Supreme Court to hear case on state efforts to revive a Trump immigration policy

Source: NBC News

WASHINGTON ó The Supreme Court agreed Friday to take up an effort by Republican officials to revive a Trump administration effort that denied green cards to immigrants considered likely to become overly dependent on government benefits.

The Department of Homeland Security announced in 2019 that it would expand the definition of "public charge," to be applied to people whose request to become lawful permanent residents could be denied because of a concern they would primarily depend on the government for their income.

In the past, the designation was largely based on an assessment that an immigrant would be dependent upon cash benefits. But the Trump administration broadened the definition to include non-cash benefits such as Medicaid, supplemental nutrition and federal housing assistance.

Anyone who would be likely to require that broader range of help for more than 12 months in any three-year period was swept into the expanded definition.

1. This is an open door to keep rejecting people like my wife, even though I make a very good

salary.

More xenophobic idiocy by the "protectors of liberty and freedom."

Republicans have no problems giving billions to other countries, but lose their minds if a penny goes to a foreigner. . .hell, if a penny goes to anyone that isn't in the upper 5% of the social class.

2. This is lunacy. How can states impose policy of a

former administration on the current administration

3. It's out of the same basket of Secessionist dogma as the voting restrictions are.

The idea is that Federal Authority is determined and limited according to State legislation and the powers that the States claim through them. Very much of the Federalist Society BS.

5. It's just like DACA, and states forcing Trump to keep it.

We shouldnít be surprised it backfires on us on occasion.

We just need to have all our Iís dotted and Tís crossed before ending programs.

6. I am not sure

we aren't going to have to settle this via another Civil War.

This time, we won't screw the pooch on reconstruction.

The United States CANNOT continue to function like this.

It's time to take the gloves off.

Maybe every military base and federal official should be pulled out of states like Florida, Texas and South Carolina. We can't have federal officials and the military subject to the whims of what laws a state thinks it needs to follow.

Closing the military bases in these states is a national security issue. Better to close them, vice having to defend them from these nut jobs.
