The Trump administration is continuing its destructive efforts to vilify immigrants. The administration has proposed a new “Public Charge” regulation that would block immigrant families from having a permanent, secure future in the United States. Under the new rule, immigrants who legally access health care, safe housing, and healthy food programs could be denied admission to the country or refused a green card. The proposed rule also makes clear that earning low wages, having children, or dealing with a medical condition could be held against immigrants seeking a permanent future here.
We need to move swiftly. Take a few minutes now to post a public comment decrying this inhumane attack on the health and well-being of countless families, communities, and children.Just click here.
