President Donald Trump talks to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House, Friday, Aug. 9, 2019, in Washington.

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration announced Monday it is moving forward with one of its most aggressive steps yet to restrict legal immigration: Denying green cards to many migrants who use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers or other forms of public assistance.

Federal law already requires those seeking to become permanent residents or gain legal status to prove they will not be a burden to the U.S. - a "public charge," in government speak -but the new rules detail a broader range of programs that could disqualify them.
