GOP Senator Drops Resolution to Block DHS Rule Change on Illegals Seeking Green Cards

The Biden Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is proposing major changes to how illegal aliens are vetted for green cards, which would allow new applicants who receive many U.S. government benefits to continue on the path to citizenship. Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) has put forward a resolution to block the changes. According to an exclusive the Daily Caller published on Tuesday, “Sen. Marshall introduced the [Congressional Review Act]….on Nov. 14.”:

Republican Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall recently introduced a resolution that would block citizenship for illegal immigrants dependent on taxpayer-funded benefits.

The resolution was first obtained by the Daily Caller and focuses on a new DHS rule that would cut the number of benefits immigrants can use that would be held against them when applying for permanent residency in the United States.

The Daily Caller report continues, explaining the drastic change DHS wants to implement:

In 2019, the Trump administration defined any immigrant who had received one or more designated public benefits for more than 12 months within a 36-month period as a “public charge.

The Trump administration included food stamps, housing vouchers and Medicaid as benefits that would disqualify an immigrant from receiving a green card. Under DHS’s new rule, only the receipt of cash benefits or long-term institutional care could lead to a public charge finding.”

Included in the report was also Sen. Marshall’s statement:

“DHS’s proposed public charge rules continue our country down the dangerous path of incentivizing migrants to illegally cross our southern border. Granting citizenship to illegal aliens who would be dependent on federal benefits is a burden that American taxpayers and our national debt cannot afford,” Marshall said in a statement.

“The previous Administration made it clear to would-be law breakers that they would receive no support or citizenship from the American government,” Marshall added. “We need to get back to policies like this if our country is going to have any hope at stopping the invasion at our southern border that started when President Biden took office.”

RedState will keep an eye on developments in this story, since this has the potential to change in how our national sovereignty is protected.
