Under a proposed regulation now under consideration, the Trump Administration has made clear its intent to make life more difficult for immigrant families, including their U.S. citizen children, by restricting their ability to access basic programs that safeguard their health care, nutrition, housing, and economic security.

Immigrant families should not have to choose between getting health care, feeding their children, claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), for example, or obtaining permanent immigration status for themselves or a family member.

In response, advocates throughout the country have joined together to create the Protecting Immigrant Families, Advancing Our Future campaign, co-led by the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) and the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP). 

One important way to fight back is to share stories of how these programs lift up individuals, families and communities, and to document the harm that this regulation will cause.

If you or someone you know will be affected by this regulation and would be interested in sharing a personal story as part of these advocacy efforts, please fill out this short form and the Protecting Immigrant Families staff will follow up with you for more information.
