"Cards are available and there are thirteen to fourteen million of them in the united states. For any number of reasons you can be the family member of an american citizen.

Especially in these hearings earrings with what they know in decisions. They made in one of the things. I would like to see out of the senate today that i didn't really see out of the house yesterday as some really incisive pointed questionings with let's grandstand in so the administration either starts to talk about decisions. Made and what. The situation on the ground is more just simply reveals that it was as haphazard inside as it looked on the outside and they don't really know what's going on but i think it's important for the american public to understand that i definitely important for congress understand that to put the proper amount of pressure on the administration and at least be able to talk about this in a real way.

How Much Are Americans Concerned With Afghanistan?
"I have been talking this hour about whether americans care about the americans their fellow citizens and their legal permanent residents green card holders abandoning afghanistan. Huge response very hard to get in the six. Am our phones. were full. brian woven wall. Who's an academic but a pretty smart guy and he's a neutral observer of talk radio wrote on twitter. Do we have any evidence at this concern over. The american in the l. p. art is widespread versus in pockets on the right like i've not had this topic come up in a single casual conversation with anyone and the numbers are too small for it to personally affect the math of swath of people like whether or cove it i believe.

By the way i like. Rose plot smart guy. But right. But i believe that one of the things that often happens with presidents when the american public thinks. They've mismanaged something. It's one of those issues that lead into everything you know. One of the things back on just really briefly as during the obama years There was an oil spill in the gulf and it took the administration. Then awhile to get a handle on it and do something about it. I always thought that that niche management bled into a lot of other things at the time you know how they mismanage isis. At least in the beginning lead into other things overtime.

The taliban kill list the target afghans who aided the us according to a report thursday and he admitted it may have happened when ass later at a white house briefing following the taliban okay so everybody in that white house knows this guy's out of his mind and i understand that the buck stops with him but when the buck stops with him it stopped with his entire administration.

Biden Responds to Kabul Airport Attack
"Short time ago. The president of the united states came out and spoke about the horrific bombing which happened today in kabul. We don't know of course the exact death toll at the moment. But it seems like they're already thirteen American servicemen killed and the president's speech. I thought was one of the more bizarre speeches. I've ever seen by a president and i'm saying this in the year. Twenty twenty one so i want to get quick reaction. I'm assuming everyone had the opportunity to review the president's ben. he's not since he is not capable. He is not competent. He came out. He looked like a mental patient. I mean he really did he he. He looked like he was barely awake. He stumbled his way through a bizarre seven or eight minutes speech. That contract itself about seven different times. He tried to rely very heavily on the. I'm empathetic joe. Routine the but the minute. That questions began all that went out the window. And he became combative joe He had nothing of merit to say. Yes no defense for his policies because this policy garbage and most of all if you're an american enemy watching the president of the united states on the same day that thirteen american soldiers are killed twelve marines. And you're watching. As the united states turns tail and runs leaving a thousand plus american citizens behind in kabul plus an unspecified number of thousands of american green card holders plus hundreds of thousands of people who will immediately be slaughtered by the taliban and as it turns out the united states government handed a list to the taliban of all the people we wanted to evacuate in the know precisely who to kill five just in kabul. They're americans all throughout the country. Weren't even talking. Yeah that's right if you're watching this as an enemy of the united states and then you watch this adult old feeble minded man walk out and barely make it through sentence. You're thinking you're like homer simpson with a hamburger right now. I'm bin laden said in ninety eight ninety nine after bombing kenya and tanzania the embassies there and after the mild response from a clinton administration said america's paper tiger. I don't know how if you're an enemy of the united states watching what has happened over the course of the last month. You can't look at the united states and say that is a nation. That can do anything i want to. This is a nation that is ripe for fall and this president is ready to let it

When the taliban flagrantly violated every principle every article of agreement why the united states has to maintain its deadline of. Obviously i i agree. And president biden says it's because president trump agreed to may one deadline but the taliban violated that with an attack on forward operating base chapman in march. We were not obliged to go along with this agreement they they committed themselves to a negotiated resolution. You know from our perspective. We don't understand why the united states is not blowing up the military equipment left behind.

Because now it's going to dramatically increase the number of green cards and an ad amnesty for illegals as jazz. Shaw writes over hot air.

It was one of the few things she brought overseas with her. When she emigrated here. And i picked up the instrument. And i i was just immediately captured by it and i think my by mom could see very quickly awhile. I think this is kind of a special thing going on because you know you have to tell kids to do lots of things but she never had to tell me to practice. It was always something that felt like joy and fun and certainly a lot of homework. Didn't feel like join funds. So i knew that i just wasn't excited about everything Violent really tapped into something within me. And so i became quite serious about the instrument over the years when i was nine years old.

"How does that fit into the larger picture of how the Trump administration is sort of limiting legal immigration right now, the Trump administration has stated pretty clearly that they don't particularly feel the need to be letting in a lot of family based immigrants lot of people who are, you know, relatively lower skilled or lower educated and who are going to be coming in permanently. The think that a lot of that is legislative in it is the congress has a lot more power to set legal immigration levels than it does say thorny over the enforcement of unauthorized immigration, but there still procedural things that the Trump administration can do. And it's been doing a lot of those through US immigration services. They have instituted new policies of if you're -application is rejected. And that means that you're in the US without status, they will automatically refer your case Thais, meaning you could be arrested deported. They have restricted the use of. Of kind of follow up questions for evidence saying, we'll just deny it instead between the kind of slowing down some of the process which has also resulted in total bottleneck for refugee applications. A lot of the reason that the Trump administration resettled about half of the refugees that it said it was going to resettle last year is because there's this massive security bottle met with all of the extra vetting that they've proposed the line between where is there a slowdown in the process and where you just trying to reduce overall numbers is not super clear, and a lot of advocates and lawyers are worried that they're using slowdowns as a way to kind of just get fewer people coming in. Is there a lot of support in the country for just limiting people who might need to come in here who immediately will need benefits who immediately will rely on the government for support. There are definitely a lot of people who are concerned about, you know, immigrants using welfare, but I don't see a lot of people say, we understand that people can't use public benefits for five years after they get a green card, and we understand that unauthorized immigrants can't get benefits at all, but we still think that it's important to adjudicate based on this. Right. A lot of tends to be based in the idea that people are coming here for the purpose of getting welfare, which if you know it's, I'm not saying that it's implausible that people could do that, but they'd have to be playing the long game where they weren't getting any public support for five years, middle, any number of other countries you could go to and sooner get benefits. Right. And it's also, I mean, the US doesn't just have a like, you know, right? Your application essay. Tell us why you wanna come to the US. These are people who are coming to live with their families, or, you know, in some cases seeking asylum or refugee status through an acknowledged international process, although those aren't people who would be affected by this rule. But you know, when. You're looking at the noncitizens who actually use public benefits. It's people who are, you know, coming for other purposes and humane not have perfect fits with the labor market. But you know, the US immigration system is isn't just set up to deal with the US labor market. It's set up to deal with the US as a society that values things like family ties and humanitarian obligations. And you know the result of that is going to be that not everyone is going to generate tons and tons of income and never need to go on public assistance. Other other sort of vestige immigration rules policies at the Trump administration might try to, you know, resurface bring back to life in the next few months. I know a lot about this and I've been, I have not seen some of the stuff coming, but this particular regulation has kind of been in their sights for a while. This was something that was actually initially teased in a draft executive order that just never got signed in terms of stuff. That's this big. It's not necessarily clear that anything this big is coming down the pipeline, but the really are so many small ways that they can kind of tighten the system that it's hard to know exactly what could be coming next..

"Tomorrow. I'm so glad I was going through this with, you know. Dan, you mentioned that this public charge concept goes back a ways. How far back eat goes back to eighteen eighty two, which for immigration laws super far bat giving. Yeah, that's that's the period where you know you could get excluded from the US if you were Chinese. So in addition to being Chinese or being a lunatic or a bunch of other terms that really it's their questions about how they would have been defined. The idea that view would deny entry to somebody who looked like they would be a public charge, became a matter of federal law there. And that's kind of during the Ellis Island era where a lot of people who are getting denied are literally coming up to the seaport. And then getting told, no, you cannot enter the US. You're gonna have to find your own way home or we'll just keep you on at the hospital on silent for while a different era. Yeah. So how is it defined back then? The idea of public charge it was. It was not defined in the law. So ended up kind of interpretation that at the time immigration and Naturalization Service officers used was you had to have twenty five dollars cash money on you. When you enter the country, if you didn't have twenty five dollars, they would not be confident that you could find a place to stay. You know, find friends pertain to wherever you were hoping to get a job or start a form set or whatever that I don't know what that looks like for inflation, but twenty five dollars for people who are often coming from relatively impoverished countries, not insubstantial amount of money at the time. And that meant that a lot of people who were getting rejected, we're getting rejected on those grounds between eighteen ninety and nineteen twenty had a majority of people who are getting turned away. We're getting turned away on the likelihood that they would be public charges. So when does that start to change? So it starts to change around the middle of the twentieth century when a lot of attitudes toward immigration kind of start to relax some. And then in the second half of the twentieth century, you have decisions with envy 'immigration bureaucracy that it's kind of unfair to put somebody on a certain threshold of like, if you can't meet this bar, then we're going to call you a public charge. It should be a totality of the circumstances test, and that's kind of the origins of where you now have this very complicated, multi factor test. The administration has proposed not it's supposed to be the way of an individual's situation looking at their, you know, earning potential or their history trying to predict whether they're going to be using benefits future those codified in nineteen Ninety-six in the law that's called ira- ira-, which did a lot to kind of restrict immigration and immigrants privileges in the United States. This administration has taken. Strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders. And so that codified that factors should be age, family status, education, financial status and health status. Were there any immediate attempts right after that then to use the sort of idea of the public charge as a way to limit legal immigration? Yeah. In the wake of the nineteen Ninety-six law, there started being reports that anyone who had used public benefits of any kind was getting their application denied for that reason, which is kind of the opposite of what you're trying to do with this five factor test. Right? So as a response to that, the Clinton administration put out this interim memo basically to the officers that were looking through locations saying when you're looking at whether someone is dependent on public benefits, it should be, are they getting cash benefits and are those half or more of their income? Like that's the bar for whether you're dependent is it literally has to be a majority of the money coming in that never got finalized as a regular. And they kind of fainted toward doing that, but they never really followed up and then through the Bush administration's, they just kept relying on that field guidance to set the bar for policy, which created the opportunity for Trump when they came in and said, well, we think this is entirely too lenient to immigrants. There are lots of public benefits that they could be using that aren't getting counted here. They had the opportunity to codify something that hadn't been codified before and change policy that way..

"Everyone knows how President Trump feels about illegal immigration, but he's not crazy about the legal kind either on Saturday, the Trump administration proposed new ways to limit who gets a green card in the United States. The limits are on immigrants who might become what's called a public charge. Someone who might end up to pendant on the government for assistance, stuff like food stamps or Medicaid public charge is a term you'll find in US immigration law. But the thing is it's never really been defined by congress, and that's where the Trump administration comes in. So the Trump administration is now proposing a statutory definition of public charge. That just happens to raise the raise the standards of stanchly for who can get into the US and makes it much more likely that immigrants with lower incomes or he used public benefits will be deemed public charges and have their green cards tonight. Dare Lynn reports on degration vox and she's been sifting through all this public charge business for a few days. Now it's an extremely complicated calculation. The regulation was about four hundred forty seven pages when it came out on Saturday night, what it ultimately comes down to a lot of discretion for the US citizenship and immigration services officers who are actually looking for immigrants application, they're supposed to take age into effect, health status, family status education skill level, and they're supposed to look at kind of the household assets and resources. Part of which is whether. An immigrant has used public benefits while in the US or whether they're likely to use them in the future. Do we have any idea what might get you rejected and what might not like where where the bar is what the clearest thing in terms of rejection is that if you have used public benefits substantially over the years before you apply that is a strongly weighted negative factor, it's super unlikely that if you've hit that level, you will be able to get a green card that whether or not you've used public benefits to that level is its own kind of calculus. They actually have this this three way formula that you can trip that bar. It counts what they call monetize -able benefits, which include food stamps, section, eight housing. Some other less common cash benefits and non monetize will benefits most most notably Medicaid. So using more than a certain threshold of the monetize will benefits or non monetize -able benefits for certain amount of time. Either of those can kind of trip the wire and get you considered likely to public in future. So does doesn't affect people who already have green cards. The short answer is yes, like with very, very few exceptions. This is a test for what's called admissibility. It's not something that counts for maintaining your status, and it's not something that you have to pass again after you've already been given a green card. So we're talking about people who are legally in the country with visa who are trying to get a green card. Right? And also people who are living outside the US and are trying to immigrate. You know, for example, a parent who's adult child is in the US and is trying to bring them over. They won't necessarily have the kind of record of using benefits, but they'll be subject to the other parts of the test, like whether they're healthy or if they're not healthy, they have private insurance. Are they old enough that you know they're going to be a concern for retirement, benefits, that kind of thing? Do we have any idea. How many people were talking about here, thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands millions, not millions. There are definitely going to be millions of immigrants who are subjected to this test in future. We don't know what the approval rate is going to be because we don't know how strictly this is going to be implemented. The Trump administration says that about a third of a million people each year will be evaluated based on this test. They're not making any predictions about how strict it's going to be by super, super, super strict interpretation. One that says that if you don't have the strongly positive factor of making a certain amount of like two fifty percent, two hundred fifty percent of the federal poverty guidelines. If no one below that threshold is being accepted, we're talking about a massive reshaping of legal immigration, specifically family based immigration to the US that would affect like two thirds of incoming Mexican immigrants about two-thirds of incoming Chinese immigrants..
