FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Advocates, Service Providers Condemn Trump’s “Public Charge” Income Test


SEATTLE, Wash. — The Protecting Immigrant Families – Washington coalition condemns new regulations proposed by the Trump administration that would effectively impose an income test on family-based immigration and scare millions of families away from crucial health, housing and nutrition assistance. 

Testimonials from across the state: “How is Apple Health for Kids vital to you, your kids, or your community?”

“I work at WIC in Whatcom County; almost all the kids we see have Apple Health. We help parents keep up to date with getting well-child checks, immunizations and dental care for the kids. Parents and kids need access to medical and dental care to address issues before they become problems. Healthy kids become healthy adults, and that makes a healthy community.”

—Wendy Porter, Sumas
