This is a big step. We have long tired of all the free-loaders. Look at what they have done in Europe, demanding services.

They still require a financial sponsor but they dont enforce it.
It’s an act of love, spending the tax money American producers can’t spend.
They DREAM about spending other people’s money,
Bet this will make Omarosa and her friends on Big Brother really cry.
I had a mexican neighbor who did this. Free Edison electricity, free internet, 2 cars, and welfare checks. It was only last year that the Sheriff kicked them out of the building bec lo and behld, they were not paying rent. I know the kids were Americans but the couple werent.
Start with the moochers and the criminals.
Yup. That was what was required for my mother in law back in ‘62.

If he would cut off all government freebies from them, they’d self deport in a minute.
