San Francisco sues Donald Trump’s administration for limiting legal immigration

San Francisco

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration sued by the city of San Francisco and nearby Santa Clara County on Tuesday, trying to block a new rule that would drastically decrease legal immigration by revoking visas to poor migrants.

Some experts say the new rule would lead to a fifty percent reduction in legal immigration by denying visas and permanent residency to hundreds of thousands of people if they fail to meet high enough income standards or if they receive public assistance such as welfare, food stamps, public housing or Medicaid.

“This illegal rule is just another attempt to vilify immigrants,” Dennis Herrera, San Francisco City Attorney said.

U.S. President Donald Trump has made efforts to control both legal and illegal immigration, he has emphasized again as the campaign for the 2020 presidential election heats up.

The rule revealed on Monday and to take effect Oct. 15, expands the meaning of a public charge, allowing refusals to visa applicants who fail to meet income requirements.
