The Trump administration just announced they are re-enforcing the public charge rule that could deny green cards for immigrants who use public benefits. The public charge rule has been around for 100 years but hasn’t been enforced in the last 25 years.
“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. Throughout our history, self-sufficiency has been a core tenet of the American dream.”
“Self-reliance, industriousness, and perseverance laid the foundation of our nation and have defined generations of hardworking immigrants seeking opportunity in the United States ever since. Through the enforcement of the public charge inadmissibility law, we will promote these long-standing ideals and immigrant success.”
“Through the public charge rule, President Trump’s administration is reinforcing the ideals of self-sufficiency and personal responsibility ensuring immigrants are able to support themselves and become successful here in America.”
The key part of the new rule is called the “public charge” rule:

The left is going ballistic on this new move by the Trump administration to take away incentives for illegal immigration.
President Trump is doing everything he can to stop the economic parasites from coming to America for the generous freebies.
Cuccinelli also spoke out about the ICE raids:
Acting USCIS chief Ken Cuccinelli says “criminal investigations” resulting from recent ICE workplace immigration raids “are still ongoing.” “You can expect to see more of that as part of the message of this administration.”
“We’re going to enforce the law.”
