Trump Admin Cracks Down On Legal Immigrants Receiving Public Assistance | Craig Melvin | MSNBC 1


In October 2019, it could become harder for legal immigrants on welfare and taxpayer assistance to obtain green cards. The Trump administration will soon require immigrants to prove they will not need any form of public assistance if they are changing their immigration status.

    Lets start with cutting off companies who hire outside of everifi all federal 💰 like trump inc

    • Gary Davidson | August 12, 2019 at 5:22 PM | Reply

      @Wuggy Buttz current law is a 10000 💵 fine per hire and we should hold off all federal money who hire outside of everifi

    • Mueller time!

    • @Wuggy Buttz everything you just stated has not been verified or came to light yet and since these companies are in the poultry processing business I’m sure some fed inspectors would have noticed they were using slave labor and the conditions they were working in so lets get the facts first before making any kind of crazy judgments maybe they did maybe they didn’t just wait for factual evidence and then go nuts.

  5. As America leaves its’ own country behind, social programs will collapse, healthcare all but a disaster, nobody is allowed in, and farmers crops rot in the fields..Dystopia begins….Rules unheard of enforced….. This version of “trump maids tale” will air on FOX TV. The potus will rebuild with the White Nationalist ideals he spews inside his own wall. God Help the USA while this man further tears it to pieces…and is being allowed to. Is anybody going to stop this ?

  6. Trump is Ridiculous and Racist to the core! He still has undocumented people working for him!

    • Beverly Glover Why give him that? At no point has anyone claimed Trump to be a Saint. Funny how you say Tards wanted Hillary. that is why we LAUGH at you and make fun of you.

    • test Testing FAKE racist? Hmmm You forgot the I in your last word. That’s what your brain seems to be in.

      @Michael Shaw hate to break it to you while your probably in bed under posters of Maxine and Pelosi but your in a cnn, msnbc cult living in fantasy land

      @princeoftidds NYT and WaPo? Your right no one believes anything they have to say

  7. In Montana, russian immigrants are a huge population there. They not only get food stamps and medical but get housing right away while every other immigrant population can not apply for anything. They even qualify for government loans to buy houses.
    I truly believe companies that hire illegal immigrants should face more than just a monetary hit. One of their practices is that if they don’t want to make payroll, they call ICE so they don’t have to pay. These companies should be forced to pay their employees a livable wage and provide healthcare so that they can entice the regular workforce to come back.

    • Tod Wilkinson | August 12, 2019 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      demoncrats want mexican rapists, child traffickers and murderers from mexico to illegally immigrate here

    • How many raids in Montana I wonder? This guy in the WH is a blatant racist. Democrats need to point out the discrepancy on who is being targeted.

  8. Man Trump is doing everything he can to stop colored people from coming here!!!

    • [RACE CARD]
      DENIED ❎ ❎ ❎ 👈😆🇺🇸

    • @Ace1000ks1975 That’s less weird than you’re trying to make it considering the country is 74% white.

    • Legacy of Free domain | August 13, 2019 at 9:15 AM | Reply

      Glenn V No that they will be given a separate treatment for the same offense. They are leading in the recipient of welfare.

    • Legacy of Free domain | August 13, 2019 at 9:20 AM | Reply

      Don Williams So America is now a third world nation? It can be hard to support a falling republic. But proceed, comrade, to do so.

    • @Legacy of Free domain That’s correct, whites are the leading in the recipient of welfare, they are also responsible for most crimes, whites however are for thesame reason also responsible for most of the pooping, breathing and sleeping, because, you know, there’s about 500% more of them than any other race.

  9. 0:20 you were trying to rip down people for not being self-sufficient when most people are making a starvation wages in this country. And are one paycheck away from Financial ruin if anything her life possibly goes wrong. Yes you’d like that big scary immigrants to be self-sufficient. I would like all people in this country to have that same opportunity and ability.

  10. To be clear, the reason employers hire only undocumented workers is to avoid paying matching payroll taxes and Social Security on said workers.
    They are running two sets of books, they could be prosecuted for tax fraud but …. Republicans.

    • Mainely Hmmm I wonder why you don’t hear Dems NOW that trump is POTUS saying what they said BEFORE he was? Why do Dems not punish Sanctuary Cities? Aiding and Abetting . or punish those with FAKE documents and stolen SSN? or say NO ILLEGAL can have ANY Gov’t asst.? Oh yeah, the NEW voting block for them.

    • Well I don’t see democrats doing anything about it.

    • @Don Williams Are you kidding? Democrats. Trump hires them all the time. Not saying Democratic employers don’t hire them but Trump hires them then doesn’t pay them. No surprise, he doesn’t pay contractors either. Tons of evidence but you want to talk about democrats. Go watch Hannity and he wiĺl make you feel good about the lies you are told to believe. Good disciple.

    Some one/body, please do something to shut this guy up, or to get him gone!!

    • @Dicky Jones 🤷🏾‍♂️I’m still waiting 🤔🕑🕝🕒⏰

    • @Dicky Jones hey Dicky your failed knock off fake pretender messiah wannabe dictator in chieftards is spreading hatred and pushing for violence so please just 🚫plz just go take your medicine you will be ok and if you have any weapons in your house plz turn them in to the closest law enforcement agency… your gonna be ok 🙏🏽👍🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

    • Beverly Glover | August 13, 2019 at 8:11 AM | Reply

      Dicky Jones Trump said he would pay the lawyer fees of anyone who was violent against his protesters. What do you call that? And he has said many things like that. That is only one example.

  12. Scapegoating and attacking the poor, while providing 2 trillion dollars in welfare for the rich and billion dollar corporations. Let’s punish the poor, because clearly they haven’t been punished enough. It’s the Republican way.

    • Democrats will not use the welfare system to buy foreign votes. The welfare system is for Americans.

    • @Dicky Jones
      Ahh… Dicky, where ya been?!
      Been a while.🌼

    • Beverly Glover | August 13, 2019 at 8:18 AM | Reply

      brian rawson And Canada’s medical system was not meant to provide their medicine to Americans. That’s ok though, isn’t it? It’s ok to take, but not to give.

  13. So Trump and friends are going after the same people they illegally bring in and hire to work at their companies.

    • @Ro G 647,500. That’s how many people Amazon employs. Learn how business works before you open your mouth about corporate taxes.

    • Robin Riser-James He gave them a $1.5 trillion tax cut so I think t’rump’s “work” is done! 😆😂😝

    • brian rawson Aww, look at you defending the richest man in the world’s $900 billion corporation. Soooo cute!! 😍
      Zero federal taxes on $11 annual profit. Not revenue. Profit! That’s not fair share. I pay 30% and sales tax and property tax – federal and state. So just because amazon does some good (employs workers) that’s not carte Blanche to exploit loopholes elsewhere.

      @Ro G how you lunatic left love to twist everything to fit your agenda. KAG

  14. No shame. US under Trump. Send us your white blue eye and preferably rich. No more coming to this nation, working hard and finding your way up the ladder.
    People fall on hard times it doesn’t make them unfit to become residents of this nation.

  15. Oh this is gonna make America great again for sure! (Sarcasm trumpytards)

  16. In a country where you can work two jobs and still not make enough to get off assistance? This is insane.

    • should have gone to trade school!

      Since it is so hard for legitimate Americans who were born and raised here , do we really need to admit a bunch of deadbeat foriegn people into the mix

    • Educate yourself , then you will get off handouts

    • Robin Riser-James | August 13, 2019 at 9:32 AM | Reply

      @brian rawson seems funny that as a single mother with 4 children as soon as I started my job at burger king I got kicked off food stamps and lost my medical card. They didn’t give me time to get ahead or get caught up on bills, it was instantly. I’m born and raised in the good ole USA.

    We need to kickout Trumps wife and inlaws…Take away those green cards!!!!Take away their citizenship.

  18. Cuccinelli is a liar and a thug. That much is no surprise; those are qualifications for any +rump appointment. However, the fact that he said, _”People of any income (can) stand on their own two feet,”_ should be seen as an admission that he is intellectually incompetent to hold his position, and *he should be forced to step down immediately.*

    If what he said were true, no one would need more than one job.

    If what he said were true, *Walmart* workers wouldn’t be dependent on multiple forms of public assistance.

    Unless TheCooch wants to admit that he is lying, in furtherance of racist thuggery, he should be forced to step down immediately, *for gross incompetence.*

    If he DOES want to admit it, then he should be forced to step down immediately, *for lying, in furtherance of racist thuggery.*

    Trump is a horrific tyrant, a monster, a cruel, sadistic devil…. That’s why his base loves him.

  20. Thank God, so sick of my taxpayer’s dollars getting spent by drunken sailor politicians.
