(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – President Joe Biden and his administration are reversing the policy established by former President Donald Trump and his administration regarding immigrants receiving welfare.
As The Washington Times is currently reporting in “DHS tosses Trump-era policy, adopts more lenient welfare rules for immigrants“:
“Homeland Security on Thursday announced it has adopted a new lenient policy on immigrants’ use of welfare, tossing a Trump-era policy that would have been far stricter.
“Under the new system, known as the “public charge” rule, immigrants will only be penalized for potential welfare use if the government believes they will eventually become “primarily dependent” on government payments.
“By contrast, living in government housing, using Medicaid for health coverage or accepting food stamps wouldn’t count against an immigrant.
“Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said the new rule will deliver ‘fair and humane treatment of legal immigrants.’” [emphasis added]
As might be expected, liberals love what Biden and his appointees are doing to make it easier for immigrants to live on welfare.
“Immigrant-rights advocates cheered the new rules, calling them critical components of a nation ready to welcome less well-off newcomers.
“‘The United States does best when it takes advantage of the talents of immigrants from all walks of life, not just the privileged,’ said Jorge Loweree at the American Immigration Council. ‘The data is clear that immigrants are a net benefit to this country, even if they start from the bottom and work their way up.'” [emphasis added]

Mayorkas’s new policy returns largely to the one from the Clinton era.https://t.co/8N6YWh2p7m
