Trump Administration To Favor Self-Sufficient Immigrants Proficient In English
Under a new regulation set to be enforced by the Trump administration, self-sufficient immigrants who are proficient in English will be favored for green cards to permanently remain in the USA over those who are non-English speakers and reliant on welfare.
Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) Director Ken Cuccinelli stated that the Trump administration will establish what is known as the “Public Charge” rule, and among the positive factors that will help secure a green card for an immigrant is the ability to speak English.
“DHS will consider whether the alien is proficient in English or proficient in other languages in addition to English as part of the public charge inadmissibility determination,” the regulation states. “People who spoke a language other than English at home were less likely to be employed, and less likely to find full-time work when employed.”
