This rule would effectively force immigrant families to choose between pursuing citizenship and seeking health coverage and care. This cannot stand and we will fight back.

My receipt of SSI was a major part of my path to self-sufficiency and the career I have now. Building fear around benefits creates public health & workforce crisis. Instead of limiting paths to citizenship & public benefits, we should be improving both.

Under these rules, immigrants living with HIV and their families would have to go without health programs like Medicaid and Medicare Part D, or risk getting denied a green card. Going without insurance means going without treatment.

Cruelty is the point. Rules like this feed dangerous, ill-informed, xenophobic, able-ist narratives that dehumanize people and families. These narratives can have violent and traumatic impact.

Let’s be clear, we’re glad your family had the chance to live the & build a better life for you, . But what would they think about their great-grandson taking away the same opportunity for others?

A child is not a "." A child is hope, possibility, and, if we must use financial terms, investment. Effectively taking away their most basic services is not only cruel, it's incredibly short-sighted. SPEAK.

time has come again for us to step up and stand with our immigrant families to make it clear that this mean-spirited attack against families that need support does not match the values that this country was built on.

CPC condemns the finalized public charge rule announced by the Federal Government as a systematic attack on low-income, immigrant families and communities of color.

1. US Marshal service is criminalizing pregnant asylum seekers. 2. And shackling them during and after labor. 3. Then sending their newborns to foster care. Who are we, America??
