    New rules can deny green cards for immigrants on food stamps

    News
    by: Associated Press Posted: Aug 12, 2019 / 11:58 AM CDT / Updated: Aug 12, 2019 / 11:58 AM CDT

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration announced Monday that it is moving ahead with one of its most aggressive steps to restrict legal immigration, denying green cards to many immigrants who use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers or other forms of public assistance.
    Federal law already requires those seeking green cards and legal status to prove they will not be a burden to the U.S. — a “public charge” —but the new rules detail a broader range of programs that could disqualify them.
    Much of President Donald Trump’s effort to crack down on illegal immigration has been in the spotlight, but this rule change targets people who entered the United States legally and are seeking permanent status. It’s part of a push to move the U.S. to a system that focuses on immigrants’ skills instead of emphasizing the reunification of families.
    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers will now weigh public assistance along with other factors such as education, household income and health to determine whether to grant legal status.
    The rules will take effect in mid-October. They don’t apply to U.S. citizens, even if the U.S. citizen is related to an immigrant who is subject to them.
    The acting director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, Ken Cuccinelli, said the rule change fits with the Republican president’s message.
    “We want to see people coming to this country who are self-sufficient,” Cuccinelli said. “That’s a core principle of the American dream. It’s deeply embedded in our history, and particularly our history related to legal immigration.”
    Immigrants make up a small percentage of those who get public benefits. In fact, many are ineligible for public benefits because of their immigration status.
    But advocates worry the rules will scare immigrants into not asking for help. And they are concerned the rules give too broad an authority to decide whether someone is likely to need public assistance at any time, giving immigration officials the ability to deny legal status to more people.
    On average, 544,000 people apply annually for green cards, with about 382,000 falling into categories that would be subject to this review, according to the government.
    Guidelines in use since 1999 referred to a public charge as someone primarily dependent on cash assistance, income maintenance or government support for long-term institutionalization.
    Under the new rules, the Department of Homeland Security has redefined a public charge as someone who is “more likely than not” to receive public benefits for more than 12 months within a 36-month period. If someone has two benefits, that is counted as two months. And the definition has been broadened to include Medicaid, housing assistance and food assistance under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.
    Following publication of the proposed rules last fall, Homeland Security received 266,000 public comments, more than triple the average number for a rule change at the agency, and it made a series of amendments to the final rules as a result.
    For example, women who are pregnant and on Medicaid or who need public assistance will not be subject to the new rules during the pregnancy and for 60 days after the birth of the baby.
    The Medicare Part D low-income subsidy won’t be considered a public benefit. And public benefits received by children up until age 21 won’t be considered. Nor will emergency medical assistance, school lunch programs, foster care or adoption, student loans and mortgages, food pantries, homeless shelters or disaster relief.
    Cuccinelli said the comments resulted in changes that “we think it made a better, stronger rule.”
    Green card hopefuls will be required to submit three years of federal tax returns in addition to a history of employment. And if immigrants have private health insurance that will weigh heavily in their favor.
    Active U.S. military members are exempt. So are refugees or asylum seekers, and the rules would not be applied retroactively, officials said. But the Trump administration also has moved to drastically reduce asylum in the U.S.
    The administration recently tried to effectively end the protections at the U.S.-Mexico border before the effort was blocked by a court. It has sent more than 30,000 asylum seekers mostly from Central America back to Mexico wait out their immigration cases.
    According to an Associated Press analysis of census data, low-income immigrants who are not citizens use Medicaid, food aid, cash assistance and Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, at a lower rate than comparable low-income native-born adults.
    In general, immigrants are a small portion of those receiving public benefits. For example, non-citizen immigrants make up only 6.5 percent of all those participating in Medicaid. More than 87 percent of participants are native-born. The same goes for food assistance: Immigrants make up only 8.8 percent of recipients, and more than 85 percent of participants are native-born.
    The new public assistance threshold, taken together with higher requirements for education, work skills and health, will make it more difficult for immigrants to qualify for green cards, advocates say.
    “Without a single change in the law by Congress, the Trump public charge rules mean many more U.S. citizens are being and will be denied the opportunity to live together in the U.S. with their spouses, children and parents,” said Ur Jaddou, a former Citizenship and Immigration Services chief counsel who’s now director of the DHS Watch run by an immigrant advocacy group. “These are not just small changes. They are big changes with enormous consequences for U.S. citizens.”
    The new rules come at a time of increased criticism over Trump’s hardline policies and his rhetoric.
    On Aug. 3, 22 people were killed and dozens were injured in a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, a border city that has become the face of the migration crisis. The shooting suspect told authorities he targeted Mexicans in the attack.
    Critics contend Trump’s words have contributed to a combustible climate that has spawned death and violence, but Trump disagrees.

    Trump Ending Welfare-Dependent Immigration, Saving Billions – Leftists Meltdown

    August 12, 2019 Rebecca Diserio, Opinion Columnist
    President Donald Trump just caused a complete an utter meltdown of the Democrats and their cohorts as he announced a “new rule” on immigration which will go into effect immediately. It will save American taxpayers billions as it targets all immigrants who are or who have used welfare. You’re going to love this.

    U.S border agents continue to see a large number of illegal immigrant groups crossing the border. (U.S. Customs and Border Protection)President Trump is set to save American taxpayers billions of dollars as his administration announces a new rule on Monday that will essentially ban welfare-dependent immigrants from permanently resettling in the United States.
    A new regulation set to be published by the Trump administration will ensure that immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using subsidized healthcare services, food stamps, and public housing.

    President Trump is set to save American taxpayers billions of dollars as his administration announces a new rule on Monday that will essentially ban welfare-dependent immigrants from permanently resettling in the United States.A new regulation set to be published by the Trump administration will ensure that immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using subsidized healthcare services, food stamps, and public housing.“The regulation will 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,” Breitbart reports. The National Academies of Science released a report two years ago, noting that state and local American taxpayers are billed about $1,600 each year per immigrant to pay for their welfare, where immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households.A recent Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) study notes that about 63 percent of noncitizen households in the U.S. use at least one form of taxpayer-funded welfare, while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare. This means that noncitizen households use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born American households.In California — with the largest noncitizen population in the country at almost 11 million or nearly 30 percent of the state’s total population — more than seven-in-ten, or 72 percent, of households headed by noncitizens are on at least one form of welfare. Compare that to the findings that only about seven-in-twenty, or 35 percent, of native-born households in California are on welfare.

    Look, this isn’t a new concept, and it isn’t racist. Most countries who have healthy immigration maintain similar regulations. You must be able to provide for yourself or have family members who will officially be responsible for you until you do, to gain entry into the said country.Yet, we have leftists in meltdown mode. Right away, a far-left website wrote an article titled, “Trump Gets More Racist With Move To Take Food Stamps And Housing Away From LEGAL Immigrants.” That’s right, immediately the leftist played the race card.“Trump and his Administration just evil people along with McConnell and other Republicans who refuse to stand up to Trump and McConnell!” tweeted Sharon Caliendo.

    Well, the majority of Americans are extremely grateful the president is taking this action. “This is exactly why Americans elected @realDonaldTrump as @POTUS The American tax payers has been unnecessarily getting extorted of their hard earned $ for decades. It’s about time common sense & “doing what’s right’ prevails,” tweeted “Lil Rodney Dangerfield.”

    “I can’t wait to hear all the progressive, liberal ass Democrats cry about this one. The only reason they cry is because these are their future Democrat voters. It all about the vote!!!” tweeted Gary McClain.

    Trump Administration to Deny Green Cards to Immigrants on the Public Dole


    Published 14 hours ago on Aug 12, 2019



    Buzzfeed reported on Monday that the Trump administration unveiled a new policy that will deny green cards to immigrants who use or are likely to use public benefits.

    According to a filing of the policy in the Federal Register, this policy is set to take place in two months.

    This rule was originally released this past September.

    A step in the right direction, this move represents a solid effort by the Trump administration to curb immigration and is expected to face several legal challenges.

    Traditionally, the Immigration and Nationality Act enabled the government to deny permanent residency to immigrants who were deemed to be a financial burden on society or considered as a “public charge.” In other words, they’re relying on government benefits for financial support.

    Under this new rule, the government has the power to determine if someone is a public charge, thus enabling officials to no longer give out green cards to “those who have used or will likely use the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP food stamps); Section 8 housing vouchers and assistance; public housing; or most forms of Medicaid.”

    Sarah Pierce, an analyst at the Migration Policy Institute, claims that “This rule is the administration’s attempt to unilaterally implement a broad immigration reform. It will likely shift immigration away from Latin America and towards Europe, while disproportionately disadvantaging women, children, and the elderly.”

    Analysis from the Migration Policy Institute found that more than 4 million noncitizens were in families obtaining SNAP benefits from 2014 to 2016. According to the Department of Agriculture’s most recent numbers, more than 39 million people participated in this program in June 2018. However, there was no breakdown of these numbers by immigration status.

    USCIS Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli declared “For over a century, the public charge ground of inadmissibility has been part of our nation’s immigration laws. President Trump has delivered on his promise to the American people to enforce long-standing immigration law by defining the public charge inadmissibility ground that has been on the books for years.”

    Although Trump has not scored many wins on immigration so far, this does look like a solid first step. He will likely campaign on this issue and further reforms based on how popular the immigration issue is among GOP voters.

    President Donald J. Trump is Ensuring Non-Citizens Do Not Abuse Our Nation's Public Benefit


    Issued on: August 12, 2019



    All News Quote

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


    PROTECTING PUBLIC RESOURCES: The Trump Administration is taking action to help ensure that non-citizens in this country are self-sufficient and not a strain on public resources.

    • The Trump Administration is releasing a final rule that will protect American taxpayers, preserve our social safety net for vulnerable Americans, and uphold the rule of law.
    • This action will help ensure that if aliens want to enter or remain in the United States they must support themselves, and not rely on public benefits.
    • An alien who receives public benefits above a certain threshold is known as a “public charge.”
      • Aliens will be barred from entering the United States if they are found likely to become public charges.
      • Aliens in the United States who are found likely to become public charges will also be barred from adjusting their immigration status.

    • President Trump is enforcing this longstanding law to prevent aliens from depending on public benefit programs.
      • The Immigration and Nationality Act makes clear that those seeking to come to the United States cannot be a public charge.

    • For many years, this clear legal requirement went largely unenforced, imposing vast burdens on American taxpayers. Now, public charge law will finally be utilized.

    ENCOURAGING SELF-SUFFICIENCY: Self-sufficiency has long been a basic principle of our Nation’s immigration laws that has enjoyed widespread support.

    • Public charge has been a part of United States immigration law for more than 100 years as a ground of inadmissibility.


    • Congress passed and President Bill Clinton signed two bipartisan bills in 1996 to help stop aliens from exploiting public benefits.
      • This included the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act and the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act.
      • As Congress made clear at the time, it is our national policy that aliens should “not depend on public resources to meet their needs.”

    • Americans widely agree that individuals coming to our country should be self-sufficient, with 73 percent in favor of requiring immigrants to be able to support themselves financially.

    PRESERVING THE SOCIAL SAFETY NET: We must ensure that non-citizens do not abuse our public benefit programs and jeopardize the social safety net needed by vulnerable Americans.

    • Large numbers of non-citizens and their families have taken advantage of our generous public benefits, limited resources that could otherwise go to vulnerable Americans.
    • 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.
    • Half of all non-citizen headed households include at least one person who uses Medicaid.

    Does this include pregnant aliens, who are getting Medicaid funded deliveries all over the country? A huge portion of welfare given to immigrants is for childbirth and raising their U.S. born children.

    If these illegals and foreigners do NOT pay their medical bills or any of their bills...send them to the Collection Agency!

    Get that on their record as a deportable offense.


    Stop TRANSFERRING their unpaid childbirth and medical bills onto the U.S. taxpayers!


    I do not want to pay anybody's Student Loans, Mortgage Default Payments, Unpaid Medical Bills, Car Loans, or any other DEBTS racked up by these freeloaders!
