ALLOWED TO VISIT. IN WASHINGTON NICOLE KILIAN “KCAL 9 NEWS.” JEFF: CALIFORNIA AND SEVERAL STATES ARE FIGHTING THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S NEW IMMIGRATION RULE. THE RULE BLOCKS MANY PEOPLE FROM GETTING GREEN CARDS IF THEY USE MEDICAID FOOD STAMPS OR PUBLIC ASSISTANCE. ATTORNEY GENERAL XAVIER BECERRA FILED A FEDERAL LAWSUIT TO STOP THESE NEW RESTRICTIONS. GOVERNOR NEWSOM SHOWED HIS SUPPORT AT TODAY’S NEWS CONFERENCE. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN TOUGH ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION BUT THIS NEW RULE IS CONSIDERED AN AGGRESSIVE MOVE TO CUT DOWN ON LEGAL IMMIGRATION. THIS TRUMP RULE WEAPONIZES NUTRITION, HEALTH CARE AND HOUSING. AT THE END OF THE DAY IT’S THE MOTHER DECIDING WHETHER OR NOT TO GET BENEFITS FOR THEIR CHILDREN FOR THEIR CHILD OR BEING SEPARATED FROM THAT CHILD AND THE FEAR OF BEING DEPORTED. JEFF: CALIFORNIA IS NOT ALONE. MORE THAN A DOZEN STATES HAVE FILED SIMILAR LAWSUITS THIS WEEK
