    President Donald Trump is considering an executive order that would target some immigrants for deportation if they become dependent on government assistance.

    The Associated Press has obtained a copy of the draft order that calls for the identification and removal "as expeditiously as possible" of any legal immigrant who relies on certain kinds of public welfare benefits.


    The order, if signed, would also focus the government's efforts on blocking immigrants who are likely to become reliant on government benefits.

    The White House did not immediately comment.


    Immigrants already must prove financial independence before they are allowed into the United States. The draft order signals the administration is considering not only cracking down on immigrants in the U.S. illegally, but also some living in country legally.

    If this is indeed fact and not Fake-News, this boy don't (f) around do he.

    I'd be happy if they just get the illegal aliens off the welfare roles and seize their driver's licenses.

    This is great, if accurate. I wonder if President Trump and his people follow GTPI, because this is what many here have been saying. Probably not; it is just common sense. President Trump will go down in history for, among many other great things, being the "common sense" President.

    Maybe later he can address the multi-generational welfare suckers.

    If true, marvelous. Ram it through and enforce it.

    When my daughter went to school in Montreal she had to be "approved" by the Quebec government. Part of the process was that I had to guarantee her finacial well being. That process took about 6 months.

    I'm sure Trump has his unofficial "leaker" to release these trial balloons.

    This is not uncommon in many countries.

    We will have to wait to judge its effectiveness. Using a simple decibel meter, we should be able to measure the lefts crying, screaming and carrying on. If it reads over 110 dbs it will proove the order to be quite affective.

    I wish this was true, but I see no evidence that Trump is even considering it.

    Anybody can write something and call it a copy of a draft order which nobody will sign, let alone read.

    I hope it turns out to be true; let's see this so-called "copy of a draft order" which nobody will sign or even comment upon. There might be one ending contrails next.

    Sounds fake to me. AP hasn't known crap about what Trump was going to do, or the results he was going to get each step of the way, ever since he said he was running for office.

    This would likely be a next step, going after illegals.

    Otherwise I would bet fake news was created by the alt-left to make it seem Trump was going after legal immigrants.

    Here is the only comment so far to the posted article, and it appears they are achieving their goal:

    So now King Donald the First starts his War on the Poor, starting with immigrants in this country legally!

    I can see it now: a legal immigrant loses his/her job and can't find new work because employers now hire "Americans First". She might find a part-time or minimum wage job with Walmart or McDonald's, and turns to welfare, food stamps, or Medicaid to help support her family. Der Donald steps in: "You're deported!"

    What an underhanded, roundabout way to get rid of "unwanted" immigrants! What's next: "work camps" for American citizens receiving government assistance?

    He's apparently thinking between those early morning twitter sessions. So far, the more I hear, the more I like.
