Donald Trump signs order cracking down on welfare for legal immigrants

May 23, 2019

  While all the hullabaloo in the media and with the Democrats today has focused on the meeting Donald Trump cancelled with the Democrats on infrastructure another story slid under the radar. Donald Trump signed a memorandum today which will crack down on legal immigrants collecting welfare.

  Here is more:

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 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.

“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.

  When the Democrats stop this latest round of whining over the 2016 election you can rest assured they are not going to be happy. The usual cries of racism and heartlessness are sure to come but the interesting part of this order is that it is simply calling for the laws Bill Clinton signed to be enforced.

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.

  But of course the Democrats are going to conveniently forget about that while they are blasting the President and the mainstream media will not bother to call the Democrats out on it.

      Yeah, a little good news for a change! I think you are right about a possible doc dump tonight. The AG report is supposed to be this month and time is running out.

    “WHAT!” enforce an existing Law! oh my. 😬
    Queen P had already set the stage of what ‘in their distorted minds’ their meeting w/ POTUS Trump would entail (she had announced an 1 hr previous accusing him of “coving up” something ~ PysCo projection) and it had nothing to do with the ‘real’ meeting.
    These dems are so far gone – proving out that people can be ‘made insane’ and ‘totally unbalanced’ by consuming Lies daily! – that they are a menace to the mental, spiritual and physical health of America and ‘real Americans’!
    Just as the “usurpers” passed laws & devised their dastardly plans of deconstructing America, Trump is being ‘transparent’, using what the traitors did sign and make it benefit the People, rather than ruin them!

      .. seems I restated somethings I’d left on a previous comment re P 🤭
      But, to add Re: TDS
      “Simply put, Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a illness that hard left liberals, anti-trump fiends, and UNprogressives have. These are very hateful people who cannot have reasonable arguments or conversations about common sense issues. If you encounter someone with Trump Derangement Syndrome, you should go easy on them, they’ve been fed false propaganda [“false” propaganda’? duh] and false fallacies. Counter them with Love.”
      🤣 yeah right!
      That’s a nice thought to ‘counter them w/ love’ (notice they don’t state God’s Love – which is the only kind of “real Love” – unselfish that can control them)!
      Even P’s daughter stated: “My mother will ‘cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding’.”
      Realizing this is wise! be ‘aware’
      1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

        You really cannot reason with them, they have been indoctrinated and they have made up their minds. It does not matter if you throw facts at them because they simply will not listen.
