If becoming an American citizen wasn't already enough of an uphill battle, the process could soon get a lot harder. According to a new NBC report, the Trump administration is looking to introduce new rules that "would make it harder for legal immigrants to become citizens or get a green card” if they used federal benefits such as "Obamacare, children's health insurance or food stamps." It's a change that could affect more than 20 million immigrants and wouldn't need congressional approval.

For millions of other undocumented immigrants, there are the still-very-real threats of detention and deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement — even for those who have been in the country for years and pose no discernible public safety threat. A few weeks ago, the new head of Boston's ICE field office promised to focus on "the worst of the worst and public safety." But are they really keeping that promise?

Adam Reilly, in for Jim Braude, was joined by Adriana Lafaille, an attorney with the ACLU of Massachusetts, and immigration lawyer Matt Cameron, of Cameron Law offices, to discuss.
