Should Trump Ban Social Security For Illegal Immigrants?

One of the biggest problems that America is facing an extended period is unlawful trespassing from the southern border by the side of Illegal immigrants.

We all can see that when Donald Trump became President of the United States the number of immigrants dropped but, America is still facing with this severe problem.

According to the latest released news, President Trump calls to cut off tax breaks for illegal immigrants.

Trump said this at his press conference, Aug. 2, 2017:

“The RAISE Act prevents new migrants and new immigrants from collecting welfare … They’re not going to come in and just immediately go and collect welfare. That doesn’t happen under the RAISE Act. They can’t do that.”

We all know that under current law, workers must provide a Social Security number to receive the earned income tax credit. To claim the refundable portion of the child tax credit, though, only an individual taxpayer identification number is necessary, which the IRS issues to workers who are not authorized to work but need it for tax purposes.

As a part of the administration’s efforts to restrict legal and illegal immigration, President Trump endorsed a sweeping Senate bill that would slash legal immigration levels by half over a decade. The Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act would create a points system for employment-based green cards so that people applying for visas would need to meet certain requirements.

Trump said the points system would not allow immigrants to “just immediately go and collect welfare.” He is extending the five-year ban so that new immigrants would not be able to benefit from public assistance that their family members may qualify for, because they are legal permanent residents who lived in the United States for more than five years or were born in the United States.

Also, at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, President Trump said:

“I believe the time has come for new immigration rules which say those seeking admission into our country must be able to support themselves financially and should not use welfare for at least five years.”

Currently, one thing is for sure, certain types of immigrants are exempt from the five-year block, including children, refugees, and US military personnel and their families.

Also, undocumented immigrants and people living in the US on non-immigrant visas, such as temporary foreign workers, are also barred from accessing most benefits.
