华盛顿特区 – 今天,特朗普政府发布了一项新的“公共负担”规定草案,该规则将惩罚寻求重要医疗保健和其他服务的移民,并将使给家属的绿卡赞助更加困难。
目前,在美国居住的头五年内,移民已被禁止使用大多数联邦福利计划。 拟议的法规极大地扩展了联邦政府拒绝绿卡申请的能力,通过这种走后门的方法攻击我们的家庭移民法律系统。

亞美公義促進中心,一个由五个民权组织构成的隶属机构,发布以下声明“我们对特朗普政府的另一项反移民政策感到愤怒。 国会拒绝了总统削减合法移民的要求,白宫却因此制定了这条规则,通过走后门的方法,绕过立法来减少移民。 历史上第一个所谓的“公共负担”规定是在美国反移民情绪高峰时期通过的,目的是限制贫困的爱尔兰移民进入美国。这个规定于 1882 年通过,也是在国会通过“排华法案”的同一年。 排华法案既包括中国移民,也阻止了已经在美国的华人移民成为公民。

这项拟议的规定超出了我们所见过的任何先前版本的公共负担规定,惩罚那些合法获得公共福利的辛勤工作移民,其中包括许多促进儿童健康的福利。移民法不应成为让美国变得更加白人主导化的工具。 以公共负担为借口排除亚裔,拉丁裔和非裔移民从根本上说是违反美国价值观的。 来自不同背景和不同收入水平的移民都为美国做出了巨大贡献。政府应该支持帮助家庭,帮助人们在最需要的时候能繁荣发展,而不是给他们灌输恐惧。”

ADVANCING JUSTICE WILL FIGHT PUBLIC CHARGE

LOS ANGELES, CA — Today, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officially posted proposed changes to public charge regulations in the Federal Register. Similar to the draft released on September 22, the posted regulations greatly expand the number of public benefit programs to include health care programs such as Medicaid or the Medicare Part D Low Income Subsidy Program, nutrition programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and housing assistance programs, such as the Section 8 housing and rental assistance programs.  

It also sets up an elitist and ageist system by providing detailed guidance on a series of factors used for public charge determinations which favor healthier, wealthier, and highly educated adults while penalizing children, older adults, people with lower incomes, people who are living with chronic health conditions or disabilities, and people who are not fluent in English.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice, an affiliation of five civil rights organizations, issues the following statement: 

“We are appalled at the Trump administration’s blatant attack on immigrant communities. The proposed regulations are inhumanely penalizing immigrant families for using life-saving health, nutrition, and housing services and essentially guaranteeing legal status to the highest bidder. 

Advancing Justice believes that immigrant families deserve the right to reunite with loved ones and use programs that ensure they are healthy, safe, and thriving. Staying in this country should not depend on what you look like, your age, or how much money you have or can make. It should be about how you contribute to your community and how you live your life. The proposed rule changes will lower immigration levels to the U.S., ultimately denying green cards to many family members of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, and change the fabric of our country.

Additionally, this rule will scare families away from critical safety net programs even if they will not be affected by the proposed changes. This “chilling effect” will be devastating to immigrant communities and communities across America. We have already seen many immigrant families discouraged from using public benefits or disenrolling from needed health, nutrition, and housing programs. We urge immigrant families to continue using these necessary programs now if they are needed.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice is committed to opposing these proposed regulations and to stop these mean-spirited and cruel changes. We strongly encourage our communities to fight back and take action by submitting public comments against the regulations online in the next 60 days at http://bit.ly/AAAJ-public-charge .”
