Judge strikes down Trump’s ’public charge’ immigration rule

A federal judge in Chicago has struck down the Trump administration’s new public charge rule, which denied green cards to immigrants because of doubts they could be self-sustaining and likely to need public benefits. Judge Feinerman from the Northern Dist. of Illinois cited ’numerous unexplained flaws’ that made the rule ’arbitrary and capricious,’ including an interpretation of self-sufficiency

We are a nation of 320m people we don't need new immigrants, however we are open to it if it helps improve America. Immigration should be based on merit based system, and you should be able to go 5 years without any goverment cash assistance. I also beleive new imigrants whether they be Russian, French, Japeneese, Mexican, etc. should have to take a written and spoken english test, most people and most buisnesses speak English in American and knowing the common langauge can only help you succeed in a new country.

The problem with this law was mostly that it poorly planned and ham fisted in its execution. It could probably legally with proper effort.

Well duh, it's arbitrary. Many laws are. Why shouldn't we be allowed to decide who can or can't be accepted as citizens? It's well with Trump's legal right.

Just take it to the SCOTUS. They'll overturn it. Still so many activist judges to get rid of...

Would be good if judges realise they are not elected by the people to make law.

I dont know how this is an issue. This is how canada does immigration. If the person can't provide for themselves, they need a sponsor who will. They require medical checks etc. Unless they're refugee claims. But that comes with a whole bunch of other requirements etc. Maybe because the states don't have public programs like we dk though. I don't know. ^^*
