Trump To Ask Congress To Ban Immigrants From Receiving Welfare For Five Years

President Trump will ask Congress to consider a law that would prevent new immigrants to the United States from receiving various forms of public assistance for a period of five years after arriving to the country. Trump announced this on Wednesday evening at a rally in Grand Rapids, Iowa.

    Oh, great. If it ever actually becomes US law, I will expect a tweet from PM Justin Globalist Trudeau inviting in all the immigrants of the world into Canada since, well, uh, uh, y’know, uh, uh, budgets have a way of balancing themselves.

    Once again, Trump is amazingly right on with his policies. Policies such as this should have been enshrined into Law generations ago. No-one handed my 4X great grandfather a welfare cheque and keys to a hotel room when he landed on the shores of the Canadian colonies 200 years ago. No doubt there are Leftist heads exploding with rage all over America right now. I love it.

      on the farm you might get supper after a 14 hour day
      sleep in the barn to keep warm

      My Irish Grandfather was offered diddilly squat when he showed up in 1912 with a wife and a bunch of kids.

    Again. This isn’t bigotry. This is pure common sense. Leftists think every Human on Earth has an inborn right to come to the First World any way they can and commence to suck the public coffers dry as recompense for perceived injustices. Sub-Sahara Africa is exploding with population growth at levels never seen in history. If even 5% of the The Third World arrived in America over the next decade with hands out for welfare assistance there would be no America left long before the mid 21st century.

      There is a string rationale for mass-sterilizing a couple of generations of sub-Saharan Africans. They are literally multiplying like rats. I believe Sudan averages 9.4 children per female.

      • LairdKintyre

        That is one thing the Arabs knew. They castrated their sub Saharan slaves. Which is why you see virtually no black people in the middle East.

        just think of the medical expense we will be paying ..

    Astonishing that such a sensible thing hasn’t been proposed by any previous President until now.
    What sort of shitty worthless immigrant arrives in America (or Canada) and then goes on welfare for five years?

        C’mon now. They don’t like calling it welfare. I believe the polite term they prefer is “”jizya””. Don’t be racist. We are a multicultural society

    • LairdKintyre

      My forefathers didn’t have that option. My last immigrant ancestor arrived here in 1845. Back in those days of you didn’t feel like working once you here, you simply starved to death or died from the elements.

      • Justin St.Denis

        My grandmother arrived here as an immigrant after WWII and got zilch by way of government largesse. She had three children to support to boot. That was about 70 years ago.

      Most. Especially Muslims. All Somalis.

      • bob e

        we need somalis like we need bad DNA ..
        ohh .. that is the same thing ..

    • bob e

      it is all set up by bogus christian groups who make billions
      off the refugee scam ..

    Actually Canada does have a law like that. When I sponsered my husband over from England, I had to show that I had enough money in the bank to support us both until he could get his permanent residency card (Three years!!!) and we both had to sign documents saying that neither of us would be able to collect welfare (not that either of us ever had, or would!) for a period of five years. But LEGAL immigrants follow the rules, and generally want to be in Canada as productive people. Refugees and queue jumpers are another beast entirely.

    • lzzrd

      same law here in the US…….same for LEGAL immigrants following the rules/laws…….

    • Alain

      I went through the same for my wife including proof that she had a clean bill of health and no criminal record. We both found it reasonable and normal, but things have completely changed since then. Frankly as far as I am concerned there should never be any special benefits for immigrants. It is for the host country to decide whom they accept and if that person will be a positive contribution to the country, not the other way round.

        Same here, but, worth every penny.

    I think Trump sometimes makes these proposals knowing full well they won’t pass to expose the Hippocrates in government.

  • Clausewitz

    That used to be the standard in Canada back in the 70’s. I “sponsored” my cousins from Ireland. They had no access to welfare, unemployment, or ‘free’ health care for the first five years. In the end I was responsible financially if they fucked up. Luckily they were both engineers with jobs waiting for them so there never was a problem.
