Trump Signs Order Cracking Down on Welfare-Dependent Legal Immigration

JOHN BINDER 23 May 2019

President Trump signed a presidential memorandum on Thursday cracking down on welfare-dependent legal immigration to the United States in an effort to protect American taxpayers.

The order signed by Trump will enforce existing 1996 laws known as the “Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act” and “Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act” which were signed by then-President Bill Clinton. The order ensures that federal agencies will enforce the existing 1996 laws which seek to save American taxpayers by having their public welfare funding benefits reimbursed when they are used by a legal immigrant.

The first function of the order mandates that a family member or business sponsor of a legal immigrant looking to permanently resettle in the U.S. is responsible for paying back the welfare costs previously used by that immigrant.

For example, if a visa holder has used $10,000 in food stamp benefits while living in the U.S., when a family member sponsors them for a green card, that family member will be notified of the legal immigrant’s welfare costs to taxpayers and obligated to pay back the amount.

If the sponsor of a legal immigrant does not pay the welfare cost, the Treasury Offset Program will take the money out of the sponsor’s taxes for that year. Federal officials said implementation of this order would begin in September.

A senior administration official told Breitbart News that the order to enforce Clinton’s 1996 law will drive down welfare-dependent legal immigration to the U.S. which has cost American taxpayers billions over the years.

“This is a historic, transformative action to restore the foundational principle of U.S. immigration law: that those seeking to join our society must support themselves financially,” the official said.

“This executive action will dramatically curb ‘welfare tourism’ and protect U.S. benefits for U.S. families,” the official continued. “It will also ensure that immigrant sponsors cannot continue the practice of bringing in large numbers of welfare-dependent immigrants: because they will be financially liable. Congress passed these laws – but they were effectively never used. Now they will be.”

The second function of the order ensures that the income a sponsor to a legal immigrant is taken into consideration when a legal immigrant is applying for federal welfare.

Currently, only the income of legal immigrants is considered by federal agencies when the national is applying for public benefits. Under the rules set out by Clinton’s 1996 law, the Trump administration will make certain that the income of both the legal immigrant and their sponsor is considered when applying for benefits.

“Newcomers will not be able to live on free federal healthcare, housing, and other welfare at taxpayer expense,” the senior official said.

A senior administration official said Trump’s order also will help prevent illegal aliens from obtaining federal welfare benefits.

Other countries, like MEXICO, will not allow the poor, sick, refugee, criminal or useless into their countries.

ONLY the USA allows such people in and also does not secure its border.

In MEXICO you can not immigrate their unless you are well off and are at a HIGHER standard than their "well off".

Should just shut down all immigration for the next few years.

According to two different sources, Trump will marshal the Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act and the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, both enacted in 1996. An administration official noted with a bit of glee that the latter became law with the support of then-Sen. Joe Biden.

“It always seemed like a no-brainer. Biden voted for it. This is a Clinton-era law,” the aide said. “This is about enforcing what is already on the books. We are saying if you are willing to sponsor someone, you have to be responsible. You can’t just bring in everybody. You have to be judicious.”Provisions with the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 state that those who sponsor immigrants to the U.S. are legally liable for any public benefits the immigrant they sponsor goes on to consume. Trump's memorandum will direct agencies to create specific guidance for state agencies with an aim to implement the policy's enforcement by December 2019.

The policy will require states to provide the names of immigrants drawing benefits to federal agencies before a bill is then issued to the sponsor. If the sponsor does not pay the bill, a notice will be sent to the Treasury Department and the amount will be withheld from a sponsor's tax return, the official said.

The move is reportedly meant to discourage would-be sponsors from signing onto any potential immigrant who will apply for public benefits. The memorandum also will direct agencies to factor in a sponsor's income when an immigrant applies for public benefits, a move which will likely reduce the number of immigrants able to qualify for benefits.

A White House fact sheet noted that "78 percent of households headed by a non-citizen with no more than a high school education use at least one welfare program," and that "58 percent of all households headed by a non-citizen use at least one welfare program."

Trump's memorandum is part of a broader push within the administration to orient the U.S. toward a more hardline immigration stance.

The president released an immigration plan last week that would move toward a “merit-based” immigration system, which would prioritize skilled highly skilled workers over migrants with family members living here.

The immigration process is not that complicated. To do this, you just need to find a good immigration lawyer and fill out the necessary forms. I can advise you a site where there are convenient tools for managing immigration forms. Here is the link https://usa-immigrations.com/form/form-i-485-or-application-to-register-permanent-residence-or-adjust-status/ . Try it, in my opinion this is a good option
