Pro-immigration groups are criticizing a new Trump administration plan to deny green cards to applicants who use public assistance, such as Medicaid and food stamps, as an attempt to limit immigration to wealthy individuals, thus negatively impacting low-income immigrants in particular.

In an interview with Time, I expressed my concern that this plan will give the Trump administration too much power in deciding who is likely to use public benefits, and pro-immigration groups across the nation have called the plan an effort to racially profile applicants and limit legal migration for people of color.
