SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The city of San Francisco and neighboring Santa Clara County, California, have filed a lawsuit against the administration of President Donald Trump over his amendments to visa and residency rules.
"This illegal rule is an attempt to discredit immigrants," San Francisco Attorney General Denis Herrera said in a statement.
According to the lawsuit, the new rule will adversely affect the population of the United States, undermine the health care system in the country and bring significant financial damage. The applicants considered that the application of the new rule would lead to separation of family members from each other.
The authorities of San Francisco and Santa Clara County are suing the Citizenship and Immigration Services Authority and the Department of Homeland Security, accusing them of violating the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act
. Or who receive various kinds of social aid.
These new rules will halve the number of legal immigrants, and will affect hundreds of thousands of applicants for visas or residency cards.
