Don’t Let the Trump Administration
Spike Hunger, Sickness, and Poverty in Our Country

The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) proposed “public charge” rule would fuel rates of hunger and food insecurity among immigrant families, including families with U.S. citizen children.

Join FRAC and the Protecting Immigrant Families Campaign in telling DHS how this rule would spike hunger in communities across our nation, and that it should be withdrawn. The Campaign has a goal of collecting 100,000 comments – submit your comment today.

Deadline to submit comments is on or before December 10, 2018.

Tell the Trump Administration the rule will:

  • Fuel rates of hunger and food insecurity among immigrant families, including those with U.S. citizen children.

  • Increase fear and deter eligible immigrant families from participating in SNAP, making hunger and poverty worse.

  • Sow confusion and chaos on how to interpret this complex rule among immigrant families and government agencies, schools, social service providers, and charitable networks.

  • Restrict access to SNAP, Medicaid, Medicare Part D, and housing programs, resulting in greater poverty and a sicker, poorer, and hungrier nation.

  • Harm the economy, grocery retailers, and agricultural producers by reducing the amount of SNAP dollars available to spur local economic activity.

We ask that you modify the language to reflect your own thoughts and experiences so that each submitted comment counts as a unique comment.
