The municipality of new York has examined the proposal of Donald trump on the limitation for immigrants living on welfare, the opportunity to obtain a green card, and released the results of the preliminary analysis.
Because of the President’s plan will suffer approximately 475 thousand immigrants, and a city lost over $420 million, said today, October 12, Bil De Blasio.
Public charge — the so-called person who is dependent on the state because of poverty or illness. According to the statement made in September the administration of the tramp, the immigrant will have to choose between the status of public charge and a chance for a green card or American citizenship. Changes in the rules of Public Charge Grounds, the White house argued that the prospect to receive state aid should not serve as a motive for moving to the United States.
“This proposal is another distortion of our fundamental values, the mayor said De Blasio. — To punish the family for assistance is not the American way, period. I, as a parent, I can’t imagine how to make that agonizing decision to choose between food on the table and risk not to get a green card in the future“.
The analysis carried out by the Directorate of immigration, the Department of social services and the mayor’s office of economic opportunity, showed that because of the program, trump will hurt hundreds of thousands of new Yorkers, including children, since many families will be forced to refuse to participate in the most important social protection programs.
“We will fight against any attempts to jeopardize the welfare of hundreds of thousands of immigrant families of middle and working class, said Commissioner of immigration at city hall Betta, Mostofi. — New Yorkers-immigrants are the backbone of our economy, and the last sentence of the administration trump can keep our progress on track to make new York the fairest city in the country“.
In the office of mayor of new York recalled that the new rule has not yet entered into force and even then it won’t affect immigrants who have already applied for a green card or visa.
