New Immigration Rule Could Impact Half A Million Mass. Residents

Officials will evaluate age, health status, income and other factors, and "no one factor alone" will decide an applicant's case, Cuccinelli said.

Undocumented immigrants would not be affected - unless an avenue opens up for them to apply for green cards or visas since they are largely ineligible for public aid.

The DHS estimate was far lower than an analysis by Boundless Immigration, a tech company that shepherds immigration through the US immigration system.

As the Trump administration continues to roll back safeguards for immigrants in the United States, the White House is now going one step further by rolling out an enforceable version of the so-called "public charge" rule in the coming days.

The updated rule will go into effect in October and will define "public charge", a longtime part of immigration law that ensures immigrants are self-sufficient, as someone who receives one of more benefits for more than 12 months in a 36-month period.

Immediately after the rule was announced, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) said it would file a lawsuit to stop it from taking effect.

"This latest racially-motivated policy is a painful reminder that behind [President] Donald Trump's bluster, bureaucrats like [top adviser] Stephen Miller will stop at nothing to attack immigrants and destroy our legal immigration system", Hincapié said in astatement.

The ruling could impact numerous 22 million non-citizen legal residents of the country, and the estimated 10.5 million unauthorized immigrants, most long-term residents in both groups.

Cuccinelli said Monday that USCIS had not determined a specific dollar-amount figure of what the potential benefit of this rule is to taxpayers.

He added that it may not be the immigrants' fault that they were dependent on public services, but that it was a drain on US taxpayers nonetheless as a result of bad immigration policies that encouraged them to come.

Certain forms of Medicaid, Social Security Income and Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) - or food stamps - are all considered as public benefits under the new rule, among other things.

Ken Cuccinelli serves as acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services office for the Trump Administration and as such, he led a White House briefing on Monday morning.

Cuccinelli argues that immigrants who have used these benefits can still advocate for getting a green card or legal status.

The Trump administration has introduced a new "public charge" rule to cut down on legal immigrants who are unlikely to support themselves without government welfare.

Paired with last week's enforcement raids on food processing plants in Mississippi, Monday's announcement amounts to a concerted effort by the administration to limit legal immigration and crack down on illegal immigration.

In a study last month, the Urban Institute said the new regulations, when proposed past year, were already driving immigrant families to curtail their use of public services. "We're simply making effective what Congress had already put on the books, so there's no reason for any particular group to feel like this is targeting them", he said.
