Trump Signs Memo to Enforce Clinton-Era Law Requiring Immigrant Sponsors to Pay for Welfare Use

The 1996 law, which has never been enforced, requires sponsors of immigrants to pay for the social services used by those whom they sponsored.

President Donald J. Trump Thursday signed a memorandum requiring the enforcement of a 1996 law passed by the administration of president William J. Clinton which requires the sponsors of American immigrants to pay for any social services used by those immigrants.

“Under the provision, each future sponsor of an immigrant would need to sign an affidavit that would spell out the financial responsibilities for the sponsored immigrant and create a collection mechanism to recover funds from the sponsor,” Fox News said. “The Department of Health and Human Services is to collect the data of the sponsors and the immigrants, while the Treasury Department would collect the funds.”

Enforcing the decades-old law is part of Trump’s plan to move the United States to a merit-based immigration system. The goal is to create a system of accountability for those who sponsor immigrants, in order to make sure that the immigrants do not become a drain on the American taxpayer.

“Our plan will transform America’s immigration system into the pride of our nation and the envy of the modern world,” Trump said in a Rose Garden press conference.

The move is a step in the right direction, as Trump’s immigration initiatives have been blocked by both Democrats and establishment Republicans.

Big League Politics reported:

As illegal border crossings surge, Democrats blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget. President Donald J. Trump declared a National Emergency to address the issue, with plans to divert Department of Defense funding for the project, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration.

In addition to failing to deliver wall funding during 2017 and 2018, 12 Republican Senators voted against the president’s emergency wall funding, including Sens. Mitt Romney (R-U

Biden Pledges “Not Another Foot” Of Border Wall Construction If He’s Elected President

A return to the open borders status quo.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden pledged that construction of new border wall would be stopped in the event he’s elected president, halting the progress that has been made in building a wall under President Donald Trump’s administration. President Trump proposed the construction of a border wall as his signature campaign proposal in 2016, and the federal government has built more then 265 miles of new border wall during his tenure.

There will not be another foot of wall construction in my administration,” President Biden promised in an interview with the Dallas Morning News. Biden went on to claim that the federal government would use “high-tech capacity” on the border, an approach long favored by Democrats who emphasize promptly placing illegal aliens into the asylum process over enforcing American immigration laws and deterring illegal entry.

Biden would also end litigation to confiscate land along the border for national security purposes. “End. Stop. Done. Over. Not going to do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We’re out. We’re not going to confiscate the land.

Biden did decline to commit to “tearing down” the border wall that has already been constructed.

Illegal immigration has begun to surge once again as the American economy progresses from the damage of the coronavirus pandemic, and Border Security have recently apprehended large groups of criminal aliens working with open borders groups in smuggling operations.

A hypothetical Biden presidency would all but invite hundreds of thousands if not millions of illegal immigrants to the country, with prospective border crossers hoping to take advantage of a lax immigration enforcement system focused on a few hardened criminals.
