Protect Families: Submit Your Comment to Oppose Public Charge Rule

November 13, 2018

Join Utahns Against Hunger in denouncing the Trump Administration’s deeply flawed proposed public charge rule that would undermine decades of progress in reducing hunger in Utah and across the country. The proposed rule will increase poverty, harm health and children's ability to learn, and weaken our communities.

Utah Community Groups Oppose Change That Will Impact Immigrant Communities.

This mean-spirited proposal unravels longstanding, sound public policy that draws a clear line between the nutrition, health, housing and other public benefits that may be used without causing public charge consequences, and those that may not. It dramatically expands the list of programs that could trigger a public charge determination with adverse immigration consequences. To learn more read the Food Research & Action Center’s (FRAC) statement and fact sheet.

As the nutrition lead on the Protecting Immigrant Families (PIF) Campaign Steering Committee, FRAC has launched a platform for the public to weigh in on how this rule will make hunger and poverty in this country far worse.
