Skip to comments.Trump Administration to Require Immigrants to Support Themselves
Posted on 09/09/2018 11:37:00 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
A long-anticipated plan to enforce the largely ignored public charge provisions of the nations immigration laws that require prospective immigrants and visa holders to be able to support themselves without relying on government aid could be unveiled by the Trump administration as soon as this month.
A source close to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) rulemaking process who requested anonymity said that proposed regulations will be published this fall, and likely this month, defining the phrase public charge under Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The upcoming change was previously reported in the media, but usually with little indication of when the change was expected to surface.
Left-wing advocacy organizations have attacked any attempt to formally define public charge as cruel and xenophobic, aimed at drastically curtailing the flow of immigrants to the United States. But the lengths to which the new regulation will go remain to be seen.
Francis Cissna, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency within DHS, previewed the upcoming rule during an Aug. 15 event at the National Press Club in Washington that was hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies.

This is Already the Law of the Land!! President trump had to sign one of these when he sponsored his Wife, just like I did. Just ENFORCE existing Law.
Oh, the humanity!
That has been the law for decades, we just did not have a President willing to enforce it.
My sister is a big Lib andhonestly believes that immigrants do not receive assistance.
Such common sense! If I moved to France or Iraq or any other country I would NEVER expect them to foot my living bill. Their citizens come first.
If you can’t pay your way, stay away.
That was the deal when my Dad came here in 1926. No handouts.
This is Kryptonite to the left . Cutting out the free loaders means an end to importing fools who vote for them. We’ve only seen a fraction of the leftist insanity that this move will cause. Gotta love it!
That has always been the policy. Accept for refugees.
The Democrats want us to take care of them.
Its raaacisf to expect immigrants to contribute to the country.
Cause as yall know, its really a melanin problem.
While were at it some 3rd,4th ..5th generation citizens need to learn to support themselves as well.
But first things first.
“My sister is a big Lib andhonestly believes that immigrants do not receive assistance.”
Then, enforcing this law as it’s already written should be no problem for them. All good.
[My sister is a big Lib andhonestly believes that immigrants do not receive assistance.]
Liberals live in their own reality. That makes it easier for them.
But we're talking about a marriage, this article is indicating the stand alone immigrant.
Which ALSO should be an existing law not being enforced.
No longer the “Land Of Free Stuff” ?
