UPDATE: SCOTUS Public Charge Ruling Will Put Immigrant Families and Children at Risk (information below from the Center for the Study of Social Policy)

Bonnie Berman ·
On Tuesday, January 27, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) allowed the Trump administration to enforce the "public charge" rule, denying certain immigrants to gain permanent resident if they're likely to need government assistance to basic needs like food, shelter, and health care. The SCOTUS 5-4 decision on the public charge rule, previously overturned by lower courts, broadens the definition of public charge to an immigrant who receives one or more public benefits for more than 12...

RESOURCE: Public Charge and Health Insurance in California information from Western Center on Law and Poverty

Bonnie Berman ·
Beginning February 24, 2020, the new public charge rule used for immigrants entering the country or applying for permanent residency takes a close look at health insurance.
