Pastor Antonio Velasquez says that before the Trump administration announced a crackdown on immigrants using government social services, people lined up before sunrise outside a state office in a largely Latino Phoenix neighborhood to sign up for food stamps and Medicaid.

‘You had to arrive at 3 in the morning, and it might take you until the end of the day,’ he said, pointing behind the office in the Maryvale neighborhood to show how long the lines got.

The article goes on to state the following:

With new rules taking effect Monday that disqualify more people from green cards if they use government benefits, droves of immigrants, including citizens and legal residents, have dropped social services they or their children may be entitled to out of fear they will be kicked out of the U.S., said Velazquez and other advocates.

There was “no one lined up one recent weekday morning,” the report says, ¬†and only “a handful of people” were inside.

The new policy aims to determine if immigrants could become a government burden.

The effort is believed to have the effect of potentially reducing immigration.
