Trump admin to roll out restrictive new green card policy


IMMIGRATION OFFICIAL ANNOUNCING A NEW RULE MAKING IMMIGRANTS IN THIS COUNTRY LEGAL POSSIBLY INELIGIBLE FOR GREEN CARDS IF THEY ARE RECEIVING PUBLIC ASSISTANCE.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ADMINISTRATION IS REINFORCING THE IDEALS OF SELF-SUFFICIENCY AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. ENSURING THAT IMMIGRANTS ARE ABLE TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES AND BECOME SUCCESSFUL HERE IN AMERICA. I’M CERTAINLY NOT PREPARED TO TAKE ANYTHING DOWN OFF THE STATUE OF LIBERTY. WE HAVE A LONG HISTORY OF BEING ONE OF THE MOST WELCOMING NATIONS IN THE WORLD. MELISSA: WITH ME NOW IS THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION’S KELSEY BOLAR. YOU SAY THIS ISN’T THE FIRST TIME WE HAVE HAD THIS KIND OF A RULE IN PLACE.>>ABSOLUTELY. HI, MELISSA. I THINK EVERYBODY JUST NEEDS TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH WHEN IT COMES TO THIS POLICY. LOOK, THIS IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING THAT HAS EXISTED IN OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS FOR DECADES. WHAT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS DOING IN THIS CASE IS CLARIFYING THIS RULE BECAUSE THERE REALLY WASN’T THAT MUCH CLARITY BEFOREHAND. AND REALLY, THE MESSAGE IT IS SENDING IS THAT IF YOU’RE COMING TO THIS COUNTRY, IF YOU WANT TO IMMIGRATE HERE, YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO SUSTAIN YOURSELF AND NOT ADD TO OUR PUBLIC SPENDING, OUR DEBT PROBLEM, WHICH WE KNOW CONGRESS IS NOT VERY CAPABLE OF HANDLING THEMSELVES RIGHT NOW. LOOK, IT IS IMPORTANT TO POINT OUT WE ALSO STILL HAVE OUR ASYLUM PROCESS. WE ARE WELCOME TO REFUGEES. THOSE SYSTEMS DID NOT CHANGE. I THINK SOME OF THE OUTRAGE, THE PUBLIC BACKLASH AGAINST THIS NEW RULE IS REALLY MANUFACTURED. MELISSA: THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO IMMIGRATE FOR ECONOMIC REASONS; RIGHT? THAT’S WHAT THIS IS KIND OF ABOUT. IT’S INTERESTING IF YOU LOOK AT GERMANY FOR EXAMPLE, WHERE THEY HAVE THIS POLICY, AND THEY HAVE BEEN CRITICIZED AMONG THE MOST IN THE EU, THEY ARE TRYING TO GET PEOPLE THERE SO THEY CAN WORK, THEIR REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE BEING ABLE TO SUPPORT YOURSELF, ALREADY HAVING HEALTH INSURANCE, YOU HAVE TO PROVE YOU PURCHASED HEALTH INSURANCE FOR YOURSELF AND YOU HAVE TO SPEAK THE LANGUAGE. CAN YOU IMAGINE IF PRESIDENT TRUMP PILED ON ALL THREE OF THOSE STANDARDS AND SAID THAT IMMIGRANTS NEEDED TO HAVE THOSE AT THE SAME TIME? NOBODY IS YELLING AT MERKEL THAT SHE’S BEEN XEEN — XENOPHOBIC?>>AS IT RELATES TO IMMIGRATION POLICIES THAT WE SEE IN EUROPE, IN GERMANY, AS YOU JUST MENTIONED, DENMARK IS A REALLY INTERESTING COUNTRY TO ALSO LOOK AT BECAUSE ALTHOUGH THEY DID ELECT A NEW DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST PRIME MINISTER, SHE’S VERY TOUGH ON IMMIGRATION LAWS, FAR MORE TOUGH THAN WE ARE HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE CAPPING THE NUMBERS, AND WE HAVE TO REMEMBER, PUT THIS INTO PERSPECTIVE, THE UNITED STATES LETS IN MORE IMMIGRANTS THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. MELISSA: YEAH, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE SITUATION THAT WE SAW WITH THE I.C.E. RAIDS THAT WENT IN THE CHICKEN FACTORIES IN THE SOUTH? I KNOW ABOUT HALF OF THE PEOPLE THAT WERE PICKED UP WERE RELEASED FOR HUMANITARIAN REASONS SO THEY COULD GO HOME AND CARE FOR THEIR CHILDREN. AT THE SAME TIME, LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS SAYING THAT THIS WAS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO PROSECUTE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE RUNNING THOSE PLANTS. I MEAN, THE BUSINESSES WHERE — I’VE VISITED PLANTS LIKE THIS IN THE PAST. IT IS GRISLY, DIFFICULT WORK, AND THE IDEA THAT THEY WERE HIRING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS MAKES YOU THINK THAT THEY WERE EITHER, YOU KNOW, PAYING THEM LOWER WAGES OR THEY WANTED TO HIRE PEOPLE THAT WEREN’T IN THE POSITION POTENTIALLY TO COMPLAIN ABOUT, YOU KNOW, TERRIBLE WORK CONDITIONS, POSSIBLY. WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>RIGHT, WELL I DON’T THINK IT’S FAIR TO DEMONIZE I.C.E. AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS WHO ARE A PART OF THIS AS WE HAVE SEEN PLAY OUT IN THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS OR WEEK. THIS WAS PLANNED IN ADVANCE, AND LOOK, IF YOU COMMIT ANY OTHER CRIME IN THE UNITED STATES, AND YOU HAVE CHILDREN, YOU WILL AT LEAST TEMPORARILY BE SEPARATED FROM THEM. IT APPEARS THAT THEY DID HAVE PLANS IN PLACE WHERE THEY RELEASED THE PARENTS, IF THEY HAD SOLE CUSTODY OF THEIR CHILDREN. AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE CAN’T BE A SOVEREIGN NATION IF WE DON’T HAVE IMMIGRATION LAWS, AND THAT MEANS WE HAVE TO ENFORCE THEM. WE HAVE TO SEND THE MESSAGE THAT

  1. We all understand the current immigration laws need reform and be enforced. Problem is we Democrat’s don’t trust Trump is handling it. Republicans are betting on Trump to be re-elected. I am negative on that. We will find out 448 days from today.

  2. So everyone pays taxes but the benefits of EVERYONES taxes are to go only to American born citizens? That seems very, very wrong!!

  3. And then can we get back the 800 billion dollars bailout that we gave big banks on Wall Street?
    I am not saying that bankers should make their money honestly, thats just preposterous, but at least don't let them rob all the taxpayers blind!

  4. As a immigrant it would be a total embarrassment for me to be on any public assistant program, most of us are hard working people.

  5. Hes more worried about immigrants then the violence going on in our country wow just wow stupid game show host

  6. And NO ONE is mentioning that in order to draw a paycheck from a major corporation or anywhere for that matter, you must have a Social Security Number. They buy these illegally every day. It's a whole system that they have. The countries where these people are from have the same problems and issues no matter where on earth you find them, so if we take so many that THEY become a majority, what would common sense tell you that this country would become? People don't even consider this truth. They're too busy with their misplaced and unnecessary guilt to see that this country will be destroyed and I have proof…Pick and predominantly Mexican or South American community in the U.S., your choice. Now tell me that state of that community…..If you'd stop and think for one second, with a completely clear head. If the places in the U.S. where they live have the identical "Problems" of their host country, what happens when they are , say Half of the population? Get your heads out of the clouds before it's way too late.

  7. Yes, what about the Statue of Liberty words of immigration acceptance? Wonder how many of us would be here today if our ancestors were restricted in this manner.

  8. One thing is clear when we turning down all this undocumented immigrants other countries are taking advantage by taking all this workers ready to work no training needed because we got them trained

  9. Germany is not a country of immigrants like the United States so the comparison is apples to oranges. Germany also has considerably more social programs than the U.S., like free healthcare and employment leave for new mother and sometimes fathers to stay home with their newborn for three years, which is paid for by the working taxpayers. The benefits provided by Germany to people here are different and on another note, you can live in Germany for many, many years and never be a German citizen, so that is another difference.

  10. "but but we wanted to tackle illegal immigration" Lies lies lies and more despicable Republicans lies. Given I'm not an American citizen and would proudly wear a Visa Rejection from the Trump Administration, Restrictions on Green cards are wrong.

  11. I really harebrained Theory you have to rest one group of people in order to draw attention to another group of people that are doing something illegal why not just investigate how many illegal people there are interested people at the plant that run it

  12. So many green card spouse that are lazy or have terrible credit because they just max out credit cards have a new car they can't afford etc.

  13. Looks like trump punishing legal immigrants and ignoring problems
    With illegals and open borders. What the hell is he doing

  15. Amazon made $5.6 Billion dollars in 2017 and did Not pay federal taxes …. why not deport them?

    An immigrant working in the USA makes no more than $22,000 on average…. so the current adminstration is more concerned with $4,000 in income taxes VS. Amazon’s $5,600,000,000 dollars…. that doesn’t sound like a good plan😂

    Mind you Amazon hires a large amount of immigrant workers….. so you’re literally letting them fuel the fire….

  16. I wish we could add "must speak English fluently" to the legalization process. Too many have I had to work with that I couldn't talk to and explain how to do the job because of the language barrier.

  17. with everything this man is doing to preserve the union and combat illegals, he deserves to grab college girls headed to class by the p***y

  18. This isnt new Bill Clinton made this a law 20 years some years ago. Trump is inforcing the law already put in place.

  19. Hell yah… We need to regulate borders and tax spending. We cant fix the world with our tax money… Ante and kick in like the world. Be accountable for your home land..

  20. Yay! This is way too long overdue, our government leaders never enforce our laws and I hope they also get rid of this so called anchor baby law that doesn’t exist in our Constitution, and never did!

  21. They want to make it whites only land…. go trump?lets take our land vack!!
    Then let’s return all the Africans!! They’d have their own continent !!
    It’s only fair

  22. Please god let someone put a bullet through that lying racist tRump's head! (dear god, I'm sorry for such thoughts … NOT!)

  23. Migrants ….There has to be a work position that is in shortage .. find what it is .. train in that postion and speak english .. then enter legally .. thats it …

  24. Trump deserves a pat on the back from the American people,,, in my country they handout work visa’s and residency to any person that wants to be here , regardless of whether they are a convicted felon or a Chinese spy . Trump is the leader my country needs .

  25. You know something… when Trump became president, I thought he would do innovative things, being that he became a tycoon by polishing diamonds in the rough. But it seems like ALL HE DOES is attack immigrants and minorities. More so immigrants…

  26. Gee I always thought this was standard policy. Don't we have enough poor people ourself's who need help like our veterans?

  27. Trump,
    You promised us better healthcare. I work 55 hours a week, earning 70k a year but since healthcare costs are ridiculous, it's like I'm earning 40k in the end, especially having to pay for my wife's medication and health.
    Please keep your word on healthcare, for that is what the middle class needs help with the most.
    Targeting green card holders is a poor move and I'm not with you on this. You started with wanting to clear up illegal immigration, which I supported but if someone comes to the US and can't afford to make if because of healthcare being a big problem, especially that we have to pay 200 dollars a month in a fine for not having health insurance, it is a scam. If you really want to make America Great, help living in America more realistic, where we do not need support from programs.
    Republicans, Democrats and legal immigrants need better and more affordable healthcare.

  28. Why you complaining that new immigration law affect minorities only? It affects everyone. Its absolutely normal to make efforts to learn language of the country you wanted to come to and normal being an adult and having profession. Illiterate people who never worked in their country just wanted to change their status on welfare recipients. Why to pretend otherwise? If the US would not be supporting numerous people who for generation only work off books we would have more beautiful cities, less expensive medicine and education, museums and universities.

  29. OK children off to the farm or our grocery bill is going to be outrageous next year. Dang teenagers will want at least $12 an hour to harvest our vegetables and slaughter our meat for us.

  30. Kelsey Bolar (what a perfectly White name – 'Kelsey') from the Heritage Foundation looked positively giddy when talking about immigration. I love that smug look she has! BTW, ICE apprehended the 'illegals' first because all of that money that would have been paid out to them this coming paycheck is now going back to their employers – hmm,how convenient, huh? And no, nothing will ever, ever happen to those employers either; in case you haven't figured it out yet, Trump and Stephen Miller paid those companies to hire a bunch of 'illegals'. ICE would then conduct a 'surprise' raid on them and these illegals would be arrested and deported (even if they're American Citizens) and the company managers and executive would simply walk away, and they're get all their employee's money back a short time after as a 'thank you' from Trump!

  31. Factories that employs illegal workers is modern slavery .
    Is unfair for workers legal and illegal.
    Unfair competing with other companies that following the laws .
    This is a human labor rights !!!

  32. Anything to punish the underpaid hardest workers in America digging ditches & working the fields. Stinks of racism. How can you punish people doing things the legal way,

  33. LMAO Chicken factories … makes me think of a cartoon where Chickens are making parts on an assembly line.

  34. Reject green card.
    Angela markel in news?
    Saw her and how did you transplanted? By the breath of a beast? The other beast? Was that productive and money making of silicon valley?

    No silicon valley and breathing upon cementing jobs. No green card. No legal status.

  35. Don't you think it is strange company owners where the 'illegal' underpaid and under verry bad conditions are working, not beeing arrested while they actually earn millions and miljons. The sad thing about Trumps "final solution" is, America's economy needs six million illegal immigrants every year just to keep it going. The only thing Trump has done is reintroduced slavery after Abraham Lincoln ordered the freedom of all slaves in 1863.

  36. The Immigration Policy of The United States of America is committing The Abomination of desolation when making it impossible for Native Born Americans to Naturalize into their country. I always here "We welcome immigrants to the U.S. but they must come here the right way" but I never hear them Tell the Immigrants "How they can come the right way" Is there a right way to immigrate to the U.S.? If so why aren't they talking about how to legally come to the U.S.? I know why, they don't want smart people coming to the U.S. if you ever notice a majority of Legal U.S. Citizens are mentality or Physically Disabled or they are Police or Politicians or Local Governments, Media, Academic Community, Muti Billionaires anyone else allowed must be a double amputee..

  37. Very long ago, a book called The Jungle was written by UPton Sinclaire, about the Chicago stockyards, the conditions, and the abuse of the people, working mothers being coerced, children with diseases, and the squalid living conditions; that we could still have any semblance of this in this new century is appalling. The more we change the more we have to be reminded. Put those coyotes behind bars for a very long time. Maybe the meat will even get fresher and healthier for us, albeit more expensive. Perhaps less frivolous consumption is a needed message all around. Food that is meat is life taken away to sustain us. Not a happy meal. Not a party. What a world.

  38. Many wealthy immigrants bring parents. There is an industry out there teaching the new immigrants how to milk the system. Those who brought their parents will have no responsibility. These new immigrants are depleting the social security and medicare/medicaid funds. I have personal knowledge of elderly immigrants milking the system.

  39. Anyone who stands between and denys a hungry child something to eat is no friend of mine . I am no longer a Trump supporter . Jesus fed thousands of people with just a few fish and a few loafs of bread in old weaved baskets . there is plenty of food to go around just not enough leadership . If you can't help us or change the situation then give us the rite to die . you rich fuckers can have it all but when you arrive upstairs things are going to be much different . ~ hard life (MULDEW) ~ gary b *

  40. Trump continues to work for the benefit of America, while the democrats continue to wander around in a stupor.

  41. Since when is the Statue of Liberty poem by Emma Lazarus the law of the land?
    The US Constitution was written in plain and simple prose…
    and, it was never intended to be a poetic iteration of the law!

  42. GOD BLESS DONALD TRUMP👍🙏 ! AMERICA is IN MUCH BETTER SHAPE than IT'S EVER BEEN in YEARS 👍🙏❤ WISH WE HAD a TRUMP BROTHER TO RUN CANADA

  43. Well China is a wealthy country, perhaps all of these hispanic migrants should go there, or Saudi Arabia or Japan!

  44. This headline is simply not true. If you are LEGAL you already have a green card. The new rule is not retroactive which was stated clearly at the press conference.

  45. Why should Americans who are struggling because of democrat policies, give our money to people who come here for free stuff? This is insane!!!

  46. He is totally wrong, I am staying home with two babies we are all citizens of usa only my husband he is green card holder he is the only who support family,which is making two thousand per a month, and my rent is 1,500
    The day cares has ridiculous prices…how I am gonna stay without food stamp…
    This guy he cares only about himself , he doesn’t care about poor people

  47. Giving immigrants public assistance, food stamps, English lessons, Day care etc. is a new phenomena…….when my immigrant ancestors came they got nothing…….they didn't even expect it…….

  48. Great Trump w need to do like Canada noe walfare or help the first 5 yrs and show you have $ to suport yourself I'm tired to pay taxes for this I'm Handicap now and new imigrants get more help faking been sick and have house in asia and $$ and other countrys using defferents names to get USA help and veterents and taxes payers helderys w handicaps get crap it is not a white issues like Steve Choi say veterens are all color helderys hadicaps are all colors Tax payers are all colors !!!!!

  49. I'm a born citizen . I was told my great, great ,great grand parents came here from England. Just wondering if I ever got in trouble would I be released to go home to care for my children. I'm a single parent. Would the same laws pertain to me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. Americans commit a crime be separated from they familys all day everyday sooo what's the problem. all the media talk about the illegals that's y we American can't get real news

  51. Tear down the offending statue.. bulldoze the UN and send its corrupt members to France, ALREADY an African colony… Let's bring some SANITY back to a country sliding into a homosexual, allegedly "progressive" nightmare..

  52. The motto of America, if it can be said there is one, is: Don't Tread On Me… not "Give Me Your Filth".. Do you pathetic women and effeminates understand? You are courting a violent social purge… We don't want them.. therefore… we won't have them. Can you understand?.. They'll be killed.. is that truly what you want?
