Illegal border crossing has dropped significantly due to President Trump enforcing the law. With THIS statement, it will drop even further…
You’ve gotta work if you come here.
In other words:
‘No más‘ free rides.
President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years.
At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ‘the time has come’ for ‘new immigration rules’ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years.
He said his administration would be ‘putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.’
Watch the awesome statement at the 46:15 mark:
It’s about time!
Imagine, having immigrants as a benefit to the economy instead of a drain.
What a concept!
Many non-citizens — at a much greater rate than American citizens — benefit from some sort of social program.
Some of these rules have already been on the books, but, just like illegal immigration, President Trump is going to actually ensure that there is enforcement of the laws.
Trump’s plan would also allow the US to refuse entry to people who are likely to need state assistance by becoming a ‘public charge’.
Such a concept has been a feature in American law for many years, but the new president is expected to ensure it is enforced as well as strengthening restrictions.
According to Fox News, the president is expected to refer to a Center for Immigration Studies report from 2015, which found that 51 percent of households headed by a non-US citizen were benefiting from some kind of state aid.
In US-born citizens, that figure was found to be 30 percent.
