We all know that currently in our state we have a political battle were President Donald Trump is fighting with all forces to convince the Congress to write some legislation that will bar those coming to America from tapping into taxpayer entitlements for five years.
Statistics say that millions of illegal immigrants are using food stamps each day from school lunch, WIC and SNAP programs.
For the record, Trump wants to bolster the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, giving federal authorities the ability to deport those coming to this nation who take taxpayer welfare benefits within their first five in-country years. Trump only wants to underscore it and reignite it.
President Trump on Aug. 2, 2017, said:
“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.”
In his speech in Youngstown, Ohio, July 25, 2017, Trump said:
“We also believe that those seeking to immigrate into our country should be able to support themselves financially and should not be able to use welfare for themselves or the household for a period of at least five years.”
The only people who should have a problem with this ban are those who live off the taxpayers – or those who gain from providing taxpayer assistance. Because Trump has been reviewing DACA to stem illegal immigration, and he should be considering whether food stamps, provided by taxpayers, should be given to them.
We think that on this issue Trump already has the will of the American citizens.
