Trump admin asks Supreme Court to allow ’public charge’ rule

The Trump administration has asked the Supreme Court to lift a lower court order that blocks the government’s efforts to restrict immigrants who rely on public assistance to obtain legal status. The request comes after the broadening of the definition of ’public charge’ to include immigrants who received one or more designated welfare benefits for more than 12 months within a 36-month period.

I absolutely agree with this if you're going to come here and immigrate to our great country you are going to contribute to the economy not siphon money from it. I believe anybody that emigrates to the United States shouldn't be able to receive any government cash assistance for at least 5 years after they become a citizen but I'd push that to 10. You need to prove when you come here that you can stand on your own two feet, supporter domicile, feed yourself/family, and keep a job we already have enough of our native citizens that need our help without adding people that weren't born here to that list.

Im confused here. When applying for your greencard you already need to prove you are either financially independent or have a financial sponsor and are not a burden to society. Its actually ALOT of work proving this. They warn you that ANY government help, not just welfare is grounds for denial. So why is Trump trying to push a rule that should already be in effect?
