Public Charge

Background
The Trump Administration wants to take away health care, housing, and food assistance from low-income immigrant families, including U.S. citizen children. Denying access to basic needs programs will decimate their health and well-being.

Take Action
President Trump’s anti-immigrant attacks put families in danger. But immigrant families, advocates, and everyone can take action to fight back. The public will have at least 60 days to submit comments. The Administration must review the comments before revising and finalizing the draft. ASIA urges every individual, organization, leaders, and the AAPI community to submit public comments to save the American values of freedom and opportunity for all.
Stay tuned and connected by signing up for our newsletter and following us on Facebook and Twitter. Once the public comment period opens up, you can submit comments here.
