Organizational Sign-On Comment

Our organizational sign-on comment closed April 22, 2022, with more than 1,000 organizational signatories representing every U.S. state and the District of Columbia. We thank our partners and allies nationwide for their leadership and support.

The public charge regulatory reform effort is not the only opportunity to secure a brighter future for immigrant families. We urge partners to take action in support of the LIFT the BAR Act. This critical legislation restores access to public programs like Medicaid, CHIP, and SNAP, by removing the “five-year bar” and other barriers that deny critical care and aid to people who are lawfully present and their families.
