The Trump administration is making it harder for poor legal immigrants to enter and stay in the U.S.
The administration released a new, 837-page regulation this week that could dramatically cut the number of legal immigrants in the country.
So what exactly does the regulation say?
The regulation takes an existing law, the “public charge” rule, and expands the definition. The existing rule prevents any immigrant who is “likely at any time to become a public charge” from entering the U.S., renewing a visa, or obtaining a green card.
