New York nonprofits blast Trump administration’s public charge rule

New York nonprofits are speaking out against the Trump administration’s public charge rule. 

Organizations like Make the Road New York and The New York Immigration Coalition are opposed to the rule, which would put permanent status in jeopardy for immigrants on public assistance. The stakes are high for both nonprofits and their clients, as people going without food stamps or health care may increasingly rely on services such as food banks or clinics. And in some cases, immigrants may even be reluctant to even get help from charities.
