Trump White Supremacist Policies Endanger Immigrant Families

WASHINGTON, DC— The Trump administration announced changes to the ‘public charge’ rule, geared to restrict immigrants who use some government benefits from gaining permanent lawful immigration status. Dorian Warren, President of Community Change, and Sulma Arias, spokesperson for the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) issued the following statement:

Dorian Warren, President of Community Change Action, said:

“The Trump administration’s attacks on programs that help families stay healthy, and also put food on the table is a new low. No parent should be forced to choose between putting food on the table or staying united with their family. It’s an attack on the social safety net and another attack on immigrants.

We must come together to build the future that we want. One where Black, brown and immigrant families are liberated.”

Sulma Arias, spokesperson for FIRM Action, said:

“Coming on the heels of the murderous rampage in El Paso and the appalling ICE separation families in Mississippi, this action further demonstrates the Republican Party has completely lost all semblance of moral compass.  

What kind of people would jeopardize the health and lives of children in pursuit of racial purification? Our country can do better and we must hold those in leadership accountable. Together we can build the country that honors all of our lives, no exception. Together we will keep fighting back until we’re all free.”
