U.S. Citizenship and Green Cards Denied to Legal Immigrants who Legally Received Government Benefits?

I was quoted in this news article this week, about a story concerning the administration's new way of looking at the immigration law's public charge language.

Generally, no person may immigrate (other than perhaps, refugees) to the United States unless they can prove they will not become a public charge, meaning, they won't need the government to support them.

The administration recently announced that they will be looking at the legal receipt of government benefits as evidence that a person is, in fact, a public charge. The article discusses this in greater detail.
