Massive numbers of immigrants have been dropping their federal assistance programs out of fear of a proposed Trump rule to deny legal status to illegals on welfare, according to POLITICO.
The report says: “Agencies in at least 18 states say they’ve seen drops of up to 20 percent in enrollment, and they attribute the change largely to fears about immigration policy.”
Now, I hope you have been paying close attention to my wording here. Have you noticed how I’ve been saying “immigrants” instead of “illegal immigrants”? That’s because both legal AND illegal immigrants have been dropping the programs due to this proposed rule.
Don’t misunderstand, I’m not attacking the Trump administration in any way. Quite the opposite, in fact. I’m attacking the Left’s narrative surrounding the immigration debate.
The Daily Wire covered this story, and in their article, they say: “… some legal immigrants apparently believe their legal status will be in jeopardy because of rumors circulating about potential Trump Administration rules, according to health officials speaking to POLITICO.”
Legal immigrants shouldn’t have anything to fear. However, due to the Left’s narrative that Trump is a racist xenophobe who wants to make America white again and wants to kick every Latino person out of this country, these people fear something that isn’t there.
They shouldn’t have to fear this rule whatsoever. Someone’s legal status, if legitimate, can’t be revoked unless that person commits a crime. But because of the Left’s rhetoric, they are dropping the welfare programs out of fear of Trump.
Now, here’s the thing: I want people to drop these programs. I want people to live independently from government “assistance” that only serves to keep people poor. Thanks to Trump’s booming economy, millions of people are dropping welfare programs. And this proposed Trump rule should have this sort of effect on illegals.
If illegals are going to be here, they surely should not be able to live off of American taxpayers’ money. They should have this fear of a crackdown if they keep their programs. And they should opt out of these programs out of fear of deportation. They SHOULD be concerned with that possibility because THEY SHOULD NOT BE HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE, LET ALONE LIVING OFF OF YOUR MONEY!
But this sort of fear should not be present in legal immigrants. If they came here 100% legally and legitimately, they should not fear their legal status being revoked or affected by this rule. But because the Left always tries to make the immigration issue an issue about race and not rule of law, this is the result. People who have the right to be here being scared out of their minds because of the lies the Left constantly utters.
It’s shameful and disgusting. But hey, that’s the Left for you.
They use such disgusting scare tactics to pressure people into voting for them. They used this when they created the KKK after the emancipation proclamation to get black people to stop supporting Republicans either through making them too scared to do it or through ensuring they were no longer alive to support Republicans. Frankly, they do pretty much the same thing today, only without the KKK.
And they do pretty much the same thing to Latinos, LGBT people, women and any other minority. Not the killing them part but the scaring the heck out of them by lying about Republicans. The Left makes Latinos fear Republicans who will supposedly deport them just because they’re a darker skin tone than them. The Left makes LGBT people fear Republicans who will supposedly force the gay out of them with a combination of electro-shock therapy and Jesus. The Left makes women fear Republicans by saying they want women to not have the right to vote or do anything and not have the “right” to kill their own children. Granted, that last part is true, but it’s not a bad thing to want people to not kill their own children.
Oddly enough, when it comes to white people, they don’t use fear. They use guilt. White guilt. Making white people believe they should pay for things they didn’t do (that Democrats actually did, and yet, they don’t apologize for). So they scare minorities into voting Democrat and guilt white people into voting Democrat.
And clearly, it’s been working. If legal immigrants fear Trump will affect their legal status in any way, that’s the effects of the Left’s horrible and erroneous rhetoric.
Frankly, if the news about Nike committing brand suicide with endorsing Colin Kaepernick and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation turning into a circus weren’t dominating the mainstream media, I could easily see the MSM using this to attack Trump, saying that his proposed rule is making immigrants scared. I mean, that’s what’s happening, but it’s because legal immigrants have been LIED TO about Trump’s intentions.
From what I can see, this proposed rule is meant to deny illegals legal status through these programs and to catch any illegals using the database from the programs. The natural response from illegals is what’s happening: opting out of the programs. And either way, that’s a win for Trump and America because the illegals either keep their programs and eventually get deported with no chance of gaining legal status or they stay in the country but no longer get your money to live off of.
But that’s just from the illegal immigrants side. When it comes to the legal ones, again, they should not fear this rule as it does not really affect them at all, but they do because of the b.s. the Left loves to throw out there.
The result is people who might actually need the program and who came here the right way being scared out of being helped by the government. Granted, while I don’t believe the government helps much and the scariest words you can hear are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help”, there are people who could legitimately use the help these programs provide. And those people are being scared out of them because of the Left’s lies.
In short, the Left’s rhetoric is hurting the people who should not be affected whatsoever by the news of a proposed rule change by the Trump administration.
Again, the Left is disgusting.
