Thus, immigrants may refuse to issue visas or residence permit in case these people use the help of the state, or, in the opinion of the U.S. government may do in the future.
Angering immigrant rights and economic equality advocates alike, the Trump administration has made official its proposal to deny permanent residency, or green cards, to immigrants who have used public assistance programs including nutritional or housing aid.
When it comes to deciding how likely a prospective immigrant is to use these benefits, the government could consider any number of listed criteria. The "public charge" concept has a long history in immigration law, DHS noted, though the proposal would be a much broader take on it.
The public benefits proposed to be designated in this rule are federal, state, local, or tribal cash assistance for income maintenance, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid (with limited exceptions for Medicaid benefits paid for an "emergency medical condition", and for certain disability services related to education), Medicare Part D Low Income Subsidy, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps), institutionalization for long-term care at government expense, Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program, Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance, and Public Housing.
"Today's announcement by the Trump Administration is a backdoor, administrative end-run to substantially reduce legal immigration that, if implemented, will hurt our entire country", said FWD.us President Todd Schulte. Immigrants who already have green cards - legal permanent residents - wouldn't be swept up in the changes for now.

"This proposed rule will implement a law passed by Congress meant to promote immigrant self-sufficiency and protect finite resources by ensuring that they are not likely to become burdens on American taxpayers", Nielsen said.
The proposal will publish in the Federal Register in coming weeks and then trigger a 60-day public comment period.
The administration estimated the regulations would affect about 382,000 people a year.
These benefits include public housing, healthcare and food stamps. Previous versions of the rule would have penalized immigrants for using those benefits.
"This proposed rule does the opposite and makes clear that the Trump administration continues to prioritise money over family unity by ensuring that only the wealthiest can afford to build a future in this country".
