CLASP Helps Lead Amicus Brief on Public Charge Rule

On September 12, CLASP along with the National Housing Law Project and the Food Research & Action Center, and more than 20 other groups, filed an amicus brief in several cases opposing the Trump Administration’s Public Charge Rule. The amicus brief argues that the Public Charge Rule will result in immigrants forgoing crucial health, housing, and nutrition benefits that help families and communities thrive. The brief was drafted and filed with the assistance of the law firm of Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP.
