Health Action Webinar – Immigrant Health Under Attack: Trump’s Public Charge Rule

08.23.2019

On Monday, August 12, the Trump administration finalized a cruel regulation that will force families to choose between being together or obtaining necessary services. The “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” rule will jeopardize the ability of immigrants to enter the U.S. or become permanent residents if they are eligible for, or could become eligible for, essential health care programs like Medicaid and Medicare subsidies, along with other programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

This webinar discusses the details of this rule and its implications for health and health care, and next steps for advocates.

Featured Speakers:

  • Cheryl Fish-Parcham, Director of Access Initiatives, Families USA
  • Claire McAndrew, Director of Campaigns and Partnerships, Families USA
  • Gabrielle Lessard, Senior Policy Attorney, National Immigration Law Center
  • Seciah Aquino, Senior Policy Manager, California Immigrant Policy Center
