New “Public Charge” Rule Threatens the Well-being of King County Residents

HealthierHere urges community leaders, businesses and individuals to voice opposition

HealthierHere, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving health and health equity in King County, and its 26-member multi-sector Governing Board join with advocates, individuals and families across the state to condemn the proposed “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” rule proposed by the Department of Homeland Security on September 22, 2018.

If finalized, this new rule would have a significant and detrimental effect on the health and safety of our communities. People who have legally immigrated to the United States, their families and their U.S. born children will be forced to give up the basic assistance for which they are lawfully eligible – such as healthcare, food, and housing – or risk being separated from each other.
