The Trump administration is currently pushing a proposal that will rewrite a 1999 rule that limits the green cards for immigrants who are dependent on government cash benefits. The rewrite will include the refusal of green cards to immigrants who are also dependent on the government for health aid, food stamps, and any other governmental assistance.
Most Liberals are upset over this rule because they feel that immigrants should have the right to American support if they are in our country legally. The problem is that studies have shown that most of the immigrants who are in the U.S. with a green card receive some form of governmental assistance for their survival while in America. This has contributed to the depletion of benefits to go around for individuals who are United States citizens.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it
Liberals have a unique ability to fight for things they aren’t suffering from. They find it necessary to argue on behalf of people who come to America for better opportunities, not realizing that the support immigrants are receiving from the government are opportunities that will no longer be in existence for a tax-paying Americans.
It makes perfect sense that the government would step in and say NO MORE to outside folks that come and take, take, take—only to take those resources back to their country—leaving American’s high and dry for much-needed support. Democrats in the White House are the first to cry foul when they hear about immigrants not being embraced as one of our very own.
They cry because they know that immigrants tend to vote (even when they are here illegally), they work for little money, and they don’t complain…I mean, who would they complain to? Some of them are illegal, remember!
Too many people, not enough resources
The reality is that we live in a society where there are just too many people and not enough resources to go around. Our forefathers established a system that embraced everyone that needed a home to call their own…with exception to the Native Americans who were already here and the Africans who didn’t want to come here (but that’s another article for another time).
The point is, America was the land of the free that accepted immigrants from Italy and a few other countries. Once we opened our borders to accept anyone who couldn’t cut the mustard in their own country, we opened the door to more crime and fewer resources to go around. Liberals won’t acknowledge this reality because they are too busy benefiting from immigrants. From increased voting to cheap labor, what’s not to love?
We can only hope that the new rule being proposed by Trump and his administration will somehow bring order to a society in need of structure, both economically and politically. It is truly time to make America a land that can support its own people prior to supporting immigrants — who have the flexibility to go to their own country if they should so choose.
