As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Ken Cuccinelli on Monday defended a controversial Trump administration rule that would link an immigrant’s ability to secure green cards to their use of certain public programs.
Cuccinelli told reporters at the White House that the “public charge” change promotes “the ideals of self-sufficiency and personal responsibility.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“We certainly expect people of any income to be able to stand on their own two feet. If people are not able to be self-sufficient, then this negative factor is going to bear very heavily against them in a decision about whether they’ll be able to become a legal permanent resident,” he said.
The Hill further reported:
Under the rule set to be published in the Federal Register on Wednesday, receiving benefits like food stamps, Medicaid or housing subsidies will count negatively against a non-citizen’s chances of getting green cards of visas.
