Trump admin. announces new rule to limit legal immigration

The rule will take effect on October 15th with exemptions for refugees and asylum seekers. "It's not only a recipe for their success, but for America's success growing out of our immigration system".

Though the rule, which will be implemented by the Department of Homeland Security and immigration agencies run by it, will apply only to foreigners already in the United States, new admissions are expected to be impacted as well, because, experts say the state department "is already applying more expansive public charge requirements to visa applicants overseas, and is expected to fully adopt the DHS standards".

Immediately after the rule was announced, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) said it would file a lawsuit to stop it from taking effect.

In May, Trump announced a broad plan for immigration "that protects American wages, promotes American values, and attracts the best and brightest from all around the world".

The Trump administration has introduced a new "public charge" rule to cut down on legal immigrants who are unlikely to support themselves without government welfare. "Through the public charge rule, President Trump's Administration is reinforcing the ideals of self-sufficiency and personal responsibility".

The Trump administration on Monday finalized a rule that could deny permanent residency - or "green cards" - to immigrants who have received public benefits such as food stamps and housing assistance, a move rights groups condemned as an attack on low-income families that could have "a dire humanitarian impact". And it defines the term "public benefit" to include any cash benefits from the government for income maintenance, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), most forms of Medicaid, and certain housing programs.

Fans' hilarious online reaction to Andy Carroll's Newcastle return
A former star on Tyneside, his career has been on a downward trajectory since he left the Magpies for Liverpool back in 2011. Fitness checks are said to be underway on the injury-plagued striker, and he himself is keen to return to his hometown club.

Under the new rule, applicants denied exclusively on public charge grounds will be able in some circumstances to post a bond along with their application. It is used as a basis for admissibility into the US and as a determining factor when someone is trying to adjust their immigration status to obtain legal permanent residency. The new rule could impact hundreds of thousands who immigrate to the United States each year.

Immigration officials, under the change, could also take into account an applicant's financial resources, health, education, skills, family status and age.

Ken Cuccinelli serves as acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services office for the Trump Administration and as such, he led a White House briefing on Monday morning. It also comes just a week after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement descended on seven work sites in MS in what officials called the largest, single-state immigration enforcement action in history.

He added, "It will also have the long-term benefit of protecting taxpayers by ensuring people who are immigrating to this country don't become public burdens, that they can stand on their own two feet, as immigrants in years past have done".

Critics have decried the effort to limit legal immigration for lower income people affront to the nation's ideals highlighted by the inscription on the Statue of Liberty that reads "Give me your exhausted, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free".
