Trump’s ’public charge’ rule to take effect, says Supreme Court

The ’public charge’ rule of the Trump administration will be allowed to take effect, the Supreme Court said on Monday. This move comes in the backdrop of many lower courts blocking the immigration policy. The four Democratic appointees of the court, however, said that they would not have allowed the policy to be enforced.

Good. If you are going to take more than you contribute, I would not want you taking my tax money. Doesn't matter what you look like, or where you come from.

Good. My family came here with literally the clothes on our back. My dad was a skilled construction worker and, after my parents worked for minimum wage and multiple jobs for a few years, began earning a decent salary. If he was completely unskilled, they'd probably be on food stamps.

"Citizenship and Immigration Services in August, defines a “public charge” as an immigrant who received one or more designated benefits for more than 12 months within a 36-month period." Seems fair to me. They're not saying no welfare for non-citizens, they're saying no welfare in perpetuity for non-citizens.

This is a good policy. We should have a meritocratic immigration system.

The best way to handle this problem imo is for the government and states to determine a monetary value (as determined by actuaries) for all immigrants who want citizenship. We don't want somebody else's criminals so background checks would be in order but if you qualify you pay a citizenship fee to be split by the government and states. They both could use the revenue and people while the immigrant gets his/her citizenship. Immigrants should be put on probation until they pay this fee off in total and deported if they don't. It's not a perfect idea by any means but it could be a start to something better than what we now.

Making America Great Again! My great-grandparents came here with nothing and worked themselves to the bone! They did not take from the taxpayer. They had so little and worked with it. It disgusted my father to see these freeloaders taking government money and living higher than he did as a child because his parents worked for what they had. He became so disenfranchised by this corrupt bs. We need reform NOW. I have a neighbor who lives in bigger place than me, always has cigarettes, satellite tv, gets all her food and housing paid for by taxpayers, and still stole from me! She knows I have less and had no qualms. We need to start putting these people in group homes or institutions and stop letting them live off our dime, they become entitled freeloaders. We can clothe, feed, and house them in a way that doesn't encourage them to live like that indefinitely.

The issue that this lost in lower court rejected it and the Trump admin fast tracking it to the Supreme court where they have been able to get 2 justices put on it. That is political bias and using the supreme court to get what they want. That goes against the Separation of power between the branches.
