TELL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TO OPPOSE THE PUBLIC CHARGE RULE

The Department of Homeland Security recently proposed a “public charge” rule.  The rule would make it harder for immigrants to stay in the US if they have accepted food stamps, received housing assistance or enrolled in Medicaid or Medicare Part D. 

 

The policy assumes you can accurately divide people into permanent classes of contributors and non-contributors, which is inconsistent with the history of immigration in our country.  It would harm millions by undermining access to essential health, nutrition and housing services for immigrants and their families.  It would also put the wealthy ahead of families who have waited years for a green card.
