Conservative organization America First Legal is vowing to “strenuously” fight the Biden administration’s decision to decrease obstacles for illegal migrants to obtain welfare, former Trump advisor Stephen Miller exclusively told the Daily Caller News Foundation Thursday.
“Biden’s lawless rule flips that on its head and says: if you want a lifetime of free welfare come to the USA and our citizens will put in extra shifts to finance whatever benefits you need. This is wrong. It’s illegal. It’s enormously destructive. And America First Legal will strenuously fight it,” Miller, who is the founder of the organization, told the DCNF.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Thursday changes to the “Public Charge” rule applied to noncitizens “likely at any time to become a public charge,” that would exempt certain noncitizens receiving some welfare benefits from deportation. The new changes allow noncitizens to benefit from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Medicaid and housing benefits and benefits related to immunizations or testing for communicable diseases without deportation.
“This new regulation is a further and drastic evisceration of federal immigration law, a total gutting of the longstanding and bedrock statutory requirement that newcomers to America be financially self-sufficient and not in any way reliant on taxpayer largesse,” Miller said.
