Feds warn immigrants about welfare use
Washington Times, Jun 14, 2019

Officers handling legal immigration cases will now warn people that they are under an obligation to support themselves rather than end up on the public dole, under a new policy implemented Friday by Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The warning will be issued both to the immigrant and their sponsor, who under the law has signed an agreement not to let the immigrant become a public charge.

In the new warning, UCSIS officers will “remind” sponsors that they can — and now will — be asked to pay back “every dollar” of welfare that the immigrants take.

“The president has made it a priority to ensure that every individual who seeks to come to the United States is self-sufficient, temporarily or permanently,” Mr. Cuccinelli said in a memo to agency employees.

It’s the first major public move by Mr. Cuccinelli, who became acting director last week.

"Remember this day forever." -- President Donald J. Trump, January 6, 2021

It's a good baby step. 

Wait - they can't legally work here.  Mixed messages?
