CPR Condemns the New “Public Charge” Rule

August 23, 2019

The Center for Public Representation (CPR) joins other disability, immigration, civil rights, and health care organizations in condemning the Department’s Homeland Security’s new “public charge” rule.  We believe that the new rule is unfair, dangerous, blatantly discriminatory, and illegal.  The new rule will exclude people from this country simply because they have a disability.  It’s a throwback to an outdated notion rooted in prejudice and discrimination: that people with disabilities do not have a valued place in our society.   To see CPR’s full statement about the new public charge rule, please click here.
