"Public Charge" Rule: Trump Administration Action Targeting Immigrant Families

On August 13, 2019, the County of Santa Clara, along with the City and County of San Francisco, filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration to invalidate the new "public charge" rule that allows the federal government to deny entry or green cards to legal immigrants for using certain assistance programs, like non-emergency Medicaid or food stamps (now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP).  

The complaint can be found here​.  And the County’s press release is available here.
