Public Charge Update from the Protecting Immigrant Families Campaign (1/27/2020): Today, the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily set aside the preliminary injunctions that prevented DHS’ public charge rule from taking effect nationwide. This was the last of the three district court nationwide injunctions in force, which means that the DHS rule can go into effect nationwide, except in Illinois where it is blocked by a statewide injunction.

Trump Administration attacks — through administrative actions, divisive rhetoric, ICE raids, and other means — on immigrant families have created an environment of heightened fear and confusion.

This has contributed to a chilling effect on the use of nutrition and other critical assistance programs that extends far beyond the individuals and families who are directly impacted, resulting in a poorer, sicker, and hungrier nation.
