All families, including immigrant families, deserve the right to have the healthiest and best quality of life that they can.
Despite the fact that immigrants generally benefit the economy, contributing $743 billion to the U.S. economy (2009-2011), the Trump administration is proposing changes to the Public Charge rule which could penalize immigrants (both legal and undocumented) for using public benefits.
What does this mean for immigrant children and their families?
For many, this may mean the difference between obtaining lawful permanent residence or a green card and having access to nutritious foods, medical care, and housing. Not having access to such public benefits only makes it more difficult for families to break the cycle of poverty.
Join us this #SaludTues on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, to learn more as we answer questions about the impact changes to public charge would have on immigrant families and all people.
