No More Free Rides?

The Supreme Court upheld a rule stating immigrants will not receive green cards if they are currently on the government dole. So. Much. Winning.

The Supreme Court Monday allowed the Trump administration to enforce a new rule that will deny green cards to foreign nationals who use taxpayer-funded social services, lifting lower court injunctions that blocked the change.

The 5-4 vote followed ideological lines, with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan in dissent. The justices did not give reasons for lifting the injunctions — as is typical of orders of this nature — though Justice Neil Gorsuch released a concurring opinion urging the Supreme Court to curtail the use nationwide injunctions, which Justice Clarence Thomas joined.

Remember, all the NeverTrump “conservatives” are very fond of using “But Gorsuch” as a pejorative. Gorsuch helped this rule pass.

“Today’s stay from the Supreme Court is a massive win for American taxpayers, American workers, and the American Constitution,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said of the order. “This decision allows the government to implement regulations effectuating longstanding federal law that newcomers to this country must be financially self-sufficient and not a ‘public charge’ on our country and its citizens.”

It is difficult to list all the good this president has done for America, not to mention all the Obama policies he has overturned. He truly needs to be reelected.

  1. This makes my day! I know when my son married a Canadian, he had to show proof of income, etc prior to becoming a citizen and being allowed to live there for more than six months. I am tired of people seeing this country and handouts R US.


  2. Can we pass a law to stop libtard californicators from moving to another state and bringing there idiotic ideas with them?


  3. Back when the GWB Administration was in charge, and I was going through the maze in getting my future wife into the states, I had to prove I was financially able to provide for her. Bank records, credit history, employment records, etc. For the previous ten years. Each time we had to file a different request, we paid between $175 to $300+ bucks for “processing fees.” In all, it took over two years and about $15,000 to get her into the country. Then we started on getting her a green card. And then citizenship.

    But we did it right, and she is very legal. And we are still happy together.

    But it would have been a lot cheaper if she could have swam the Rio Grande….


  4. Ronni – Most every country does it that way, especially Mexico. Sneak into their country and you land in jail.

    Cathy – Agreed. Move if you want, but don’t turn a nice state into the place you fled.

    TX Nick – Yep. My neighbor is the same way. Emigrated from Germany with her American fiancée, and did it the right way. It took 15 years.
