Trump’s rule creating a wealth test for immigrants is now in effect
An uninsured woman takes her children in for a medical check-up at a low-cost clinic run by the Rocky Mountain Youth Clinics on July 28, 2009, in Aurora, Colorado. | John Moore/Getty Images It’s already had a chilling effect on immigrants dropping out of public benefits programs. A rule that creates new barriers to low-income immigrants seeking to enter the US went into effect on Monday, bringing to fruition the kind of vast restrictions on legal immigration that President Donald Trump has long sought. The so-called “public charge”rule, published in August by the Department of Homeland Security, establishesa test to determine whether an immigrant applying to enter the US, extend their visa, or convert their temporary immigration status into a green card is likely to end up relying on public benefits in the future. Immigration officials will now have more leeway to turn away those who are “likely to be a public charge” based on an evaluation of 20 factors, ranging from the use of certain public benefits programs — including food stamps, Section 8 housing vouchers, and Medicaid — to English language proficiency. The rule affects immigrants applying for green cards nationwide and at consulates abroad, as well as those applying for temporary visas overseas such as tourists, business travelers, students, and skilled workers. It’s not clear exactly how many people could be affected by the rule. But Julia Gelatt, a senior policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan think tank, told Vox that 69 percent of the roughly 5.5 million people who were granted green cards over the past five years would have had at least one negative factor under the rule — which officials could have used as justification to reject their applications for immigration benefits. For about four months, federal judges prevented the rule from being implemented while lawsuits challenging it made their way through the courts. Opponents of the rule, including the state of New York and immigrant advocacy groups, had argued that the rule flouts the narrow definition of what it means to be a “public charge” under federal immigration law. But rather than waiting for those courts to issue final rulings, President Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court in January to intervene — a once-rare occurrence that has become standard practice under this administration — and to allow the rule to go into effect. The US Supreme Court’s conservative majority gave it the green light later that month without explaining their reasoning. Trump has justified the rule as a means of ensuring that immigrants are “financially self-sufficient” and has argued it will “protect benefits for American citizens.” “I am tired of seeing our taxpayer paying for people to come into the country and immediately go onto welfare and various other things,” Trump said when announcing the rule. “So I think we’re doing it right.” The rule, which has been anticipated for more than a year, has had a chilling effect already: Noncitizens have been needlessly dropping their public benefits fear that they will face immigration consequences. It’s difficult to quantify just how many immigrants have unenrolled already, but one survey suggested that about one in seven had done so as of 2018. Many immigrants aren’t eligible for public benefits unless they have green cards or certain humanitarian protections — and not all public benefits are available to noncitizens. In the majority of cases, the best advice for immigrants is to keep using the programs to which they’re entitled because they won’t be penalized for doing so under the rule, Doug Rand,a former White House official who worked on immigration policy in the Obama administration, said. But for many immigrants who have already decided to drop their benefits, that advice is coming too late. Even before the rule went into effect, the publicity surrounding it accomplished what the Trump administration wanted: Immigrants were being driven away from public benefits. By the time the rule went into effect on Monday, it had, in that sense, already succeeded. “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on your own two feet” The rule fits in with one of the broader ideas guiding Trump’s immigration policy: that immigrants take advantage of public assistance without offering the US anything in return.It enacts the philosophy that acting US Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli once described, amending Emma Lazarus’s famous poem on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet.” It also makes getting into the US much harder for immigrants sponsored by family members, the phenomenon Trump has excoriated as “chain migration.” The rule is only one of several policies the Trump administration has pursued to dramatically shift which immigrants are legally able to come to the United States. Under Trump, the legal immigration system increasingly rewards skills and wealth over family ties to the US, while shutting out a growing number of people from low-income backgrounds. Heeding calls from 31 states to end refugee admissions from Syria, Trump has slashed the total number of refugees the US accepts annually to just 18,000 this year, the fewest in history and down from a cap of 110,000 just two years ago. He’s placed restrictions on the citizens of many Muslim-majority and African countries. His travel ban prevents citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Venezuela, and North Korea from obtaining any kind of visa allowing them to enter the US. He recently added new restrictions on immigrants from six additional countries: Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania. Critics have called it an “African ban” since about four in five of those affected are from African nations — places Trump has reportedly previously derided as “shithole countries.” And Trump is also cracking down on foreigners giving birth to children in the US, who automatically become American citizens, particularly if they can’t prove they can pay for their medical treatment. With the public charge regulation, Trump is painting immigrants as abusing public benefits. But they are actually “less likely to consume welfare benefits and, when they do, they generally consume a lower dollar value of benefits than native-born Americans,” according to the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank. In 2016, the average per capita value of public benefits consumed by immigrants was $3,718, as compared to $6,081 among native-born Americans. Noncitizenswere slightly more likely to get cash assistance, SNAP benefits and Medicaid, but far less likely to useMedicare and Social Security. “The rhetoric around the use of public benefits programs is largely smoke and mirrors,” Erin Quinn​, a senior staff attorney at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, told Vox. “It’s feeding a rhetoric that immigrants are draining our public services when in fact these immigrants don’t even have access to those services and also galvanizing fear in immigrant communities.” The “public charge” rule, explained The US has been able to reject prospective immigrants who are likely to become a “public charge” — dependent on the government for support — since 1882, but since World War II, few immigrants were turned away using that criteria. In 1999, the Clinton administration issued guidance that said only cash benefits, which very few immigrants use, would be considered in making the determination. The Trump administration is defining “public charge” much more broadly, giving immigration officials at US Citizenship and Immigration Services and US Customs and Border Protection a laundry list of factors to consider. And the new rule allows individual immigration officials to implement thiscomplicated, 217-page regulation as they see fit. The rule gives individual, low-level officials much more vetting power than they have had previously, and injects a lot of uncertainty into the green card process. Itcould have a significant impact on who is allowed toenter and remain in the US as a lawful permanent resident. Lower court rulings had argued that the public charge rule conflicts with how federal immigration law has been interpreted for two decades and appears to ignore the tens of thousands of public comments that opposed it. “Defendants do not articulate why they are changing the public charge definition, why this new definition is needed now, or why the definition set forth in the Rule—which has absolutely no support in the history of U.S. immigration law—is reasonable,” US District Judge George Daniels wrote in his opinion in October. But the final version of the regulation is much less stringent than earlier versions that were leaked to the public (including one to Vox). Those drafts would have allowed immigration officials to consider immigrants’ use of a long list of federal public benefits programs, including CHIP and Head Start, the federal early childhood education program. It also would have looked at any programs used by an immigrant’s household — meaning that immigrants could be penalized if they sought benefits for their children instead of themselves. Early reports raised the alarm about how the rule targeted immigrants on public benefits. The Trump administration got hundreds of thousands of comments about it. And immigrants started dropping out of those programs, worried that their chances of getting a green card or citizenship would be affected. An Urban Institute study found that, based on a survey of about 2,000 adults in immigrant families, 13.7 percent of them said that they or one of their relatives chose not to use non-cash benefits programs in 2018 as a result of reports about the rule. Eventually, the rule could lead up to 4.7 million people to withdraw from Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) alone, according to a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation. The Los Angeles Times reported that some immigrants with children enrolled in special education programs withdrew them from school and that refugees and asylum seekers dropped out of food assistance programs. Quinn said that her organization has found that immigrants are also avoiding applying for asylum and citizenship, even though the final version of the rule does not affect either process. “The rule has falsely created an impression that undocumented immigrants and temporary residents are gobbling up public benefits, which they’re not because they’re generally not eligible,” Rand said. “And it has scared those who are eligible, who are primarily permanent residents with green cards, legal immigrants, into unenrolling from programs they are perfectly eligible to take advantage of under the law.” Damage from the rule has already been done Some federal programs are eligible to all immigrants regardless of status, including the National School Lunch Program; the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); and Head Start. Some immigrants can also become eligible for Social Security benefits and Medicare in old age. But “means-tested welfare programs” — federal public benefits for those in poverty including Medicaid, CHIP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) — are primarily reserved for naturalized and US-born citizens, green card holders, refugees, and asylees. Unauthorized immigrants and most people with temporary immigration status, such as employment-based visas, are ineligible, and green card holders have to wait for five years before becoming eligible (although some states give them access earlier). All of this means that relatively few immigrants would end up being penalized, under the final version of the rule, for using public assistance. But the rule has already been effective in dissuading many immigrants from continuing to access the public benefits they need. Reporting about the potentially drastic effects of the rule, and advocacy groups’ decision to condemn it, all helped spread the word. Most immigrants will face no consequences for keeping their benefits, Rand said. But advocates and attorneys are reluctant to make any such blanket statements for fear of being responsible for giving bad advice, especially now that the rule has gone into effect. “Unfortunately, I think a lot of the damage has already been done through the rhetoric and the media cycles around the various proposals,” Quinn said. DHS’s cost-benefit analysis of the rule is premised on the fact that many people will unnecessarily unenroll from public benefits or refrain from enrolling from such programs in the future, Rand said. The economic gains the department cited in its analysisare almost entirely attributable to the anticipated reduction in “transfer payments,” or government payments to public benefits recipients. “In other words, the ‘chilling effect’ isn’t a second-order consequence of the rule; according to DHS, it’s practically the only thing that makes the rule economically beneficial,” Rand said.

How researchers are using Reddit and Twitter data to forecast suicide rates
Social media sites offer unprecedented levels of real-time data that could be used for mental health research. | Thomas Trutschel/Photothek/Getty Images Researchers at the CDC and Georgia Tech are using a whole lot of data, including social media, to forecast the suicide rate, a statistic that can lag by up to two years. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is using data from platforms like Reddit and Twitter to power artificial intelligence that can forecast suicide rates. The agency is doing this because its current suicide statistics are delayed by up to two years, which means that officials are forming policy and allocating mental health resources throughout the country without the most up-to-date numbers. The CDC’s suicide rate statistics are calculated based on cause-of-death reports from throughout the 50 states, which are compiled into a national database. That information is the most accurate reporting we have, but it can take a long time to produce. “If we want to do any kind of policy change, intervention, budget allocation, we need to know the real picture of what is going on in the world in terms of people’s mental health experiences,” Munmun de Choudhury, a professor at Georgia Tech’s School of Interactive Computing who is working with the CDC, told Recode. Researchers believe that combining other types of real-time data, including content from social media platforms like Reddit and Twitter, and health-related data we already have, like data from suicide helplines, could reduce that lag time. The idea is that, together, these sources of data can send “signals” about what the suicide rate is — and what it will be — which artificial intelligence can be trained to uncover. This effort is just another way that AI is being used to study how we talk online and to power new approaches to public health. Similar technology is already being used to catch illegal sales of opioids online and has even helped track the initial outbreak of the novel coronavirus. Approaches like these could help save some lives, but they’re a reminder that information that’s publicly shared on the internet is increasingly driving health policy, which could help make decisions that have a real impact on our lives, including in suicide prevention efforts. Combining health data with information gleaned from Twitter and Reddit can make for better predictions Without estimates of the real-time suicide rate, it can be incredibly difficult for public health officials to precisely direct suicide and self-harm prevention efforts where they’re needed. A CDC spokesperson said that those numbers can be delayed by one to two years, which makes it harder to properly respond to the increasing suicide rate, which we know has surged 40 percent in less than two decades. “When you have data that is dated, and you know that the rates of suicide are increasing but you don’t know by how much, it can severely impact the kinds of interventions organizations like the CDC can do, [such as] maybe improving access to resources [and] allocating resources throughout the country,” de Choudhury told Recode. She explains that keywords related to suicide help whittle down publicly available data. A summary of research Recode obtained through a public records request noted that this information could be drawn from “news reports, Twitter, Reddit, Google Trends, [and] YouTube Search trends.” That data is then combined with other health data the CDC has, including data provided from crisis text and call lines. Based on all these sources of data and previous suicide rates created through the CDC’s National Vital Statistics program, researchers can train an algorithm to forecast what the actual rate is. “You train a machine-learning model using data and then you apply that model on an unseen data set to see how well it is doing,” de Choudhury told Recode. “The project was: How can we intelligently harness signals from these different real-time sources in order to offset this one- to two-year lag?” She says the first phase of the research had “remarkable success” and that the algorithm had an error rate of less than 1 percent. That number represents an average of the difference between their predicted suicide rate and the actual rate, as reported by the CDC historically. “What our method does is give estimates at a weekly granularity over all of 2019,” de Choudhury says. “What we are saying is that we can now estimate these rates of suicide up to a year in advance of when death records become available.” That means that they could use data collected until December 2019 to predict the suicide rate for every week of 2021. A CDC spokesperson told Recode a research paper is expected later this year but that the work is still in an early stage. AI is increasingly being used to identify suicide risk De Choudhury says her work with the CDC is just one way AI can drive mental health efforts. Another idea: using machine learning to study patients’ social media (with their consent) to help determine when a person’s mental health symptoms get worse. “By the time people do get connected with care, to receive adequate health [care], that is pretty late in their trajectory of the illness, which makes appropriate treatment that can be tailored to the person specifically really, really challenging,” she explains. The CDC and de Choudhury are not alone in looking at the role of AI in identifying people who are at risk of suicide. Researchers at Vanderbilt University have used machine-learning algorithms, trained on a wide range of data, to predict the likelihood that someone might take their own life. And researchers in Berkeley, California, working with the Department of Energy and the Department of Veterans Affairs, are using deep learning to identify and score a patient’s risk of suicide. Meanwhile, the Crisis Text Line, a text messaging service that allows people who are struggling with their mental health to text a counselor, is using such AI to figure out which people who reach out on its service are more likely to engage in self-harm or to attempt suicide. (You can check out some of the data the service collects here.) That approach is not unlike the AI used by Facebook, which analyzes content on its site to make an informed guess about whether someone is at risk of “imminent harm,” though that strategy has also raised questions about data privacy and transparency. (If you’re curious, you can read more about how that works on Facebook here.) As with most tech innovations, there are trade-offs to using people’s online communication — even personal comments about mental health — to help power AI. It’s worth asking whether we’re comfortable with corporate social platforms being able to make these types of judgments about us, especially on sensitive matters like suicide. At the same time, this tech could also help save people’s lives and get them resources that they need, assuming it works and is used responsibly. And, as the CDC’s research demonstrates, that information can do more than just help individual people. It can help shape how we address the suicide epidemic as a whole.
