#ONENATION

Pack the Courthouse

Unite as #OneNation at the US District Court in Oakland to send a loud and clear message to the judge that our communities are against this rule.

This is a critical hearing and if the judge grants an injunction, this would mean the final rule slated for October 15th will not be implemented.

Join One Nation and coalition members in standing up with our immigrant communities against the final public charge rule which is expected to go into effect on October 15, 2019. The rule will harm 26 million Americans and force families to either forgo healthcare, food, and housing assistance, or possibly face separation and deportation.

Flyers available in Chinese, Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

Now available in English, Chinese, Khmer, Korean, Mongolian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai and Vietnamese.

What is Public Charge?

If the US government thinks a legal immigrant might rely on them as the main source of support at any point in time, they label you a “public charge.”

If one is labeled a “public charge,” the US can stop you from coming to the US and turn down your application for lawful permanent residence (aka “green card”).

 
 

Proposed Changes To Public Charge

The government wants to expand who can be labeled a “public charge” by adding more benefits that can put you at risk, including healthcare, food assistance, and housing assistance.

They want to use these factors to judge whether you might rely on public assistance at any time in the future:

So even if you don’t use benefits, if they think you or someone in your family might at any point in time, you could be labeled a “public charge.”

Many of our families would be hurt by this proposed rule change.
