Stop Trump’s Attack on Immigrant Families

NEWS UPDATE: Reuters reported on May 3 that the Trump Administration is preparing regulations that would allow the government to deport lawful permanent residents and other immigrants if they utilize any of an array of public programs aimed at reducing illness, hunger, and poverty. For more information go to the Analysis & Research page and sign up to our listserv for further updates.

In 2017, The Protecting Immigrant Families, Advancing Our Future (“PIF”) campaign was created by the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) and the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) to combat the Trump Administration’s attack on access to health care, nutrition, housing, and economic security programs for millions of immigrant families. Our campaign brings together leading advocates for immigrants, children, education, health, anti-hunger, anti-poverty, and faith communities. Together, we not only defend against these threats, but also work to lay the foundation for a more productive national dialogue about our immigrant tradition and our country’s future.

Combat the Chill

Combat the chilling effect of Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda through community education, in partnership with our PIF partners and allies.

Block & Delay

Block and/or delay proposed public charge changes and other attacks through continued advocacy, congressional oversight and litigation.

Build a Vision

Build support for an affirmative vision of a nation where all are truly equal, immigration is recognized as a strength, and no one in America is denied the essentials of life because of where they were born.
