President Trump Says Immigrants Should Not Get Welfare for Five Years

President Donald Trump said in a speech on Wednesday night that he would soon introduce legislation that immigrants to America should not receive welfare benefits for at least five years.

The new measure will stipulate that "those seeking admission into our country must be able to support themselves financially and should not use welfare for a period of at least five years," Trump said as the crowd of thousands at the campaign-style rally exploded into extended applause.

But those requirements, or something similar to them, already exist.

Legislation backed by then-President Bill Clinton, called the "Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996," states immigrants are "not eligible for any federal means-tested public benefit" for five years beginning when they come into the country. However, the law has exceptions and additional legislation since its passage has also affected eligibility.

The White House did not respond to a request for more information about the legislation, which Trump promised would be coming "very shortly."

The president also said that "those coming into our country must embrace our values" and he renewed calls for a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, saying publicly what he reportedly had said privately to fellow lawmakers — that the wall would include solar panels.

"We're thinking about building the wall as a solar wall," Trump told supporters gathered at the U.S. Cellular Center here. "This way, Mexico will have to pay much less money."

Mexican officials have repeatedly said they will not pay for the wall.

In Uk ,you don't have recourse to public fund till after you get your indefinite leave to remain in 3yrs if your husband or wife is British or 5yrs if he or she has a settled status,except you apply for indefinite leave to remain under domestic violence,which you can do even if it's after one day you enter the UK,then you will get housing and job seekers allowance instantly(through domestic violence concession).

Dear anonymous, Kindly shut your mouth!If people can afford it, then let them go for it. At time, it's not for citizenship. But for good medicals. With the issue my baby had, if we had him here, i can bet he might not have survived. ( someone with the same issue as my son , sent a mail afterward that she lost her baby)....so pls, though i love my country, until we have better medical system. ..let's continue 'anchoring'.
