Thursday, December 6, 2018

In our first-ever campaign, we successfully achieved our goal and over 20 unique comments have been submitted by our foundation members. Nationally, over 130,000 comments – the vast majority opposing the rule – have been submitted to Federal Register.  

Throughout our nation’s history, the United States has often been defined by the phrase “E Pluribus Unum” — meaning “Out of many, we are one.”  The proposed public charge rule betrays our nation’s most fundamental values.  By punishing families for accessing healthy food, health care, and housing, the regulation would make the United States sicker, hungrier, and poorer.  Our country is stronger when all people, regardless of immigration status, have the opportunity to live, work, and thrive. As Grove Foundation founding trustee Eva Grove wrote in a recent Mercury News op-ed, “Opportunity is the promise America has held out to the world. Our country should not step away from that promise.”

If your foundation submitted a comment and would like to be listed, please let us know! 

Finally, there is still time to make your voice heard!  Submit a comment opposing the public charge rule by Monday, December 10 via the Protecting Immigrant Families comment portal.
