Skip to comments.Line of people signing up for Medicaid and food stamps VANISHES as Donald Trump's administration brings in crackdown on green cards for people claiming benefits
Posted on 02/24/2020 6:34:23 PM PST by RightGeek
Pastor Antonio Velasquez says that before the Trump administration announced a crackdown on immigrants using government social services, people lined up before sunrise outside a state office in a largely Latino Phoenix neighborhood to sign up for food stamps and Medicaid.
'You had to arrive at 3 in the morning, and it might take you until the end of the day,' he said, pointing behind the office in the Maryvale neighborhood to show how long the lines got.
But no one lined up one recent weekday morning, and there were just a handful of people inside.
With new rules taking effect Monday that disqualify more people from green cards if they use government benefits, droves of immigrants, including citizens and legal residents, have dropped social services they or their children may be entitled to out of fear they will be kicked out of the U.S., said Velazquez and other advocates.
'This will bring more poverty, more homeless, more illness,' said Velasquez, a well-known leader among Spanish-speaking immigrants in the Phoenix area.

Yet another reason to vote Trump 2020. MAGA.
CYA. Wouldn’t wanna BYA.
Sorry British press, but the Supreme Court just ruled their NOT ENTITLED to these benefits.
tax all remittances, implement eVerify and watch em self-deport.... get em all out!
Not tired of winning yet.
They can go back where they came from instead of coming here to mooch off the freebies they get handed to them.
There, their, they’re...and there you have it.
They work cheap, send all their money back to their 3rd world stinkhole, and we get to pay to feed them while they drive down wages. What a bargain! what could go wrong?
I talked to a guy who used to make a good living as an electrician. Illegals who are unlicensed go into a housing development, live in the house while they do the electric and then move to the next one. He can’t bid a job that cheap and no one can make a living as long as that is what they are competing against. This is why you can’t make a living hanging drywall either.
So the Dems who keep saying they want everyone to make a living wage destroy living wages with illegals and want us to pay them welfare on top of it.
The comments at the end of the article are interesting.
The dems are not going to know what hit them come Nov.
“’This will bring more poverty, more homeless, more illness,’ said Velasquez, a well-known leader among Spanish-speaking immigrants in the Phoenix area.”
Well, Antonio, why not counsel these people to go back to their native lands and suck off their own government agencies and the taxpayers of their countries who are paying for it? That way these ingrates don’t have to complain about the U.S. and they can receive the treatment they so much deserve in their own countries.
Ten percent tax on remittances the first year, twenty percent in second year, thirty percent the third year.......
Start at 3am and maybe get signed up for welfare by the end of the day?
Get an effin job...
Winning!!! Now, round up people previously receiving aid and deport them.
How many work under the table for cash while collecting benefits?
Does hiera work?
AND they can't vote democrat anymore when they self-deport.
This will devastate democrat voting turnout because we all know, despite the 'rats denying it, illegals DO vote in many jurisdictions.
Works for me!
