Comments on Proposed Public Charge Policy

If you are being watched, leave now!


December 10, 2018

Legal Momentum welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) proposed rule seeking to amend regulations regarding whether an alien is considered a “public charge” and consequently should be excluded from the United States.

Instead of promoting self-sufficiency, the proposed rule will penalize hard-working low- and moderate-income immigrant families, hurt our economy by increasing poverty and inequality, compromise the health and welfare of women and children, and jeopardize the safety of immigrant survivors of gender-based violence. Accordingly, we urge DHS to act expeditiously to withdraw this proposed rule in its entirety.
