Trump administration imposes yet another new immigration rule

Migrant families who seek asylum in Arizona or any other state can now be detained indefinitely while their cases are being considered. This is according to a new rule unveiled by the Trump administration on Aug. 21. In 1997, a settlement was reached that allows migrant children to be kept in custody for up to 20 days. It is widely believed that the rule applies to adults who come to the country with their children.

Immigration advocates concerned about "public charge" changes

For many Arizona residents, the Trump administration's policies and rhetoric around immigration have raised serious concerns, especially for those who are immigrants themselves or who have loved ones who are. While many of these policies have been justified by rhetoric focusing on undocumented immigration, another new regulation is taking aim at people who entered and remained in the country legally. The changes to the "public charge" regulation could make it more difficult for visa and green card applicants to win approval if they have less education or lower incomes.
