Gov. Newsom Labels Latest Trump Immigration Change ‘Reckless Policy’ - 08-12


California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday dismissed as “reckless policy” a Trump administration rule change that could make it harder for immigrants to get green cards. Under the “public charge” rule set to be published in the Federal Register on Wednesday, receiving benefits like food stamps, Medicaid or housing subsidies would count against an immigrants’s chance of getting a green card or visa. Previously the rule only considered cash subsidies.
