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.

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

Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Anti-E-Verify Republicans On Notice
Some Republicans want to water down the proposal.
As a battle over a strong statewide E-Verify law heats up in Tallahassee, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis is cautioning Republicans who seek to neuter the law over the ire they’ll face from conservative voters.
Florida is set to pass a E-Verify law that will prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Currently in the Florida Senate committee process, big business interests are seeking to institute special exemptions for industries that commonly hire illegals.
DeSantis is pushing back hard against the effort to put free passes in the legislation for the agricultural industry. Another area of contention is over the law’s enforcement mechanism. Elements seeking to neuter the Florida E-Verify system want employers to merely promise they aren’t hiring illegals, as opposed to making them definitively prove it.
DeSantis was clear about warning Republicans who try to neuter the e-Verify proposal when speaking to the press outside of the state capital on Wednesday.

DeSantis’ warning to Republicans who tacitly support giveaways of cheap labor and non-enforcement of immigration law should be taken seriously by any legislator who considers themselves a conservative, and relies upon a conservative constituency.
Senator Tom Lee, who represents Florida’s 20th district, is cautioning that Governor DeSantis could veto the entire bill and force lawmakers to start over if they stuff it full of exemptions for scofflaw big business interests. He says that the effort to make employers merely promise to hire illegals is no different than instituting an impotent “honor system.”
The law currently will mandate that businesses in Florida verify their employees’ legal status by July of 2022.
