Trumps’ government further tightens United States immigration rules with new regulations

The Trump administration announced a new rule Monday that would make it harder for documented, low-income immigrants to stay in the country.

A large proportion of immigrants from India are professional or relatives of professionals and the community as a whole is the highest-earning group with a median annual household income of over $110,000, according to the U.S. census bureau. NPR's Rachel Martin asked Cuccinelli.

According to the regulations, when the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service decides whether to issue a permanent residence permit (green card), it will consider whether the applicant has received public welfare as a factor in consideration of his or her education, income, and health status.

Ken Cuccinelli was responding to a question about whether the updated regulations continued in the spirit of Emma Lazarus' sentiments in "The New Colossus" that are etched on the Statue of Liberty.

The new rule will go into effect October 15, and only government aid used after that point will be assessed, Cuccinelli said.

Give me your exhausted, your poor ... but not too poor.

Kenneth Cuccinelli, the acting Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services, countered that the changes would ensure that people who came to the US were not a drain on tax-payers and were self-sufficient. "That plaque was put on the Statue of Liberty at nearly the same time as the first public charge was passed - very interesting timing". "Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

"No one has a right to become an American who isn't born here as an American".

After the host asked if the policy "appears to change the definition of the American dream", he said: "We invite people to come here and join us as a privilege".

The new requirements will not apply to refugees, those seeking asylum, children given special immigrant status, and victims trafficking, criminal activity and domestic violence, according to the notification.

Those who do not meet income standards or who are deemed likely to rely on benefits such as Medicaid (government-run healthcare) or housing vouchers in future may be blocked from entering the country.

In 2017, CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked White House adviser Stephen Miller how Trump's proposed immigration policy requiring certain skill levels squared with the poem that once greeted immigrants arriving at Ellis Island.

Legit.ng earlier reported that President Donald Trump recently told four congresswomen of colour to go back to where they came from and fix the rot there instead of telling the people of United States how their government should be run.
