White House insiders report that President Trump and his advisors are quietly putting together a plan that would affect the ability of immigrants legally in the U.S. to get green cards or to achieve citizenship. Senior White House advisor Stephen Miller is the architect of the proposed changes, which would allow immigration officials to deny citizenship and green card applications from those who have legally accepted help from a wide array of programs that include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the Affordable Care Act, Social Security and Medicaid.
Discriminatory and Wrong
The new restrictions are designed to penalize legal immigrants who are attempting to remain in the country legally and who are complying with all rules established by the U.S. government. More importantly, these proposed restrictions are intended to depict immigrants as leeches who drain societal and governmental resources without giving anything in return. In fact, immigrants typically pay much more into the government in taxes than they ever receive in return. By targeting legal immigrants for these restrictions, the Trump administration has demonstrated its bias against both legal and illegal immigrants in the United States.
