Denying green cards to many migrants who use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers or other forms of public assistance

I still can't comprehend why we give non-citizens this extreme amount of welfare. If we want to have a welfare state, then fine let's have a welfare state. In order to maintain the welfare state, we have to close the borders and strictly only allow self sufficient immigrants. That seems like what this policy is aiming for. Hell, even Bernie Sanders agrees with no open borders if you have a welfare state.

In general, people in welfare countries are often open to their tax dollars helping people within their country, often because they share culture, history or heritage. Most people should be opposed to their tax dollars going to support random economic migrants who either enter the country illegally, exploit immigration systems or who abuse asylum systems
