Ridgewood NJ, according to the Star Ledger, out of 544,000 people on average applying annually for green cards, 382,000 (More than 70%) fall into the categories that would be subject to review of restricting issue of Green Cards, if they use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers or other forms of public assistance.
President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security released a rule change that would drastically alter the legal immigration system in the United States. The change would stop a number illegal immigrants entering the U.S. looking to obtain a green card seeking handouts from the US taxpayer.
The new 837-page rule, which was long pushed by Trump aide Stephen Miller and will go into effect on October 15, is based off wording in the Immigration Act of 1882, which says that the U.S. government can deny access to anyone they deem likely to become a “public charge.” Congress and the federal government, however, never defined what it meant to be a public charge before. This rule changes that.
In past generations it was common to make family member vouch for a new immigrant ,agree to provide a job and a place to live as well as being responsible financialy for any misdeed .
