Our President is a man of his word!
When he says he’s going to do something, you might as well set your clock by it because it’s going to happen.
Like the time 30 years ago when he told Oprah what he’d do if America ever got TOO bad. Watch that here.
And most recently, he just honored another huge campaign promise by dropping the hammer on immigrant welfare abuse!
That’s right, the Trump administration just moved to restrict visas and citizenship for immigrants on welfare!
This is absolutely huge!
Here are more details on the breaking story (which most of the Lamestream Media is of course not covering), this from the Washinton Examiner:
President Trump’s administration unveiled a new regulation to limit green cards and visas for immigrants who have received a various forms of welfare, the Department of Homeland Security announced Saturday.
“This proposed rule will implement a law passed by Congress intended to promote immigrant self-sufficiency and protect finite resources by ensuring that they are not likely to become burdens on American taxpayers,” DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said, per NBC.
The proposal is rooted in a federal law that restricts immigration for people “likely to become a public charge,” according to U.S. Customs and Immigration Services; a “public charge” is someone “primarily dependent on the government for subsistence.” A regulation promulgated in 1999 construed that law as applying only to cash benefits, NBC explained, but the new proposal would broaden the list of benefits.
“The [disqualifying] benefits generally represent the largest federal programs for low-income people by total expenditure that address basic living needs such as income, housing, food, and medical care,” according to a DHS spokeswoman.
That has been a priority of Attorney General Jeff Sessions for years, particularly when he was the top Republican on the Budget Committee during President Barack Obama’s tenure. Stephen Miller, a top communications aide when Sessions was in the Senate, is now a senior White House adviser.
“It is an explicit and unambiguous tenet in federal law that those granted entry into the U.S. must be able to support themselves financially,” Sessions’ team argued in 2013. In sum: Despite laws to the contrary, virtually no one is being turned away from the United States for relying on federal welfare.”
Immigrant advocates argue that it will harm poor immigrants, even those who already live in the U.S. with government assistance and have American citizens in their household.
“This is a radical proposal to do an end run around Congress,” Jackie Vimo, policy analyst at the National Immigration Law Center in Washington, told the Los Angeles Times in August. “This will close the door to anyone except white, English-speaking, wealthy immigrants.”
God bless you President Trump!
We can no longer be the world's piggy bank, we're broke!
It's time to right the ship!
