Supreme Court Allows Trump Plan to Deny Permanent Status to Immigrants on Welfare

According to the Washington Examiner:

The Supreme Court cleared the way for the Trump administration to implement new rules that would make it easier to deny legal permanent residency to immigrants deemed likely to use public benefits.

The court on Monday voted 5-4 to remove a nationwide injunction imposed by a judge in New York. The vote was split along ideological lines, with the five conservative justices in the majority.

The policy, unveiled in August, considers immigrants in the country legally who receive food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid, to be ineligible for green cards and a path to American citizenship.

    He noted the judge-shopping for nationwide injunctions, and said (paraphrasing) that if this is going to be the new normal, then nothing will ever get done.
