President Biden is signing several executive orders related to immigration policy that will begin the process of rolling back Trump's policies against legal immigration including one of his worst.
In the latter half of Trump's term, the regime introduced new regulations against granting permanent legal status to immigrants who may qualify for social assistance programs.
Legal immigrants did not have to actually use an assistance program to be denied permanent residency under the Trump-era rule; they only had to qualify by being poor or low-income. But the Biden administration is now taking the legally required steps to publish and eventually implement new rules.
Overall, Biden will issue three executive orders dealing with regional migration, legal immigration and reunifying families, the officials said.
As part of the actions, he will call for a review of a Trump-era rule that made it harder for poorer immigrants to obtain permanent residency in the United States, they said. He will also mandate a review of the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), a controversial program that pushed 65,000 asylum seekers back to Mexico to wait for U.S. court hearings. Most returned to their home countries but some remained in a makeshift camp near the Mexican border.
You know, the cruel truth is you can work full time, pay your taxes, and otherwise be a productive member of society and still qualify for public assistance programs in America. That is a very average and regular existence even for American-born citizens who work for poverty-level wages.
To say that legal immigrants cannot obtain permanent legal status simply because their jobs don't pay enough money is clearly motivated by racism because white immigrants are more likely to enter the system with more money to begin with.
Go back 100 years and white immigrants were the poor ones.
