New green card issuance rules come into US

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The US authorities will be able to start acting on Monday under the new rules for issuing permits for permanent residence in the United States (green cards), the press service of the White House said in a statement.

The new rules provide for stricter requirements for applicants who rely on state benefits.

“The Ministry of Internal Security will be able to start implementing new legislation on Monday. <…> (According to it. – ed.) New members of our society should be financially independent,” the White House said in a statement.
