Why Trump's new immigration policy is pig-ignorant

It’s possible for a person to be ignorant. We all are, sometimes. And anyone who has lived in Donald Trump’s America knows what a pig looks like — “a greedy, dirty or unpleasant person” can be found in the White House.

This week, we’re reminded that it’s possible for the Trump administration’s immigration policy to be both piggish and ignorant. Call it pig-ignorant, or “extremely stupid or uneducated,” per Oxford English Dictionary..

One refers, of course, to the administration’s new guidelines for granting green cards denoting permanent residency status to legal — yes, legal — immigrants. If a legal immigrant has the temerity to use government services — sign up for Medicaid, for example, or get hurt on the job and claim disability benefits — no green card for you.

Incredibly, the administration would even use credit scores and other measures to screen out people who might use services later.

The president with thousands of lawsuits, mostly over unpaid bills, President Tax Fraud, President Trump University, the man who went broke running casinos and has doubled the federal deficit from 2015 levels, wants to see immigrants’ credit reports.

And stand in — stop laughing — judgment.
