    No Welfare For Immigrants....

    Why is the left so upset?


    To protect benefits for American citizens, immigrants must be financially self-sufficient

    The Trump Administration is releasing a final rule that will protect American taxpayers, preserve our social safety net for vulnerable Americans, and uphold the rule of law.

    This action will help ensure that if aliens want to enter or remain in the United States they must support themselves, and not rely on public benefits.

    An alien who receives public benefits above a certain threshold is known as a “public charge.”

    Aliens will be barred from entering the United States if they are found likely to become public charges.

    Aliens in the United States who are found likely to become public charges will also be barred from adjusting their immigration status
    .

    President Trump is enforcing this longstanding law to prevent aliens from depending on public benefit programs.

    This rule is exactly why it took so long and was so difficult for me to get a visa/green card for Rational Gaze. Our first application was denied because my income wasn't far enough above that year's official poverty level, even though I was working three jobs. I was living with my parents at the time so I reapplied with my income combined with my father's and got his visa that way. My father had to fill out a form saying that he'd support us. The whole process was a nightmare, but that was mostly because the entire system seems to be engineered to keep people out at all costs, and not merely to keep people off benefits.

    Yeah I remember that. You two tried for over a year, doing everything the right way and not getting anywhere, while thousands of illegal aliens were pouring into the country.

    I always thought if you married an American citizen, you got an automatic Green Card. I sure was wrong.

    My dad married my mother in Germany and brought her back with him. I guess she got a green card because he was in the army or something.

    It used to be that if you married a citizen, you automatically got a green card. Then people started tricking citizens into marrying them, then once they had their green card, they'd divorce the citizen and bring their real family into the country. In order to put a stop to that, they started investigating relationships on a level that threatens privacy. They want proof that you've been living together, sharing household bills, have children together, etc.. I don't know how we're supposed to have done those things if he's not allowed to live here and work here without the visa, so it was difficult for us to prove the legitimacy of our marriage. I ended up having my parents sign before a notary a statement that they had met RG and had seen us together and knew that we were for real. I also submitted wedding pictures, and a picture of the two of us at his graduation ceremony when he got his Master's degree. I also had printed out the entire history of our online chats, but I don't remember if I ended up having to submit that. I also had to submit three year's worth of my tax returns, and on the final round of applications, three years of my father's tax returns as well. The whole process made my mother very indignant, and she'd rant about how I had to work my butt off and still couldn't get approved to live with my legal spouse, meanwhile illegals were handed whatever they desired on a silver platter.

    Regarding military families, the rules are completely different. When I was researching the rules, I frequently saw things like, "... unless you're in the military, then the requirements are...". It's always been easy for them to bring back spouses from overseas.

    Why do they make it so hard to immigrate legally?
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    You outta try moving to Australia - some senior adult friends of mine have been trying for several years. Many countries want to know that you will not be a burden to their system, and that you can sustain yourself, and/or contribute to the system.

    Back in the day, all you had to do to move to Australia was commit a crime.

    Yeah, Australia closed that one down and are now sending criminals, who aren't Australian citizens, back to where they from. Our government has been complaining that it's unfair to the criminals for them to do that.....whilst ignoring we do the same....
