Monday, December 10 - Protect Food Access for Families / Mayoral Candidate Forum / Indivisible Chicago Podcast

Actions You Can Take Today


Action 1: DEADLINE TODAY - Protect Immigrant Rights to Legal Benefits

The Trump administration has officially proposed a new regulation that would block immigrant families from having a permanent, secure future in the United States. Under the new regulation, immigrants who legally access to basic health supports, safe housing, and healthy food programs could be denied admission to the country or refused a green card. The proposed rule also makes clear that earning low wages, having children, or dealing with a medical condition could be held against immigrants seeking a permanent future in the United States.

This is the latest inhumane attack on the health and wellbeing of so many families and communities across the country. But together, we can stop this.

Under federal law, the Trump administration is required to read and respond to every unique comment before it can finalize its harmful regulation.

Take a few minutes now to post a public comment rejecting this inhumane attack on the health and wellbeing of countless families, communities, and children.
