Want to take action now? Below are opportunities to speak out against recent proposals from the Trump Administration that would harm immigrant families.
This list will be updated on a regular basis. We also recommend that you get involved with the PIF campaign to stay up to date on new threats and advocacy opportunities.
Comment on the Proposed Rule on SNAP
There is less than one month remaining to submit a comment on a proposed rule that would take access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) away from 755,000 people. The Trump Administration’s anti-immigrant policies and a growing fear of immigration consequences have already contributed to a 10 percent drop in enrollment nationwide among immigrant families eligible for SNAP. If finalized, this rule would result in even more immigrants and people of color losing access to nutrition assistance.
What you can do:
- Submit a comment on or before April 2. CLASP and NILC have developed a template comment, focusing on the impact of the SNAP proposed rule to immigrants and communities of color. A link to our template comment is available at http://bit.ly/PIFSNAPcomment.
- Ask your friends, family and colleagues to also speak up and get your community engaged! Several PIF partners have developed comment platforms to easily submit a comment. Click here to see sites from FRAC, CAP, and Feeding America.
