Stop Trump’s Attack on Immigrant Families

The Trump administration is preparing regulations allowing it to deport people with “green cards” and other immigrants if they use public programs aimed at reducing illness, hunger, and poverty. Here’s the truth: You CANNOT lose your citizenship for using basic needs programs you qualify for. This is an attempt to intimidate immigrants and their families. We’re fighting back.

About Protecting Immigrant Families

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.
