Trump Administration targets legal migrants who get food aid – BBC News

August 12, 2019 – BBC News

President Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump’s administration is to make it more difficult for poorer legal migrants to extend their visas or gain permanent resident status (a green card).

The rule targets migrants who rely on public benefits, such as food aid or public housing, for more than a year.

Their applications will be rejected if the government decides they are likely to rely on public assistance in future.

The rule change would reinforce “ideals of self-sufficiency, officials said.

The new regulation, known as a “public charge rule”, was published in the Federal Register on Monday and will take effect on 15 October.

    Exxon here get so much corporate welfare that they getting oil at a fraction of what they would cost in a different country.

    Trump should the European South Africans go back home as they are joining white supremacist groups in the USA to conduct conspiracies of genocide against the non-white populations?

    Trump, it’s people like you who will create future Mandelas and Malemas right here in the Caribbean with your racist garbage.

      Trump have tax cuts to the rich, and also allowed foreign companies immunity from charges if they engage in foreign corruption, which gives multi-national companies such as Exxon-Mobil, the license to bribe foreign governments and engage in corruption—how is this not relevant to the neo-con Trump administration which demonises non-whites for working in farms for a living?

      Also, the main reason why America is becoming hateful against immigrants can be summed up by this South Park cartoon clip which aired during the 2008 financial crisis, and relevant to this day:

    YOU GUYS HAVE IT ALL WRONG WHEN IT COMES TO TRUMP. HE IS REPRESENTING THE PEOPLE. WE ARE TIRED OF FREELOADERS AND WE CAN NOT AFFORD IT ANY MORE. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION HAS COST THE U.S. ALMOST 170 BILLION THIS YEAR (AND THE YEAR IS NOT OVER)
    THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE POOR, RACIAL MOTIVES, OR FAVORING ELITES.
    WE, AS U.S. CITIZENS, CAN NOT AFFORD TO SUPPORT 25 MILLION PEOPLE THAT HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER US BUT A HAND TO COLLECT A FREE CHECK. THAT CHECK IS COMING OUT OF MY POCKET AND THE POCKET OF MANY MORE HARD WORKING AMERICANS.
