Sign on to Support Public Benefits for Legal Permanent Residents

Immigrant advocacy organizations have been alerted to a possible federal policy shift which would make legal permanent residents more vulnerable to deportation if they use federal means-tested public benefits. This would have a chilling impact on immigrant communities using benefits for which they are legally eligible. In fact, we are already seeing the chilling impact here in Maryland. Please join Maryland Hunger Solutions in signing on to this letter being circulated by the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) which opposes the policy which will threaten millions of children with hunger and food insecurity, drive taxpaying immigrant families deeper into poverty, and discourage immigrants from accessing benefits to which they are eligible.
