Trump Administration Announces Bad News For Migrants Living Off Of Government Benefits

There has been a large public outcry against President Donald Trump's plans to secure the borders and implement more stringent vetting procedures. The president has been making good on his campaign promises, and has his detractors in an uproar. He may not be done with immigrants yet — plans may be in the works to weed out any immigrants from coming to the U.S. who would be dependent on public assistance, and to rescind the visas of working immigrants who haven’t adhered to U.S. immigration laws. It’s unclear if the drafts found circulating are actually from the White House; if they are, it means more big changes are in the works.

The president's 'America First' goal has allegedly prompted an executive draft focused on keeping immigrants from being a burden on the taxpayer. The draft would turn away visa applicants who would become dependent upon social services. In addition, those who are already here and living off the welfare system could be deported.

The title of one draft is “Executive Order on Protecting Taxpayer Resources by Ensuring Our Immigration Laws Promote Accountability and Responsibility.” Drafts of the action have been circulated, but at this point the White House isn't confirming whether they're authentic, if they'll be changed or if they'll definitely be signed.

If the drafts are part of the president's plan of action, the administration's goal seems to be to ensure immigrants living in the U.S. legally would be largely ready to enter the work force and contribute to the country's economy.

“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,” said one of the drafts obtained by The Post.

Another order draft is circulating under the title, "Executive Order on Protecting American Jobs and Workers by Strengthening the Integrity of Foreign Worker Visa Programs.” This one would rescind work visa provisions for foreign nationals who violate immigration laws.
