The $1/Day Standard & Other Problems with DHS ’s Public Charge Rule

ConclusionThe rule would not prevent legal immigrants from accessing welfare if the law allows them to obtain it, setting up a strange dichotomy between our rules at entry and our rules after entry. Under current law, the administration generally cannot prevent immigrants from using welfare in such cases, so no matter how the administration ends up reforming the public charge determinations, Congress should amend the law tolimit government benefits only to citizens. The private sector can —and already is—aiding immigrants when they fall on hard times or need help to get ahead, and the evidenceindicates that similar restrictions enacted in 1996 had no major effects on immigrant poverty.A strict no-welfare rule would further protect U.S. taxpayers, allow for higher levels of immigration, provide an incentive for immigrants to assimilate and naturalize, and avoid the necessity —as under this new rule—of turning bureaucrats into soothsayers. Table 2: Factors for Public Charge Determinations under DHS Rule FactorsIThe alien ’s age1between 18 and 61IIThe alien ’s health.2A diagnosis of a medical condition by a civil surgeon or panel physician;3Evidence of non-subsidized health insurance4Evidence of assets and resourcesIIIThe alien ’s family status5being a dependent or having dependent(s) makes it more or less likely that the alien will become a public charge.IVThe alien ’s education and skills.6a history of employment7a high...

Central neuropathic pain can be difficult to treat and, subsequently, cause a great amount of disability and distress to patients, which limits quality of life. Common etiologies include the following: stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, infection, vasculitis, and malignancy. This case is a description of an 18-yr-old male patient diagnosed with a grade IV diffuse glioma who experienced severe neuropathic pain refractory to first-line treatment options including the following: gabapentinoids, tricyclic antidepressants, and selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors. The patient remained on high-...

Conclusion In the treatment of lateral epicondylitis, KT alone was found to be as effective as steroid injection alone. However, co-administration of steroid injection and KT is more effective compared with each treatment alone.

CONCLUSIONS: In a large community-based sample in middle to early old age, bipolar disorder and depression were associated with lower visuospatial memory performance, in part potentially due to psychotropic medication use. Mood disorders and their treatments will have increasing importance for population cognitive health as the proportion of older adults continues to grow.

AbstractSummaryEffects of anti-osteoporosis medications such as anti-resorptive and anabolic agents on healing of osteoporotic spinal fracture were retrospectively investigated. The use of anabolic agent significantly enhanced fracture healing, reduced progressive collapse, and presented good pain relief. These findings suggest that proper selection of medication could improve initial management of acute osteoporotic spinal fractures (OSFs).IntroductionAlthough anti-osteoporosis medications have beneficial effects on prevention of osteoporotic spinal fractures (OSFs), few studies have compared effects of medications on fra...
