Action Needed to Protect Immigrant Families. With a new proposed “public charge” ruling, the Trump Administration wants to take away Medicaid/Medi-Cal, Section 8 housing assistance, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and SNAP food assistance from low-income immigrant families, including U.S. citizen children. The change would deny them Green Cards, or even deport those with Green Cards if they use these vital services. Denying access to basic needs programs will decimate their health and wellbeing. Read more.   More detail. What the list of banned services could look like in the future.
