When will Donald get the notion in his head that he won the election?
He does not have to campaign anymore. Now he is proposing an immigration law that is already in place…
President Trump in a rally on Wednesday evening said immigrants who enter the United States should not be eligible for welfare benefits for five years, though such a law has already existed for 20 years.
“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 a crowd in Cedar Rapids, Iowa at the U.S. Cellular Center.
The president said his administration would be “putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.”
But such a law is already in effect and has been in place since 1996.
Known as the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA), the legislation was passed during the administration of former President Bill Clinton and said that an immigrant is “not eligible for any Federal means-tested public benefit” for 5 years, which starts on the date the immigrant enters the country…”
I try very hard not to go the route of ad hominem attacks on his advisors, but, for real, who is driving this bus?
