Un-American Public Charge Ruling Is An Affront To The American Dream
Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Supreme Court voted 5-4 to allow the Trump administration’s discriminatory public charge rule to go into effect. Following the ruling, Mi Familia Vota issued the following statement from Hector Sanchez, Executive Director and CEO of Mi Familia Vota:
“This is an attack on working-class families and is an affront to the American dream. Allowing the government to say who can and cannot become a citizen-based on an EXPECTATION that they may use public assistance is not only un-American but will hurt millions of immigrants, and 12 million US-citizen family members, nearly two-thirds of them with children. Make no mistake this will hurt American families, complicating the lives of millions needlessly.”
Mi Familia Vota is a national civic engagement organization that unites Latino, immigrant, and allied communities to promote social and economic justice through citizenship workshops, voter registration, and voter participation. Mi Familia Vota has operations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, and Texas.
