem Quid pro quo.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  2. Deny public aid for illegal aliens. Consider denying social security for people who have been in the U.S. for 10 years and can’t apply for SS in English, unless they’re over 70 years old.
