More than 210,000 individuals oppose Public Charge Rule

More than 210,000 individuals nationally submitted comments to oppose the Public Charge rule, a change that would harm California’s immigrant children if they use public services like MediCal and food stamps.

Thank you to the more than 750 Children’s Movement members that submitted comments opposing the rule. Your efforts helped send a strong and clear message to the Trump Administration to end attacks on the health and wellbeing of immigrant children.

The rule is not yet finalized. The Department of Homeland Security must now review and respond to every issue presented in the comments. Watch for more updates from The Children’s Movement on this issue.
