Millions Of Americans Just Got Bad News Regarding Trump's New Executive Order - Does It Have Your Support?

A new draft of an executive order shows that President Donald Trump has only started with his immigration crackdown, and plans to continue the efforts. In this new draft, it shows that the president's focus will be weeding out immigrants who would require public assistance, and tightly controlling immigrant work visas.

In the past, Trump has spoken to his chief advisor, Steve Bannon, about keeping successful, educated immigrants in the U.S. and allowing them to start businesses here. He spoke about an immigrant from India who graduated Harvard but was denied the opportunity to start his company in America, so the young man returned back to India and started a successful company. "We have to keep our talented people in this country.”

Likewise, Trump appears to want less promising immigrants gone. The plans are intended to reduce the burden on U.S. taxpayers. Immigrants who use U.S. social services such as food stamps and Medicaid eat up federal resources meant to be used for residents and those here legally.

In addition, the president plans to secure jobs for American workers who want them. By restricting immigrants and temporary laborers to the U.S., it will leave more positions open for citizens. According to the Trump administration, immigrants being imported to work for lower wages rob U.S. citizens of jobs, which contributes to U.S. unemployment rates.

Several drafts of the order, entitled “Executive Order on Protecting Taxpayer Resources by Ensuring Our Immigration Laws Promote Accountability and Responsibility,” have been obtained by the media, though none have at this point been signed. At this point, nothing is set in stone, and any part of the orders can change. But they seem to indicate the direction the president's plans are taking.

“Our country’s immigration laws are designed to protect American taxpayers and promote immigrant self-sufficiency. Yet households headed by aliens are much more likely than those headed by citizens to use Federal ­means-tested public benefits,” reads a draft of the order, according to the Washington Post.

The goal of the order is to 'deny admission to any alien who is likely to become a public charge' or to develop deportation standards for aliens who 'become a public charge within five years of entry'.
