Trump Just Announced New Rules To Deny Visas To Legal Immigrants For Being Poor

This is a new low, even for him.

If you were somehow still under the guise that Donald Trump only has “issues” with “illegal” immigrants then you’ve either been living underneath a rock somewhere or you’re just as big a cruel fucking fool as he is.

Donald Trump’s anger is far from limited to only those that “illegally” come into the United States. The bare-bones fact of the business is, Trump absolutely loathes any and every individual that’s not white. And his newest immigration policy offers cold, hard, irrefutable proof of that.

Per new immigration rules just released by the Trump Administration, Donald intends to outright deny visas and permanent residency to thousands upon thousands of LEGAL immigrants if the administration deems them too poor.


The new rule will essentially add an income standard clause to temporary and permanent visa applications and those that fail to meet those standards or any individual receiving public assistance such as welfare, SNAP benefits, public housing, or Medicaid health insurance will automatically have their application denied.

Experts are now warning that this could be Trump’s most severe immigration policy effort to gravely limit both undocumented and legal immigrants dwelling in America.

According to The Migration Policy Institute, an organization that specializes in researching immigration issues, Trump’s new, cruel policy could result in the denial of more than half of all family-based visa applications.

Of course, the new sickening policy was introduced by none other than Stephen Miller who claims that the move is intended to ensure that immigrants are “self-sufficient.”

Acting director of the US citizenship and immigration services Ken Cuccinelli is denying that the policy is targeting Hispanics, saying, “If we had been having this conversation 100 years ago, it would have applied to more Italians.”

“The principle driving it is an old American value and that’s self-sufficiency,” Cuccinelli told Fox News.

“It will also have the long-term benefit of protecting taxpayers by ensuring people who are immigrating to this country don’t become public burdens, that they can stand on their own two feet, as immigrants in years past have done.”

But yet, no one sees Melania’s white ass being shipped back to Slovenia or her visa jerked out of her hands.

This isn’t an immigration issue at all. This is a racism issue. Donald Trump doesn’t like brown people. And he’s doing everything in his power to ensure that he purges our country of anyone that’s not as pasty white as he is.
