Trump Targets Immigrants
Trump is proposing a federal rule which would bar recipients of public services from obtaining legal status in the United States. In the past, immigrants who are seeking legal status have still been allowed to receive non-cash benefits, such as Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers, etc. Under the new rule, anyone who applies for any of these programs is subject to deportation. Many families will forego necessary medical care for their U.S. citizen children out of fear that other members of the family will be deported. The proposed rule is open for public comment.
