President Donald Trump announced that ‘the time has come’ for ‘new immigration rules’ and that his administration would be ‘putting in legislation to that effect very shortly’ to change rules on welfare for immigrants.
“I believe the time has come for new immigration rules which say 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.”
Enough worrying is the statement that Russell George, the Treasury Department’s inspector general, give in a report disclosed by The Washington Times:
“Cases of employment identity theft can cause a significant burden to innocent taxpayers, including the incorrect computation of taxes based on income that does not belong to them.”
According to the statistics, 87 % of forms filed online using ITINs showed income credited to a stolen Social Security number. The IRS estimated as many as 2.4 million illegals filing taxes every year with the Social Security numbers are not authorized to have them.
Foreigners with non-immigrant visas and those who don’t have legal status are prohibited from those benefits altogether. And Trump’s plan would also allow the US to refuse entry to people who are likely to need state assistance by becoming a ‘public charge.’
