Fox News: Trump Wants 5 Year Welfare Ban for New Immigrants
VITTERT: "The White House had originally thought about doing this as an executive order, but now says they want to go to Congress. In their budget proposal a couple of weeks ago, the White House cited this study from the Center for Immigrant Studies, showing that 51 percent of households headed by an immigrant are using some form of public assistance, compared to 30 percent among nonimmigrant families. Essentially, the White House is saying their proposal would be a beefier version of a 1996 law enacted by President Clinton and then rolled back by the Obama and Bush Administration. That study is widely criticized for missing some of the nuances of immigrant families."
