Massachusetts Protecting Immigrant Families Campaign: Questions about the DHS Public Charge Rule
The Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA), Health Care For All and Health Law Advocates have been working together as part of the national Protecting Immigrant Families (PIF) campaign to fight back against the negative changes in public charge regulation here in Massachusetts.
On January 27, 2020 the U.S. Supreme Court set aside the preliminary injunction from New York that prevented the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) public charge rule from taking effect nationwide. This was the last of the three district court nationwide injunctions standing, which means that the DHS rule can go into effect nationwide, except in Illinois where it is blocked by a statewide injunction. That said, the Department of Homeland Security has NOT yet announced a timeline for implementation.
In the meantime, we know many advocates and community members have questions. In preparation for a statewide webinar that we will be hosting in the near future, please use this form to submit your questions ahead of time. If you are interested in joining the MA-PIF email list please include you name, organization and email. We will follow up soon with more information on how you can join our webinar.
