Trump Administration really going out of their way to prove they are racist, don’t you think?

The Trump administration is expected to issue a proposal in coming weeks that would make it harder for legal immigrants to become citizens or get green cards if they have ever used a range of popular public welfare programs, including Obamacare, four sources with knowledge of the plan told NBC News.
The move, which would not need congressional approval, is part of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller’s plan to limit the number of migrants who obtain legal status in the U.S. each year.
Details of the rulemaking proposal are still being finalized, but based on a recent draft seen last week and described to NBC News, immigrants living legally in the U.S. who have ever used or whose household members have ever used Obamacare, children’s health insurance, food stamps and other benefits could be hindered from obtaining legal status in the U.S.
So the undocumented immigrants are called criminals for not legally attempting to become citizens, and now the immigrants going through the proper channels to become legal, are going to be thwarted as well.
You know if I was a cynic I might think that the Trump Administration just does not want anybody coming here who are not rich white people.
In my opinion, this is all about white nationalism and the fear that more brown-skinned immigrants entering the country will soon knock Caucasians off as the ethnic majority in America.
But I have to say that if Republicans are concerned that immigrants with new citizenship papers are more likely to vote for Democrats, this is exactly how you make that a certainty.
