Building On The Reason For Donald Trump To Resign – He’s Stupid – ‘Trump proposes a law that’s existed for 20 years’
‘Trump received a standing ovation and pledged his administration would put the legislation into effect “very shortly.”
‘President Trump called for a new law barring immigrants from receiving welfare for at least five years at a rally on Wednesday’.
But neither Trump nor nearly 6,000 of his die-hard supporters seemed to realize that the law has already existed for more than 20 years’.
“I believe the time has come for new immigration rules which say 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 told the crowd in Cedar Rapids, Iowa’.
‘As The Hill reported, President Bill Clinton signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act in 1996. The law prevents immigrants from receiving federal benefits, such as food stamps, Medicaid, and Social Security for five years after entering the country’.
