Federal Judges Lash Out on Trump Immigration Policies


Judges in three states ruled against the proposed policy that would keep back green cards to immigrants who receive public assistance such as Medicaid.
President Trump’s immigration agenda ran into legal blockades in courts around the country on Friday as judges in four states barred his administration from trying to stop green cards from people who use public benefits.
In three rulings, federal judges in New York, California and Washington State issued injunctions temporarily blocking the “Public Charge” rule, which would impose serious impediments to legal residency for those who use benefits such as Medicaid or those deemed likely to use them in the future.
The rule, widely seen as an attempt to prevent poor immigrants or in need of help, was one of the Trump administration’s signature immigration policies, but it stuck in a legal brick wall in three corners of the country on a single day.
Lawsuits filed by 21 states and the District of Columbia also argued that the new regulations, which had been due to take effect soon, discriminate against low-income earners from developing countries and undermine the well-being of children whose families might avoid using nutritional, health and other programs.

As Courts block Trump rule to deny green cards and visas to low-income immigrants. So, what do you think? Drop your comment down below…
