The Trump Administration has proposed a rule that would deter legal immigrants from seeking help for themselves and their children.

The rule would make it even more difficult for immigrants to stay in the U.S. legally if they sought help through federal nutrition, housing and health programs. The rule will increase poverty, harm health and learning and weaken our communities.

Under the proposed rule, immigration officials could turn away legal immigrants seeking to remain here — or to come to the country in the first place — if they have received or are judged likely to receive any benefits tied to need that are available only to immigrants lawfully in the United States.
