    Feds to warn immigrants about welfare use | Officers handling legal immigration cases

    Feds to warn immigrants about welfare use
    Officers handling legal immigration cases will now warn people that they are under an obligation to support themselves rather than end up on the public dole, under a new policy implemented Friday by acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli.
    The warning will be issued both to the immigrant and his or her sponsor, who under the law has signed an agreement not to let the immigrant become a public charge.

    Feds to warn immigrants about welfare use

    Feds to warn immigrants about welfare use USCIS chief says sponsors will pay back 'every dollar' immigrants use

    Officers handling legal immigration cases will now warn people that they are under an obligation to support themselves rather than end up on the public dole, under a new policy implemented Friday by acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli.
    The warning will be issued both to the immigrant and his or her sponsor, who under the law has signed an agreement not to let the immigrant become a public charge.
    In the new warning, UCSIS officers will “remind” sponsors that they can — and now will — be asked to pay back “every dollar” of welfare that the immigrants take.

    “The president has made it a priority to ensure that every individual who seeks to come to the United States is self-sufficient, temporarily or permanently,” Mr. Cuccinelli said in a memo to agency employees.
    It’s the first major public move by Mr. Cuccinelli, who became acting director this week.


    It’s also one of the boldest steps by the agency, which gets less attention that the Border Patrol or deportation officers, but which is nonetheless central to Mr. Trump’s immigration plans.
    That immigrants are supposed to be able to support themselves has long been a part of federal policy, dating back to the very first comprehensive immigration laws enacted in the 1800s.
    But it’s been rarely enforced.
    The Washington Times reported in 2016 that of five major countries for immigration to the U.S., just three people were cited for being public charges in the years from 2013 to 2015. Immigration judges sustained just one of those cases.
    USCIS is also working on new regulations that would expand the cases where migrants could be denied immigration passes or new visas if they become a public burden.
    Under Clinton-era rules, the government only looks at a narrow set of welfare programs when determining if an immigrant has become a public charge. The Trump plan, still a work in progress, would add food stamps, public housing and long-term institutionalized care to the list.
    That plan would save the government nearly $20 billion over a decade, the government argued in its draft proposal.
    Immigrant-rights activists have complained that the rules would make it tougher for poor migrants to gain a foothold in the U.S., effectively giving a leg up to more successful immigrants.

    Pay back every dollar including their child birth and healthcare!

    We are not their baby daddy!

    I argue that we have our own "poor" people to take care of and we do not need the entire world dumped on our backs!

    They can go be poor back home or get on birth control and get out of poverty themselves!

    Most illegals collect welfare through their "citizen" anchor babies. Pregnant illegals are never turned away when they show up for care and hospital delivery. Ending welfare to illegals would require ending it to their anchor babies, so not going to happen until these kids are rightfully designated non citizens.
