Citizenship chief: Migrant 'green cards' can be evaluated on welfare use

Trump administration makes it easier to deny green cards to immigrants

Trump admin rolls out new rule to screen out potential immigrant welfare use

The rule will be dated August 14 in the Federal Register and will go into effect 60 days later.

The DHS estimate was far lower than an analysis by Boundless Immigration, a tech company that shepherds immigration through the USA immigration system.

But the new rule stands to have its most dramatic impact on the numbers and demographics of those permitted to immigrate to the United States through a vast array of new criteria to assess whether an individual is "likely" to someday become a public charge.

The changes won't go into effect until October.

"The heavy use of welfare by immigrant households is not the result of laziness or some other moral shortcoming; immigrants are as likely to work as native-born Americans", Krikorian said.

Foreigners looking to come to the U.S. generally have to prove they have enough income to prevent them from becoming a "public charge".

The Trump administration is cracking down on green cards for immigrants who've spent more than a year on food stamps, Medicaid or other public benefits designated for low-income residents.

"This latest racially-motivated policy is a painful reminder that behind [President] Donald Trump's bluster, bureaucrats like [top adviser] Stephen Miller will stop at nothing to attack immigrants and destroy our legal immigration system", Hincapié said in astatement. The rule, Sandweg says, is part of the Trump administration's broader effort to reduce legal immigration.

But the rule also grants wide discretion to immigration officials handling applications to determine if at some point the immigrant is likely to become dependent on such programs. The definition of public benefits is cash aide including Supplemental Security Income, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), most forms of Medicaid, and a variety of public housing programs, the fact sheet said.

"There are hundreds of millions of people who want to move to the United States, and this rule ensures that we allow in only those who will be able to pay their own bills", Krikorian said.

"This news is a cruel new step toward weaponizing programs that are intended to help people by making them, instead, a means of separating families and sending immigrants and communities of color one message: you are not welcome here", NILC executive director Marielena Hincapie said in a statement Monday.

Officials can take into account an applicant's financial resources, health, education, skills, family status and age. A response was awaited to from the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which will be the DHS agency using the new rule, about official estimates.

Ken Cuccinelli serves as acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services office for the Trump Administration and as such, he led a White House briefing on Monday morning.

In a recent interview with CBN News, Cuccinelli said the White House crackdown aims to cut down on the potential economic burden of immigrants entering the country.
