The Trump administration has issued a new proposed “public charge” rule that would deny green cards to anyone who has used public benefits. Advocates warn this policy could jeopardize access to healthcare and health for immigrants and US citizens. Los Angeles County is preparing a plan to help the affected residents. Political analysts also comment on the motives of this measure, including the way it’s playing up in the elections, the way to participate in the public comment period, and what immigrants need to know to protect themselves.
