ANCOR is sharing this article by Politico Pulse as an update on a previous story. We have previously opposed changes to the public charge rule because of its potential effects on immigrants with disabilities.

As written by Politico Pulse:

“NEW YORK CITY ASKS FOR PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION ON ‘PUBLIC CHARGE’ RULE — The Trump administration’s new rule, set to take effect on October 15, would penalize immigrants who use public benefits like Medicaid by denying them green cards and visas. It would cause irreparable harm to the state’s economy and those immigrants seeking public benefits such as Medicaid and SNAP, according to new filings from the de Blasio administration POLITICO New York’s Amanda Eisenberg reports.”
