Update: September 24, 2018

The Department of Homeland Security has released a new “public charge” rule that would discriminate against people with disabilities and their families seeking to enter the U.S. or become U.S. citizens.  Many people with disabilities and their families rely on programs that the new rule would use as a basis for excluding them, including Medicaid (which is the only source for the many disability services not covered by private insurance), as well as food and housing assistance. The new rule would cut off these supports for immigrant families, or discourage families from using these critical public services for fear of harming their immigration status. It is critical that the disability community speak out against this devastating rule during the forthcoming public comment period.  Check back for here for updates and visit Protecting Immigrant Families for more information.
