Legal immigrants who work pay taxes….
Illegal immigrants who get paid on the books pay taxes….
So their pay into the system , like all Americans , will give them NO benefits?
The Trump administration will penalize legal immigrants who rely on public programs, such as food stamps and government-subsidized housing, as part of a sweeping new policy to slow legal immigration into the United States and reduce the number of immigrants who are granted permanent legal status.
The move will have the greatest impact on poor immigrants who are living in the country legally and are receiving public benefits from the government, forcing them to make a choice between accepting financial help and living and working in the country legally. It will probably not affect immigrants who already have green cards.
The United States wants immigrants who can support themselves, according to the rule, not those who “depend on public resources to meet their needs,” according to the new rule.
The regulation, which is scheduled to go into effect in 60 days, will provide the Trump administration a powerful new tool to narrow the demographic of people who come to live and work in the country….
Border arrest have dropped as they usually do the hottest part of the year…..
The number of illegal immigrants arrested by Border Patrol at the United States-Mexico border fell 24 percent compared with June of this year, signaling that a migrant surge that’s burdened federal resources and ignited partisan battles on Capitol Hill may continue to recede during the summer months. Border Patrol arrested roughly 71,999 illegal aliens in July of 2019, according to figures released Thursday by Customs and Border Protection. That is down from nearly 94,908 in June of 2019, and 132,870 in May of 2019, the highest monthly total since 2006. Apprehensions at U.S. borders are the metric used to estimate how many illegal aliens enter the United States per month; however, the total number of illegal immigrants is usually higher than that of arrests.
The drop-off comes after border arrests soared earlier this year to levels not seen in a decade. The Trump administration has experimented with a range of strategies to deter immigrants from trekking to the border, including a “remain in Mexico” policy that requires some immigrants to wait in that country while their bid for asylum is considered. Since that initiative launched in January, roughly 30,000 non-Mexican immigrants have been forced to wait in Mexico pending the outcome of their cases, according to CBP officials. However, a decrease in numbers during the sweltering summer months is not unusual – in fact, June to July declines occurred in most of the last ten years….
