The Bloomberg headline says “Trump Administration Moves to End Food Stamps for 750,000”, and that sounds bad during an election year. But as Scott Ott digs deeper into the story, he finds details that don’t make great anti-Trump clickbait.
New immigration rules from the Trump administration would deny green cards to more people under an existing law designed to keep an immigrant from becoming a “public charge”. Critics say this proves that President Trump is not merely anti-illegal immigration, but anti-immigrant (and likely racist). At a time when America has more jobs than applicants, if Trump tightens green card access to keep legal immigrants off the dole, is he cutting off the best source of new labor and of future proud Americans?
