WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is expected to issue a proposal in coming weeks that would make it harder for legal immigrants to become citizens or get green cards if they have ever used a range of popular public welfare programs, including Obamacare, four sources with knowledge of the plan told NBC News. The move, which would not need Congressional approval, is part of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller's plan to limit the number of migrants who obtain legal status in the U.S. each year.

So how many immigrants are actually trying to become citizens anyway?
Do they really want to become permanent members of America or are they just working here until they want to return home?
That's not an immigrant.

I'm bemused that there are so many people with a hate-hardon for immigrants .....
Just common sense. More hungry mouths are never popular, especially when many at home are lacking.

Obviously one of the biggest problems with Open Borders is that people stream into the US to get free stuff. To the extent to which more free stuff is made available, the costs of the programs soar as more people stream into the US.
About all Trump can do is try to limit the damage done but at the end of the day (his Administration), the Leftist Dems will come to power and up the ante on free stuff to anyone who can cross the border.
This has been going on for a long, long, time.
