Immigration proposal should not be allowed to take effect.
No one should ever have to choose between feeding their family and staying in this country. But that is exactly the situation many people will find themselves in if proposed changes to U.S. immigration policy are permitted to proceed. The changes would mean a person could be denied permanent residency if they have been a recipient of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps), Medicaid, federal housing assistance or other anti-poverty programs. This is just plain wrong.
The administration must change course. And members of Congress and people across the country should stand up against this or any change that cuts families off from food and medical care.
Don't punish people who need food aid
