The Trump administration announced Monday that immigrants seeking to become a legal permanent resident of the United States of America need to be able to stand on their own two feet.

Therefore, those who have used Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers or other forms of public assistance may have a difficult time obtaining a green card or visa.

“We certainly expect people of any income to be able to stand on their own two feet. If people are not able to be self-sufficient, then this negative factor is going to bear very heavily against them in a decision about whether they’ll be able to become a legal permanent resident,” acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli said on Monday.

The new  rule is scheduled to take effect in mid-October. However, there are several exceptions. The Associated Press reported:

Women who are pregnant and on Medicaid or who need public assistance will not be subject to the new rules during pregnancy or for 60 days after giving birth. The Medicare Part D low-income subsidy also won’t be considered a public benefit. And benefits received by children until the age of 21 won’t be considered. Nor will emergency medical assistance, school lunch programs, foster care or adoption, student loans and mortgages, food pantries, homeless shelters or disaster relief.

Active U.S. military members are also exempt, as are refugees and asylum seekers.

    US Taxpayers should not have to pay for the Welfare, Food Stamps, Unemployment insurance, Healthcare of any Non Citizen Illegal Alien in the USA. Today we are over $22 Trillion in Debt. Do you think that Japan or Germany would like to pay for My Welfare?

    NO Welfare benefits, no food stamps, no help with student loans, NO HELP WITH MORTGAGES, NO FREE HEALTHCARE & NO FREE OR LOW COST BUSINESS LOANS (that NEVER get PAID BACK) for IMMIGRANTS! If they aren’t fit to work, they shouldn’t be here!!! They need to return where they came from! Struggling American TAXPAYERS shouldn’t be supporting them! There’s PLENTY OF DESERVING AMERICAN VETERANS THAT SHOULD BE ASSISTANCE, THAT AREN’T RECEIVING HELP!

      Totally agree! Putting illegal migrants ahead of US citizens especially our veterans is outrageous! Now on top of everything else these socialist loons running for the Democrat nomination want to give them free healthcare? Enough of this madness! Vote Trump/Pence in 2020 and tell Democrats where they can stick their socialist BS!!!

    We adopted our 2 boys from Russia in 2005
    We had to prove we had enough income & housing for 3 years to support them and ourselves before we could go forward.
    Why then can people walk accross our borders and have us all pay for their welfare?
    Nothing makes common sense !
