Trump admin moves to deny green cards for migrants on public benefits


♪ ♪>>Martha: BIG STORY TONIGHT, TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS MOVING TOWARDS A MORE MERIT-BASED IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. IF THAT HAS BEEN A GOAL OF THEIRS FROM THE BEGINNING, ACQUIRING IMMIGRANTS IN THE MUCK APPLYING IMMIGRANTS, THAT HAS BEEN IN A LONG TIME BEFORE THEY HAVE ISSUED A GREEN CARD. NEWLY EXPANDED RULE ALLOWS THE GOVERNMENT TO DISQUALIFY SOME APPLICANTS BASED ON THEIR RELIANCE PROGRAMS LIKE MEDICAID, SOME KINDS OF HOUSING ASSISTANCE OR EVEN FOOD STAMPS.>>WE CERTAINLY EXPECT ANYBODY FROM ANY INCOMES TO BE ABLE TO STAND ON THEIR OWN TWO FEET, IF THEY’RE NOT ABLE TO BE SELF-SUFFICIENT, THAN THIS NEGATIVE FACTOR IS GOING TO BEAR VERY HEAVILY AGAINST THEM. IT’S A DECISION WHETHER THEY’LL BECOME A PERMANENT LEGAL RESIDENCE.>>Martha: HE THINKS DIFFERENTLY.>>IS A VERY INTENTIONAL EFFORT BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO CONTINUE TO TARGET IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIES. WITH CRUELTY AND FEAR.>>Martha: NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL PLANS TO SUE THE ADMINISTRATION TO STOP THIS. STATE OF CALIFORNIA ALSO CONSIDERING ACTION. ADAM COHOST OF THE FIVE, AND FOX NEWS POLITICAL ANALYST, CARL CAN YOU JUSTIFY THIS? IS THIS JUSTIFIABLE?>>SINCE 1995 THIS RULE IS IN PLACE, IT APPLIES UNDER U.S. LAW, PROVIDED FOR THE MOVE, WELFARE BENEFITS TO A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE. THE TRADITIONAL WELFARE CHECK, CAN YOU GET SUPPLEMENTARY SECURITY, SSI, THERE ARE WHOLE BUNCH OF PROGRAMS THAT ARE ALREADY OFF-LIMITS TO IMMIGRANTS AND VISA HOLDERS. THIS ANSWER TO PROGRAMS. FOOD STAMPS AND MEDICAID. THIS IS NOT THE DETERMINANTS, THIS IS NOT DISPOSITIVE, YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THAT IN THE LAST 36 MONTHS AND WHAT FACTORS ARE IN THERE TO THINK THEIR HABITS IN THE LAST 36 MONTHS ARE ABLE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES, BUT THEY HAVE TO RELY UPON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE. IN 12 MONTHS, I’D SO MUCH HAVE THEY BEEN TO DEPENDENT UPON FOOD STAMPS AND MEDICAID?>>Martha: IF YOU’RE GOING TO BECOME A CITIZEN, YOU HAVE TO BECOME SELF-SUFFICIENT. IF AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF OUR PIPE IS SPENT ON ENTITLEMENTS IN THE COUNTRY, SO, WHY SHOULD WE TAKE IN MORE PEOPLE TO ADD TO TA TAKE IN MORE PEOPLE TO ADD TO TT BURDEN IT’S BEEN IN THE BOOKS SINCE 1999.>>I DON’T THINK THAT’S THE ARGUMENT, THIS IS ABOUT PUNISHING IMMIGRANTS. I THINK IT’S POLITICAL, I THINK IT’S POLITICAL, I THINK OF SENDING A MESSAGE THAT HE’S ANTI-IMMIGRANT. HE DIDN’T GET THE WALL, I DID HE TRY TO GET MERIT-BASED ADMISSION TO THE COUNTRY, INTO THE BOOKS, DIDN’T DO SO, SO I THINK THIS IS A WAY TO CIRCUMVENT THAT. I CAN, WE KNOW THAT THE PRESIDENT WANTED TO CUT CERTAINLY ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, THE DIFFERENT THING HERE, THEY COME TO THE U.S. ELITE LEGALLY PAID HE’S POTENTIALLY INTERESTED IN HALTING PEOPLE WHO COME FROM LOW INCOME COUNTRIES, MOSTLY PEOPLE COMING FROM LATIN AMERICA, AFRICA, THE CARIBBEAN, AND THE LIKE AND I THINK THAT IT’S VERY DIFFICULT W THINK THAT IT’S VERY DIFFICULT E RELY OFTENTIMES ON THE DIFFERENT WAYS IN OUR LIFE ON PUBLIC AID. THAT IS A DISQUALIFICATION THAT YOU CAN’T HAVE THE AMERICAN DREAM IF AT ANY POINT SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY OR YOU HAD A MEDICAL ISSUE. OF>>Martha: PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BECOME CITIZENS, THEY’RE BEING MEASURED FOR ABOUT HOW IT’S GOING SO FAR AND ARE THEY – HAVE THEY GOTTEN ON THEIR TWO FEET, HERE’S KAMALA HARRIS. THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY HOT TOPIC FOR 2020.>>THE INVESTORS AND HAS DIRECTED DHS TO CONDUCT THESE RAIDS, PART OF WHAT I BELIEVE THIS ADMINISTRATION’S CAMPAIGN OF TERROR. WHICH IS TO MAKE WHOLE POPULATIONS OF PEOPLE AFRAID TO GO TO WORK, CHILDREN ARE AFRAID TO GO TO SCHOOL FOR FEAR WHEN THEY COME HOME THEIR PARENTS WON’T BE THERE.>>Martha: CARL.>>THIS IS OVER THE TOP, LET’S BE HONEST, IF NOBODY WAS SCREAMING ABOUT THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION SAYING IMMIGRANTS COULDN’T GET ANY BASIC WELFARE PROGRAM, LARGEST EXPENDITURE WE MAKE AND WEALTH ARE, THEY COULDN’T GET IT FOR THE SAME PROCESS. THAT COULD BE UPSET BY POSITIVE FACTORS, THIS IS A CHANGE, BUT IT’S NOT A HUGE CHANGE AND IT CERTAINLY NOT PUNISHABLE, EXPANDING THE NUMBER OF ITEMS THAT HAVE TO BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION.

  • Weak Liberal Government in those two States, CA is in severe debt!!!
    NO FREE RIDES, Born here and no ONE in my Family has ever had Government Assistance!!!

  • Whom will worship the rich when the rich will make the poor so poor as to promote chaos for the rich to demand they get richer while depleting lower class status into war against the rich.

    Exploitation of the lower class STATUSES only means the rich will eventually start a war for being too rich through dictation of dictator demand of the lower CLASSES.

    How high do you want the national debt to demand payment to you, Trump for your police state???

    Debt the citizens enough to end this country?

  • Why is it asking too much for people who want to come to our country have something to bring to the party? Why are Americans to pay expenses for non citizens who come to our country? I would like to have free medical care, food, and housing as well…but I can't because I am a legal citizen who pays taxes. Go figure.😫👎👎

  • This was just another symptom of the infestation that is hell-bent on attacking and destroying the traditional white working class family. Just look out there, it's happening and it's being done systematically in every way possible with one end goal. You don't just treat the symptoms you cure the disease.

  • Read volume 2 of the Mueller report for yourself. Read volume 1 of the Mueller report as an AMERICAN. Do not trust Fox propaganda. Read!

  • There are many American taxpayers that didn't even know that their tax money was going toward people that are not citizens yet, imagine the drain on the American taxpayer when these people do become citizens

  • Come to legally to America !!! Them you will have a benefits , they are deserved !
    But , illegally come to America !, you do not deserve anything period!!! If allow all the benefit to illegal immigrant people ,, they will come more illegally!!
    So shouldn’t give the at all !!!
    Please , make the law strongly and stop coming to America illegally !!!!!

  • Hell yes!! Kick them out of the country and don't let anyone in who can't take care of themselves! They AREN'T IMMIGRANTS! They are ILLEGAL ALIENS!!! TRUMP 2020!!! Enforce the laws!!!

  • Hallelujah! Until the progressive's Decide that some US citizens human dignity is somehow being trampled by a U.S. law. 0:55 ha there it is. Ugh.

  • Why should the hard working people of any country financially support those from other countries who can't be bothered to work? Let's see a leftie answer that!

  • white conservative patriot. says:

    Good, its about time. Dont come over here and suck on our system….common sence people….
    CALIFORNIANs are asses, look what they are doing to their state, lmbo….js.? (True)…

  • WHY SHOULD WE GIVE YOU BENEFITS WHEN MY ANCESTORS CAME HERE AND HAD TO WAIT FOR THEIRS. YOU WANT IT RIGHT AWAY BUT YOU HURT AMERICANS. SO SORRY YOU HAVE TO WAIT YOUR TURN!!!! FIRST COME FIRST SERVE IS THE AMERICAN WAY!!!!!!

  • If this rule has been in effect since 1999 then all these social workers who are giving out food stamps, Medicaid, Medicare n all other gov programs are ignoring federal laws.

  • TeenyStudio Flicks says:

    It does not matter how many years ago illegal immigrants snuck across the border, the law is the law.  If a US citizen breaks a law 5,6,7 etc years ago, when the law catches up to them they don't just say "That's alright, it was a long time ago and you've been good while you have been hiding out here".  They bring you up on criminal charges because YOU BROKE THE LAW! You can't just decide which US law should be ignored….

  • Josefina Counts says:

    In order to get residency in Mexico you have to prove that you have an income of a certain amount that would make it possible for you to take care of yourself. About public assistance, it’s fine for a while to get you on your feet but it should not be your way of life.

  • We need help in our country before any illegal person. The Democrats never helped the people. Now they want us to give everything to people who are not Americans!

  • The only reason they’re here is to be freeloaders. If poor Americans can’t get aid, but a freeloading immigrant gets everything. Why are they being taken care of before our own?

    Send the WHOLE family back, not just the parents. Send the kids with them. No need to separate families. Let them all go together.

  • I love our president he is for Americans first if any of Congress isn't for this president they are for destroying our country bottom line .Close the border stop the drugs and invaders .

  • Why is this the least bit controversial? Virtually every advanced country requires immigrants to demonstrate that they are self sufficient. Most require an actual job before you can get in. This includes the liberals' favorite bastions of high-tax, socialized everything–Sweden, Denmark, etc.

  • To those highly intelligent potential Presidents that want to Give $1,000 to EVERY PERSON, whether they choose to work , or not, JUST EXACTLY WHERE WILL THOSE $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ COME FROM.???
    Unless we have a sudden visitation from outer space someplace, IT WILL BE YOU AND I AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE ENOUGH BRAINS, ENERGY, AND EDUCATION TO GO TO WORK EVERY DAY SO THAT THEIR HARD EARNED $$$$$$ CAN GO TO IMMIGRANTS AND CITIZENS THAT DECIDE THEY PREFER COLLECTING WELFARE INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY WORKING,!
    Boy, are we , the people that are educated , trained and actually WANT TO GO TO WORK EVERY DAY , THEN PAY TAXES not so bright! We can stop working too, start collecting those $$$$ the dems want to give everyone and then see what happens to our country!

  • I'm an American taxpayer and I love having my tax dollars go to these immigrants from these S. hole countries, who need their social support and cash benefits.
    My favorite Bible verses is where Jesus said let me feed you fish forever.
    I'm sure if I showed up and their country flat broke needing somebody to feed me, house me and give me medical Care their government would be more than willing to do that forever..

    I can stick a camera in anybody's face that's crying and get you to buy into what I have to say..
    Either you have a country or you don't either you have borders or you don't.

  • Whole populations of people??? Why are there so many?????
    because the democRats will NOT allow restriction of FAKE immigration flow…

  • Vincent Vargas says:

    GOOD GOOD AND GOOD! Benifits are for American citizens NOT FOR IMMIGRANTS WHO COME FOR FREE GANDOUTS! M.A.G.A TRUMP 2020

  • Well it’s about time. I’m sick of our hard earned dollars going to these people. There are elderly and children in this country that need that money themselves.

  • Maria Elvira Ekeheien says:

    Yes! Allow only the eligible and those who meet self sufficiency standards until legal residency is achieved, is good governance.

  • *Excellent* move! *All* Western countries should have such a law!
    No more "welfare leeches" (we call them "bludgers" in New Zealand) coming to a country for the sole purpose of living on **welfare benefits**.

  • Juan should turn his paycheck over to them if he feels bad about it, people are tired of paying the freight for the freeloaders in this country, wether they be citizens or not, we'll start to see more cash at the grocery store instead of the welfare cards !

  • Juan you are an idiot , you have to make it political because that's what the left does. You know it has nothing to do with cruelty and mistreating emigrants, it's about them working and supporting the country that they live in, not working here and sending the money back home so their relatives cone get here. I want to see my tax dollars spent wisely and not just pissed away on things that are not even lawful.

  • About time…. Trump 2020! So, if the democrats really want to help these immigrants that are not American citizens, like the Canadians, they should give their HARD WORKING MONIES TO THEM.

  • Adults and children that did something they should not have done will always have fear of the repercussions. Mmmmm it’s human nature. Just don’t do it! The military says “if you have to think about it, 😂 don’t do IT!”

  • The left sure does love making countries poor and broken down. These people need to show some integrity not just victim standing. It's not about punishing immigrants Juan. I have to have a certain amount of income to live in another nation. They need to come here and stand on their own or figure out how to manage their own nations. Get these people out of here especially other DACA anchors like Kamala the Tramp who sleeps her way to the top.

  • Juan always blames PRESIDENT TRUMP for every thing .well Juan I'm tired of paying for the illegal aliens or aliens period.its not my job to pay and keep foreign free loaders.i have never got any assistance what so ever.

  • Sorry to tell you friend
    The US security problem in particular and the world in general is the delusional left
    It distorts reality and causes many unsuspecting young people to lose their way especially when they disguise their hallucination with something psychological that is close to any young person = laziness
    For others to work you have to enjoy at the expense of the other taxpayer – it attracts young people who have no tools to deal with the real world
    That is why most young people see socialism as a solution to their laziness
    You have to prove to the world how sick these people are!

  • AMERICA FIRST! My own grandparents, who immigrated legally in 1919-21, had to prove self sufficiency. They made arrangements with responsible friends/family (U.S. Citizens) who sponsored them (agreed to pay if applicant couldn't take care of themselves) and, they brought a small amount of cash to prove they weren't destitute. TOP priorities were (1) get a job NOW and (2) speak ONLY English! That's just HOW IT WAS DONE! I know times have changed, but we CANNOT TAKE care of the world's poor. We take care of AMERICA FIRST! We have NEVER been on Welfare! Ever!

  • How divided are we ?Law going down the tubes ,uranium hillary laughing all the way to the bank,the dems are off the hook and we will see and hear nothing but diversion tactics from the media ……The word unity is a joke and no matter whom is in office it will always be a joke calling for unity..

  • I applaud this. Too many coming here to live off a system that citizens pay for. If allowed to continue, they will bankrupt the system. Someone had to stand up and start making the unpopular decisions that ensure the United States of America's future citizens will have a system to rely on.

  • Agustin Topete says:

    Kamala why don’t you put your mouth where your foot is. You go down to what ever the hell you wanna go, and take care of those people.

  • Just the other day Conman Trump was seen in the graveyard where his daddy is buried with a shovel trying to dig up the corpse to see if he could get still another loan from his father to bail him out another time to cover up a financial disaster in the making….. Grimm Reaper McConnell was seen with a shovel nearby searching for the coffin Putin placed his treasure …..a la the movie…..The Good, the Bad and the Ugly starting Clint Eastwood. 😎

  • Shaemus O Reilly says:

    …And…those that do gain entrance-Kalifornia needs to take in. Let Maxine, Nancy and Gavin put their BIG wallets where their BIG mouths are. We have the $$ here, right?? …..signed, EX San Diegan.

  • now expecting someone to pay their own away in life is "cruelty and fear". lets ignore the fact that it has been law for years and blame Trump.

  • Juan is such an idiot, why doesn't he take his sorry liberal butt over to CNN, I bet him and Don Lemon would get along great.

  • Kjostolf Borchgrevink says:

    Oh, how those on the left hate it when they are held to personal accountability. The politicians who want to buy votes do not want to be held to personal accountability, and they do not want their voting base to be held personally accountable either. Juan Williams is such a typical liberal leftist

  • Kjostolf Borchgrevink says:

    Juan… The American dream is actually defined by having the freedom move up the ladder of success in life. The American dream as originally defined was not food stamps… contrary to what Democrats think these days.

  • Eliminate the welfare benefits for all the want to be green card holders and for the already green card holders who have collected welfare,,any benefits that hard working Americans are forced to pay with the high taxes were paying let's disqualified those green card holdersl for the green card renewals period

  • Kjostolf Borchgrevink says:

    Camala … whole populations of people, aa you say, are afraid because they are criminals, they are breaking the law. If they were not breaking the law by entering this country illegally, then they would have no reason to be afraid. Typical leftist hypocrisy.

  • Kjostolf Borchgrevink says:

    It is a step in the process to become a permanent legal resident Juan… it is not a procedural matter to try and keep immigrants out of the country. It is a deciding factor who can stay here permanently. God gave each of us a brain, use it in a Godly way.

  • Kjostolf Borchgrevink says:

    Also Juan… Yes, President Trump DID get the wall, it is going up more and more everyday. Why do you try and use lies as a justification for your thinking?

  • Rebecca Hernandez says:

    Isn't kamala the one that kept inmates in prison longer than their actual time that was given to them. Oh right let's agree with her. What an idiot.

  • Hurray for my president for this stance. Allows foŕ them to be shipped out to where they're welcomed. I don't want to pay for lazy fux

  • "Give free money to all migrants" – Wouldn't that make us a country that's just open to all refugees and would counter incentives for them to get jobs and be productive citizens?

  • Tracey Johnson says:

    I am friends with a Jamaican women who came over, worked very hard to bring her mother and 3 children to the US. She worked 2 jobs for years to support her family. When the children turned 16, they found part time jobs after school. She eventually was able to buy a house, and took care of her mom till she died. The only thing she got help for was her mom's medical. I have so much respect for my friend. She is an example of what immigration used to be. Just being able to come to the US to find opportunities for a better life for your family was enough. All our ancestors struggled when they came here, but every generation has had a better life for their sacrifice. Supporting yourself and your family gives you pride and and confidence. I don't know when this became a bad thing.

  • That's how it should be.!!
    There is no other country on this planet who would let me move there and expect that govt & citizenry to take care of me.!!!

  • I am tired of hearing about people coming to thie nation an working ANDgetting thousands of dollars in food stamps, and being put first in line for jobs and receiving medical for free ,just because the are carring a green card. In the 20s and 30s we turned away pepole who would not be able to live and work in this nation, GOD forgive us in WW2 we turned away 6 ships of Jewish people and just a few survived. There are people in this nation from other nations that are AT THIS TIME trying to take OUR freedom away from us. OUR FLAG INSULTS THEM, I did NOT invite them in, I say to them MY NATION , GO HOME!!!!! The President is right , ,get off his back. Let the man do his job!🤨

  • Arturo Hernandez says:

    And jobs are not coming back. And healthcare is not cheaper and is not better. But it was soooo easy. Somehow nothing is going right for anyone. Everybody is a loser. Great job Republican voters!

  • Isreal has National Healthcare and Free Education and USA TAXPAYER PAYS Isreal Billions each year!  
    $3 Billion in foreign aid,
    +$8 Billion loan guarantees+
    $38 Billion in Military Aid. 
    Help me understand
    & let them in!
