On January 25th, 2020, the United States Supreme Court upheld the Trump Administration’s “public charge” rule, allowing it to take effect. The rule, designed to protect American taxpayers from having to finance the economic needs of millions of immigrants flooding into the United States made it more difficult for them to acquire a green card and permanent residency should they use, or were found likely to use, taxpayer financed benefits such as food stamps, public housing and Medicaid, and thus becoming a “public charge”.
And why not have such a rule? As far back as our colonial period, laws were enacted to prohibit the immigration of individuals who might become a public charge. One such law forbid ”… the admission of indigent migrants. This law was followed in the 18th century by other laws prohibiting the landing of “Sick, Lame, or Otherwise Infirm Persons,” and calling for bonds that were forfeited if immigrants of questionable means became public charges.” See: Public Charge Provisions of Immigration Law: A Brief Historical Background
But now, instead of relying upon CHARITABLE GIVING, to assist foreign nationals who have flooded across our border, the Biden Administration has decided to rescind the “public charge” rule and use the force of federal taxation to directly tax American citizens, confiscate the property they have earned by the sweat of their labor, and redistribute that property for the economic needs of millions of foreign nationals who have flooded across the borders of the United States.
In regard to the use of government power in this manner, one of our forefathers summarized such an act as tyranny!
“Under a just and equal Government, every individual is entitled to protection in the enjoyment of the whole product of his labor, except such portion of it as is necessary to enable Government to protect the rest; this is given only in consideration of the protection offered. In every bounty, exclusive right, or monopoly, Government violates the stipulation on her part; for, by such a regulation, the product of one man’s labor is transferred to the use and enjoyment of another. The exercise of such a right on the part of Government can be justified on no other principle, than that the whole product of the labor or every individual is the real property of Government, and may be distributed among the several parts of the community by government discretion; such a supposition would directly involve the idea, that every individual in the community is merely a slave and bondsman to Government, who, although he may labor, is not to expect protection in the product of his labor. An authority given to any Government to exercise such a principle, would lead to a complete system of tyranny.” See Representative Giles, speaking before Congress February 3rd, 1792
As reported on March 11th, 2021, the Biden administration takes final step to end Trump-era ‘public charge’ rule
“Today, DHS closed the book on the public charge rule and is doing the same with respect to a proposed rule regarding the affidavit of support that would have placed undue burdens on American families wishing to sponsor individuals lawfully immigrating to the U.S.,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement.”
Keep in mind as pointed out above, as far back as the 18th century there were laws on the books calling for bonds that were forfeited by sponsors “if immigrants of questionable means became public charges.”
But now, under the Biden Socialist Revolutionary Administration, the United States can be flooded with the poverty stricken populations of other countries, and American taxpaying citizens made to surrender the property they have earned by the sweat of their labor to finance the economic needs of those flooding across our border.
There is no better way to weaken, destroy and bring to its knees a prosperous and freedom loving country than by flooding it with the poverty stricken, poorly educated, low skilled, diseased, disabled and criminal populations of other countries.
