    Trump Signs Order Cracking Down on Welfare-Dependent Legal Immigration

    Trump Signs Order Cracking Down on Welfare-Dependent Legal Immigration

    May 23, 2019

    The order signed by Trump will enforce existing 1996 laws known as the “Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act” and “Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act” which were signed by then-President Bill Clinton. The order ensures that federal agencies will enforce the existing 1996 laws which seek to save American taxpayers by having their public welfare funding benefits reimbursed when they are used by a legal immigrant.

    The first function of the order mandates that a family member or business sponsor of a legal immigrant looking to permanently resettle in the U.S. is responsible for paying back the welfare costs previously used by that immigrant.
    For example, if a visa holder has used $10,000 in food stamp benefits while living in the U.S., when a family member sponsors them for a green card, that family member will be notified of the legal immigrant’s welfare costs to taxpayers and obligated to pay back the amount.

    If the sponsor of a legal immigrant does not pay the welfare cost, the Treasury Offset Program will take the money out of the sponsor’s taxes for that year. Federal officials said implementation of this order would begin in September.
    A senior administration official told Breitbart News that the order to enforce Clinton’s 1996 law will drive down welfare-dependent legal immigration to the U.S. which has cost American taxpayers billions over the years.


    “This is a historic, transformative action to restore the foundational principle of U.S. immigration law: that those seeking to join our society must support themselves financially,” the official said.


    “This executive action will dramatically curb ‘welfare tourism’ and protect U.S. benefits for U.S. families,” the official continued. “It will also ensure that immigrant sponsors cannot continue the practice of bringing in large numbers of welfare-dependent immigrants: because they will be financially liable. Congress passed these laws – but they were effectively never used. Now they will be.”
    The second function of the order ensures that the income a sponsor to a legal immigrant is taken into consideration when a legal immigrant is applying for federal welfare.

    Currently, only the income of legal immigrants is considered by federal agencies when the national is applying for public benefits. Under the rules set out by Clinton’s 1996 law, the Trump administration will make certain that the income of both the legal immigrant and their sponsor is considered when applying for benefits.

    “Newcomers will not be able to live on free federal healthcare, housing, and other welfare at taxpayer expense,” the senior official said.

    A senior administration official said Trump’s order also will help prevent illegal aliens from obtaining federal welfare benefits.

    As Breitbart News reported, a similar regulatory change known as the “public charge” rule is set to be implemented and enforced this year which would effectively save American taxpayers billions in public dollars by banning foreign nationals from permanently resettling in the U.S. if they have previously used welfare.

    Currently, there is an estimated record high of 44.5 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S. This is nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000. The vast majority of those arriving in the country every year are low-skilled legal immigrants who compete against working and middle-class Americans for jobs.
    Legal immigration controls to prevent welfare-dependent nationals from permanently resettling in the U.S. would be a boon for American taxpayers in the form of an annual $57.4 billion tax cut — the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants.

    As Breitbart News reported, the majority of the more than 1.5 million foreign nationals entering the country every year use about 57 percent more food stamps than the average native-born American household. Overall, immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households and 44 percent more in Medicaid dollars. This straining of public services by the foreign-born population translates to the average immigrant household costing American taxpayers $6,234 in federal welfare.

    Joe Biden is about to be embarrassed again as Trump enforces his law on migrant welfare use

    With no cooperation from congressional Democrats, Trump takes to enforcing Joe Biden's earlier law on migrant welfare use.

    May 24, 2019
    By Monica Showalter

    With no cooperation from Democrats on resolving the migrant surge at the border, President Trump is getting creative:
    Here's the Real Clear Politics report:
    Anyone sponsoring an immigrant who collects welfare benefits before becoming a legal permanent resident could be on the hook for the bill. That’s according to a new presidential memorandum set to be released Thursday by the White House.
    President Trump will sign the memorandum directing federal agencies to ensure that any individual sponsoring a noncitizen must take financial responsibility for any income-based welfare benefits that immigrant receives.
    The move is meant to promote self-sufficiency for noncitizens and preserve the social safety net for people living legally in the country, a senior administration aide told RealClearPolitics.
    “This is a historic, transformative action to restore the foundational principle of U.S. immigration law: that those seeking to join our society must support themselves financially. Furthermore, those who, for whatever reason, cannot support themselves financially, must turn to their sponsor -- not the federal government,” the aide said.
    The move is a strongly common-sense measure, given that voters do oppose to extending welfare benefits to illegal migrants who've contributed nothing to this country, and whose succor has left citizens without resources as well as cheated legal migrants waiting in line.
    Studies show that migrants use welfare benefits well out of proportion to their numbers, and interviews with recent caravan border surgers suggest that many are drawn to the U.S. over far more logical nearby countries by the vast benefit packages offered by states such as California, the latest of which is free medical care in the works, amounting to a cost-free life on U.S. welfare and public benefits. Not surprisingly, those incentives have doubled California's illegal immigrant count from the 1 million of 1994 to the more than 2 million today, and the surge going on now is largely because of judicial rulings that always support handouts to foreigners in the U.S. illegally.
    For Trump, the approach appears to be fireproof - just enforcing existing law rather than attempting to cut a deal on immigration reform with impeachment-obsessed Democrats, or else attempting to govern the Obama Way, by executive order, which as we have seen, almost always results in an overturning by leftist courts.
    There will be media sob stories about illegals losing federal benefits from the activist-influenced press seeking to sway public opinion, and that's to be expected, but even that may fail spectacularly given the embedded booby trap within it.
    The law that's being enforced, the 1996 Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act and the 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, were both backed and passed by current Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden from his days as a Democratic moderate in the Senate.
    It was a law that followed from voter sentiment, dating at least to 1994, when California's voters overwhelmingly voted to pass Proposition 187, 59%-41% on 60% turnout, to deny welfare benefits and all but emergency medical care to illegal aliens. That law was what voters wanted but it was overturned by a left-wing judge in favor of the side he liked. The Democratic governor at the time declined to pursue an appeal, so the message was out that benefits were a sure thing for illegals, and not surprisingly, California's illegal immigrant count soared to number one in the nation, doubling from 1 million in 1994 to more than 2.2 million today.
    Enforcing this will be an embarrassment to old Joe, yet another thing in his record that he will foolishly disown to explain that he's a reformed man now, same as he did with his Anita Hill stance and quite a few other measures. Will that undercut his campaign? No doubt about it.

    ** PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP IS TAKING ACTION TO PROTECT OUR SOCIAL SAFETY NET AND PROMOTE SELF-SUFFICIENCY FOR NON-CITIZENS
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    **
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    ** “To protect benefits for American citizens, immigrants must be financially self-sufficient.” – President Donald J. Trump
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    **
    PROMOTING SELF-SUFFICIENCY: President Donald J. Trump is enforcing existing restrictions on welfare use by non-citizens in order to promote self-sufficiency.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    * President Trump signed a memorandum to ensure agencies fully enforce restrictions in place under current law on the use of income-based welfare programs by non-citizens.
    + Under current law, individuals sponsoring a non-citizen must take on financial responsibility for any income-based welfare benefits they receive.
    * The President is directing agencies to issue guidance to ensure income-based welfare payments are recovered from the sponsor.
    + Agencies will ensure sponsors are advised of their financial obligations under the law.
    + Cases where the sponsor fails to pay the lawfully required reimbursements will be referred for collection procedures in accordance with the law.
    * The national policy signed into law by President Clinton in 1996 made clear that aliens should “not depend on public resources to meet their needs.”
    * President Clinton signed legislation to require that the sponsor of a non-citizen be requested to reimburse any income-based welfare benefits the non-citizen receives.
    + This legislation, the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, was supported by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA).
    * President Clinton also signed legislation requiring the sponsor’s financial resources to be considered when determining whether a non-citizen is eligible for income-based welfare.
    + This legislation, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, was supported by top Congressional Democrats.

    ABUSE OF THE WELFARE SYSTEM: Rampant welfare abuse by non-citizens is straining the social safety net and jeopardizing benefits needed by the most vulnerable American citizens.
    * Vast numbers of non-citizens and their families take advantage of our welfare programs.
    + 78 percent of households headed by a non-citizen with no more than a high school education use at least one welfare program.
    + 58 percent of all households headed by a non-citizen use at least one welfare program.
    + 50 percent of all non-citizen headed households include at least one person who receives health insurance through Medicaid.
    * Welfare payments to sponsored aliens put further stress on our Nation’s safety net programs.
    MERIT-BASED IMMIGRATION: This is the latest step by the Trump Administration to ensure that those coming to our country are self-sufficient and do not strain our public resources.
    * Under our current immigration system, two-thirds of immigrants entering the United States do so based on family ties rather than on skill or merit.
    * This follows the President’s proposed housing rule that would require verification of the immigration status of anyone who seeks to access housing benefits.
    * A merit-based immigration system would further ensure that immigrants make positive contributions to the United States.
    * Americans widely agree with the President, with around 73 percent of Americans supporting requirements that immigrants be able to support themselves financially.

    They are BANKRUPTING our schools and healthcare systems.

    They overbreed and have NO means to pay for 6-8 kids.

    Send them back!

    We do not have affordable housing for American citizens.

    They are taking over OUR neighborhoods.

    We have millions homeless in our streets!

    Stop bringing these people here and ramp up deportations!

    Our housing will free up, our jobs will free up, our schools will not be overcrowded, the billions in costs of healthcare and welfare for these FOREIGNERS is bankrupting us!

    Crime will go down, car accidents will go down, theft, jail, prison, court, rape, murder! Get 'em out!
