According to a leaked report obtained by the Washington Post, Donald Trump is getting ready to sign yet another executive order. This one will take aim at immigration, and aim to “crackdown on current, and would-be, immigrants who are likely to require public assistance.”
Trump is also allegedly planning on signing a second executive order, which would control, “who enters the country and who can enter the workforce, and reducing the social-services burden on U.S. taxpayers.”
Part of the executive order obtained by the Washington Post reads as following.
Our country’s immigration laws are designed to protect American taxpayers and promote immigrant self sufficiency. Yet households headed by aliens are much more likely than those headed by citizens to use Federal means-tested public benefits.
The order would also:
(a.) Deny admission to any alien who is likely to become a public charge
(b.) Identify and remove, as expeditiously as possible, any alien who has become a public charge and is subject to removal; and
(c.) Seek reimbursement from all sponsors of immigrants for the costs of Federal means-tested public benefits provided to sponsored immigrants
Free market economist Milton Friedman warned that open borders and a welfare could not coexist, and eliminating welfare for immigrants is a great first step towards ending the mass migration to the United States.
