Immigration is when someone chooses to come to the United States (or any other country) because they want to be a part of the United States. Asylum (or refugee) is when one comes to another country (like the United States) because they cannot go back to their country without dying. Invasion is when one comes to another country to take what that other country has.

The Trump administration is moving forward with regulations that are expected to dramatically reshape the U.S. immigration system by denying green cards and visas to immigrants who use — or are expected to use — a wide range of federal, state and local government benefits, including food stamps, housing vouchers and Medicaid.
I just love how this article is worded. "Penalize". Immigration supporters call it cruel!! CRUEL! Funny how they don't find that it is cruel to the US taxpayer, paying for these costs. They are trying to spin this into a racial thing. This is not racist. This makes sense. We want immigrant, we just want quality immigrants that have something to add to our country. Why is that wrong?
If you come to a country, any country and cannot support yourself, you are basically a burden. For those that say with the right tools/education they could be "something". Well, maybe they need to try that in their own country.
There are some articles on the internet right now that are popular about Americans wanting to go abroad, because they are scared/tired/too stupid to live here. What I find absolutely freaking hilarious is that many of these "enlightened" countries have income and work requirements...

So basically trump is trying to make our immigration system like every other western country's.
What exactly is the problem?
I would not be allowed to move to Canada without having a job already arranged and I can guarantee it would have to be in a skilled field.

Penalize seems an appropriate word , if people move to America and take menial jobs with low pay like working as a cleaner or as hospitality in a golf resort for example they will be treated as second class citizens by the state as well as the people.
Are all immigrants bad now ?

I wonder how much better off you would be if the super rich paid the taxes they should pay in proportion to their earnings.

You just posted a list of legal refugees who supported themselves.
We are talking about illegal invaders who abuse government assistance.
I can post a list of YouTube videos featuring puppies...

So... how much is his 'fair share'?
Personally, I think the graduated system - and anyone who supports it - is disgusting.

Should the US shut its border to them, as well?
Fair is fair, right?

"He's only going after the poor immigrants!"
"He's only going after the...immigrants! They're not even real Americans!"
