Trump wants to take away the right to state aid from immigrants


On Wednesday evening, President Trump announced his plans to address Congress with a view to adopting a law banning immigrants from receiving government assistance for 5 years after entering the United States.

“It's time for new immigration rules that say those who immigrate to our country must be able to support themselves financially and not benefit from benefits for at least five years,” Trump said at a meeting with associates in Iowa.

Trump's proposal will be based on the 1996 Personal Responsibilities and Employment Opportunity Act of the Year, which allows federal authorities to deport immigrants who become social dependents during 5 years from the moment they arrive. Many of the provisions of this law were repealed during the administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Currently, states usually determine the right of an immigrant to participate in local assistance programs.

Foreigners with non-immigrant visas and persons without legal status are generally prohibited from using these benefits.

Trump's proposal would also prevent people from entering the country who could become so-called “public accusations” within 5 years from the moment they arrived. The concept of "public prosecution" for more than a century has been part of US immigration law. This allows the government to prohibit entry to persons who may seek government assistance. It is assumed that Trump will propose to tighten the rules regarding the “public prosecution” and to ensure their observance.

The administration circulated a draft order to make the proposed changes to Trump earlier this year.

In support of these changes, the White House cited a report by the Center for Immigration Studies for 2015, according to which 51% of immigrant families use some form of government assistance compared to 30% of non-immigrant families. This report is disputed by critics who say that the nuances of many immigrant families were not taken into account when drafting it.
