Now, this will do more to eliminating illegal immigration than anything else, including a wall that costs American taxpayers billions of dollars and increases the size of the central government in border patrol agents. A leaked draft of an executive order by President Donald Trump indicates that he is looking to eliminate the welfare state for illegals, which is nothing more than dangling a carrot in front of them to cross the southern border on the American taxpayers' dime.
The Washington Post reports:
The Trump administration is considering a plan to weed out would-be immigrants who are likely to require public assistance, as well as to deport when possible immigrants already living in the United States who depend on taxpayer help, according to a draft executive order obtained by The Washington Post.
A second draft order under consideration calls for a substantial shake-up in the system through which the United States administers immigrant and nonimmigrant visas, with the aim of tightly controlling who enters the country and who can enter the workforce, and reducing the social services burden on U.S. taxpayers.
The drafts are circulating among administration officials, and it is unclear whether President Trump has decided to move forward with them or when he might sign them if he does decide to put them in place. The White House would not confirm or deny the authenticity of the orders, and White House officials did not respond to requests for comment about the drafts Monday and Tuesday.
one of the drafts titled Executive Order on Protecting Taxpayer Resources by Ensuring Our Immigration Laws Promote Accountability and Responsibility" reads, Our countrys 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."
While the Post claims that the EO "provides no evidence to support the claim that immigrant households are more likely to use welfare benefits," the reality is that has already been covered previously as the Obama administration worked with Mexico to advertise and provide such benefits to illegals in the States.
The Trump administration would seek to deny admission to any alien who is likely to become a public charge and to develop standards for determining whether an alien is deportable . . . for having become a public charge within five years of entry."
Another EO titled Executive Order on Protecting American Jobs and Workers by Strengthening the Integrity of Foreign Worker Visa Programs calls for eliminating the jobs magnet that the administration claims is driving illegal immigration to the United States. That is welfare.
The unlawful employment of aliens has had a devastating impact on the wages and jobs of American workers, especially low-skilled, teenage, and African American and Hispanic workers, the draft order reads.
Angela Maria Kelley, an immigration expert at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank said, Hes loaded his anti-immigrant Uzi and is firing off another round. This time hes aiming at U.S. citizen kids who have an undocumented parent, and depending how broad the reach of his order, he could deport kids who have received reduced lunches in school. Its stunning the depth of disruption and chaos he seems hellbent on inflicting on our communities.
However, Zero Hedge reminds us of the past.
Seemingly following the proposals of Bill Clinton (and Ron Paul), The Washington Post reports that a leaked document shows the Trump administration is planning to crackdown on current, and would-be, immigrants who are likely to require public assistance.
After Bill Clinton received a standing ovation for suggesting crackdown on immigrant welfare
We are a nation of immigrants.. but we are a nation of laws
Our nation is rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country
Illegal immigrants take jobs from citizens or legal immigrants, they impose burdens on our taxpayers
That is why we are doubling the number of border guards, deporting more illegal immigrants than ever before, cracking down on illegal hiring, barring benefits to illegal aliens, and we will do more to speed the deportation of illegal immigrants arrest for crimes
It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws that has occurred in the last few years.. and we must do more to stop it.
Ron Paul offered similar advice earlier this week. He wrote:
Remove the welfare magnet that attracts so many to cross the border illegally, stop the 25 year US war in the Middle East, and end the drug war that incentivizes smugglers to cross the border.
The various taxpayer-funded programs that benefit illegal immigrants in the United States, such as direct financial transfers, medical benefits, food assistance, and education, cost an estimated $100 billion dollars per year. That is a significant burden on citizens and legal residents. The promise of free money, free food, free education, and free medical care if you cross the border illegally is a powerful incentive for people to do so. It especially makes no sense for the United States government to provide these services to those who are not in the US legally.
These are unsubstantiated draft from the Post. They have been know to provide fake news in the past. The White House has neither confirmed nor denied the drafts as authentic. Time will tell, but this certainly sounds like the Donald Trump we heard on the campaign trail and the removal of illegals from the welfare system is a step in the right direction. If we could only start thinking the same way about the entire welfare system, we'd be in good shape.
What America ends up with are millions of the scum of other countries. Most can't read so they'll have to learn to do that before they speak English. Most haven't seen a bath tub and many are looking for a new haven in which to commit crime.
The wording of the Executive Order says he wants to deport legal immigrants on welfare. He doesn't need an excuse to deport illegal immigrants if we catch them.
Last year, when thousands of Mexican and Central American invaders were riding that locomotive to the Texas border, the next connection for those on board was Uncle Sap’s Gravy Train. Bring your kids, your teen age gang members, find a place to squat and start collecting benefits. You can send for your parents and uncle and aunts later for “family reunification.” That’s how Europe fell to the Muslims.
Draining several swamps at once !
Common sense approach by the President but there shouldn’t be a leaker in the WH!

Deport their asses.
Cut out anchor babies of illegals..that is a huge problem.
But STOP THE LEAK!
Just do it!
Yes, they were getting off the unmarked buses with brand new $100 bills in their hands at the truck stops around here. The manager of the truckstop said he had to keep LOTS of cash on hand daily because they needed change for their purchases to break the $100 bills.
(we have a good tea party group here - they investigate a lot of stuff)
Taking American tax payer money in the form of entitlements and sending it back home to thier families, buying food and other items filling up drums and sending them back home. The rats have knowingly allowed this and much more to go on for years
Americans should stop their coming to give birth for citizenship. Country of parents should determine a child’s citizenship.
Wait! Michael Weiner thinks he’s going to fast.
“immigrants already living in the United States who depend on taxpayer help,”
The word is “parasite”
I saw the words “Washington Post reports...” and “leaked,” and that was enough to conclude there’s no reason to believe a word of this.
Tell the AG to file a suit against the misinterpretation of the baby anchor law/amendment.
One parent must be a US citizen, or, at least here legally.

Issue an International Arrest Warrant for George Soros!
Created by A.B. on January 21, 2017
Sign This Petition:
Needs 99,355 signatures by February 20, 2017 to get a response from the White House.
George Soros is a menace to the free world and stands in the way of making America great again. He is guilty of the following crimes:
1) Financially supports open sedition in major American cities resulting in millions of dollars of property damage as well as loss of life. 2) Attempts to manipulate democratic elections by donating millions of dollars to his preferred candidates. 3) Seeks to curtail American sovereignty. In his own words: The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States ... Changing [the] attitude and policies of the United States remains my top priority. 4) Is a currency manipulator. Soros initiated a British financial crisis by dumping 10 billion sterling, forcing the devaluation of the currency and gaining a billion-dollar profit.
Enforce eVerify is the other part of the equation. No benefits, no work, no magnet.
Of course minmum wage concept might become meaningless as there show be an overall increase in wages anyway.
Win - Win.
I think we need one more justice on our side...kennedy doesnt count..even Roberts is a wildcard
