Today, as the implementation of Trump's harmful #PublicCharge policy weighs heavily on the minds of immigrants & their families, all of us who value diversity & share a vision for a more just & equitable country must strengthen our resolve to keep fighting. 1/ #ProtectFamilies
Over the past three years, the Trump administration has used threats, false starts, exaggeration, and misinformation around #PublicCharge to deliberately spread fear and confusion among immigrant communities navigating an already dysfunctional system. 2/ #ProtectFamilies
These tactics are designed to maximize this cruel policy’s harmful impact. As a result, we’ve heard far too many reports of families avoiding crucial economic support programs vital to their kids & loved ones’ wellbeing—even before the policy went into effect. 3/ #ProtectFamilies
Faced with these kinds of attacks, we must arm ourselves and our communities with reliable information. Fear is Trump’s weapon of choice, and facts are families’ best defense. 4/ #ProtectFamilies
All of us can also use our voice to fight back against this regulation. Let your elected officials at the local, state, and federal level know that you oppose these hateful efforts to radically restrict our legal immigration system to only the wealthy. 5/ #ProtectFamilies
This policy may be in the rulebooks today, but future administrations can and should remove it immediately. We shouldn't stigmatize immigrants and families for meeting their basic needs. 6/ #ProtectFamilies
This fight is about the country we want. We must reject Trump’s attempts to redefine who we are and who belongs here. 7/ #ProtectFamilies
We must keep striving for a country that welcomes newcomers & where each of us—no matter the size of our pocketbook or where we were born—has the ability to fulfill our potential grounded in the same spirit of opportunity that has fostered generations of success stories. 8/
We urge voters who share this vision of a diverse country where everyone has the freedom to thrive to make your voices heard this November in this most consequential election. 9/ #ProtectFamilies
Individuals and service providers seeking more information about the new “public charge” policy should visit 10/10 #ProtectFamilies
