Make the Road New Jersey Responds to U.S. Supreme Court Decision to Allow Public Charge Rule to Advance, Pending Litigation

Immigrant Members of Make the Road NJ urge state of New Jersey to Expand Access to State Benefits 

(Elizabeth, NJ — January 27, 2020): On behalf of Make the Road New Jersey, the grassroots immigrant rights organization, Alberta Jimenez a leader, issued the following statement, in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the nationwide injunction on the Trump administration’s public charge rule:

“The Trump administration’s public charge regulation is an attack on our families, who are seeking to build a healthy life in this country. As a mother, and as an immigrant, the Trump administration’s rule tells me that if you aren’t white and wealthy, you aren’t welcome in the U.S. Our families all need access to life sustaining services for our children – like SNAP. We urge the state of New Jersey to increase state funded services for all families, regardless of status, to ensure we all are able to live healthy lives.  We will continue fighting until we defeat this cruel and racist rule.”
