Hair Füror Has (Immigrants Bake) His Cake and Eats It Too

“K-Pasta, amoebas!”

I was stunned to read that Hair Füror, a man who employs a “roving crew of Latin American employees” to perform masonry and maintenance work at his winery and various golf clubs around the country, is now applying his tender mercies to stop legal immigrants from receiving benefits:

“The Trump administration issued a final rule Monday that allows federal officials to deny green cards to legal immigrants who have received certain public benefits or who are deemed likely to do so in the future.

“The ‘public charge’ regulation — pushed by White House senior adviser Stephen Miller and other hard-line officials — is the latest part of President Donald Trump’s vast immigration crackdown. While Trump has railed against migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, the new regulation represents his most ambitious effort yet to restrict legal immigration as he gears up for his 2020 reelection campaign. … The benefits covered under the regulation include food stamps, welfare, Medicaid, and housing assistance.”

So let’s see: if you seek asylum you are screwed, if you immigrate legally you are screwed, BUT if you sneak over the border you can work for Trump at one of his resorts for low wages and no benefits, and if you speak out, well, you’re deported.

He’s working all sides.

UPDATE 1: Axios  –

The big picture: The rule would penalize immigrants who use or are likely to use public benefit programs such as food stamps, housing assistance or Medicaid.

  • The rule would also likely create a “chilling effect” on immigrants who are eligible — or whose kids are eligible — to use certain public benefit programs. Some immigrants will choose not to use the benefits out of fear of being penalized, according to immigration experts.
  • Immigrants reportedly began turning down food stamps after early reports about the rule last year.

    And just who will be deemed likely?

    AOTK!

    Stephen Miller is the true Nazi in this administration.

      Oh, it gets worse. If you go to the consulate in Country X to get an immigration visa, they are now supposed to ask you what your credit score is (!!!) and also whether you already have “private health insurance”. So e.g. does Brazilian private health insurance continue to work if a person emigrates to the US? I imagine it does not. But, this is all about trying to restrict immigrants to upper middle class people.

      All four of my grandparents came to this country from Ireland just a little over 100 years ago with very little money in their pockets and were further impoverished by the Great Depression. What saved both sides of the family and let them eventually get to the middle class was the GI Bill of Rights.

    I like the way this maladministration can prognosticate. No, I don’t like the way they do that. They do nothing I like. They do everything I despise.

    The advance copy of the regulation was some 837 pages long, so I’m still wading through this nonsense, but so far, I’m not finding any protections for persons with disabilities, which would surely spark a court challenge. There are a few protections in the bill for active military and their families, and for certain applicant/beneficiaries of “protective visas” like “U” visa crime victims, “T” visa victims of trafficking, “special immigrant juveniles”, or victims/survivors covered by the Violence Against Women’s Act (VAWA.) This rule will also apply to those on temporary visas, so they would not be able to extend or change their visa status if they accept government benefits (they aren’t allowed to receive much at all under the law.) They are looking for receipt of benefits for an aggregate of more than 12 months in any 36 month period, usig “government math” that would make your head spin. There was an earlier version of this rule that covered persons applying for visas at U.S. Consular Posts abroad, which has had the effect of increasing denials of immigrant visa applications at the U.S. Consular Post (handling immigrant visas) from about 7 denials for public charge grounds per year before the rule to several thousand denials in the last year.

    My post above meant to specify those increased denials were at the U.S. Consular post in Mexico, but I forgot to include that.

    Between Oct. 1, 2018 and July 29, 2019, the State Department denied 5,343 immigrant visa applications for Mexican nationals on the grounds that the applicants…risked becoming a “public charge,” according to the statistics. That’s up from just seven denials for Mexican applicants in fiscal year 2016, the last full year under former President Barack Obama.

    Since this is a Christian Nation Under God I’m sure the churches will step up to the plate and fill the void. Sorry, cash only, because forgiveness ain’t free. Bless your heart.

    So America will become the first country with virtual agriculture — all the food listed as ready on the computers not available in grocery store because there no one to do the gritty work.

      Pyed – Fear not! For Trump has a plan to achieve ZERO unemployment: you WILL work, in the Fields, on the Farms, or in the Factories, or you won’t eat, simple as that. Also! To discourage homelessness, and bring the % of homeless down to near zero, home ownership is hereby mandated, although in some cases, renters will be allowed, and if you’re “deemed” to be chronically homeless due to mental illness, or drug addiction, or any other mitigating factor, then guess what? WE HAVE CAMPS FOR THAT!!! Camps that will encourage “right thinking,” and if you’re not re-adjusted by the camps, well, too bad – Society doesn’t need you, and you’re nothing but a burden to be laid down at the side of the road.
