Bronx Health REACH Files Comments on Proposed “Public Charge” Rule

This executive action would make it harder for legal immigrants seeking permanent residency to get it if they have received certain kinds of public assistance including Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)/ food stamps, and housing subsidies. Below are comments sent by the Bronx Health REACH Coalition in response to the Department of Homeland Security’s proposed changes to the public charge rule.
