September 24, 2018: Multiple Challenges to Ending Hunger as Trump Administration Attacks Needy Immigrants With New Public Charge Proposals

September 24, 2018: Just this past weekend, the Trump administration introduced something they’ve threatened since early last year: their proposal for new rules to change the guidance for “Public Charge.” If these new proposed rules were passed, it would mean that many immigrant families lawfully present here may drop out of programs they need such as CalFresh because their receipt of these benefits may be used against them later as they try to upgrade their immigration status. (It’s important to remember these rules have a long way to go before being finalized and going into effect, and could change drastically, especially if we all comment on them.)

At the same time, our California Governor signed AB 2178, which would make groups doing voluntary, charitable provision of food, for free, to poor people, a crime unless groups registered and paid a fee to the local county health agency.

That kind of food provision would be one of the only avenues open to immigrant families who would avoid government food assistance (if the proposed Public Charge rules pass.) Federal and state government will have issued a double blow against people who want to end hunger.

Again, please remember the new anti-immigrant rules have not been approved yet they have to be officially published first, and after that would follow a period of 60 days in which we the people can flood them with comments. We do expect this to happen very soon though. Be ready with your comments! More details below.
