3 by 3: Students Respond to Trump’s New Rule About Green Cards

Iveth Vanegas, Reporter

On August 12th, Trump administration passed a new rule that could deny green cards to immigrants receiving public assistance. It makes it harder for low-income immigrants to come and stay in the U.S. 400,00 people are expected to be affected by this new rule. I asked 3 raiders their thoughts on whether they agreed with this rule or disagreed.


“I don’t agree with it, because immigrants deserve to be free too and have the right.” Alejandra Orrego, 11.


“I think that it depends on the person. If they have a criminal history or record, they should work here and have a job for a couple of years before they apply for a green card. It should depend what kind of wage and education they have. They should have a green card if they have a good wage and degree.” Tyler Walker, 12.


“I believe everyone deserves a chance to be a citizen in the U.S. with a green card, and if they are with good standing with the law, they should have the chance to be free because people come from different situations.” Reeba George, 12.
