According to the Washington Post, crossing the borders to get a free ride on America’s gravy train is about to become a lot less attractive. The only reason the Washington Post may have fabricated this story is to incite fear among the illegal alien population in order to take to the streets and riot along with paid Soros agitators. Muslims have done the same after they were lied to by the leftist media that Trump’s travel restrictions were a Muslim ban, when they are not.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, in 2012 approximately 51 percent of all immigrant households collected welfare. This is a HUGE problem and not the way to make America great again. If your household threw money away left and right, you would not expect to get wealthy. Well, that is exactly what our government is doing–mostly stoked by liberals in exchange for votes.
The Washington Post says the orders would reportedly “deny admission to any alien who is likely to become a public charge” and set up standards for “determining whether an alien is deportable … for having become a public charge within five years of entry.” The objective would be to make the U.S. immigration system more “merit-based,” so those who can contribute would be welcome. Those who are most likely to be a burden to the American taxpayer–would be kept out.
According to New York magazine, the order would also “bar undocumented immigrants from accessing the child tax credit, even when their children are U.S. citizens.” This would be detrimental to the anchor baby industry–sad that it’s actually an industry. As a sovereign nation, the United States has every right to demand the best from everyone who lives here.
It’s not our job to take care of every single refugee in the world. As one nation, we cannot possibly save every single person on earth. Other nations need to take responsibility too. If an immigrant comes here, works hard, contributes and is laid off–then, needs to collect welfare until they get back on their feet, that’s one thing. But, if an illegal comes here with the sole intention of boarding the welfare train–that’s a big league problem that hopefully President Trump will help resolve for us.
