Description

The Public Charge rule and the Remain in Mexico policy negatively impact individuals with disabilities and make it harder for legal immigration to the U.S. for low- and middle-income people. The Public Charge rule does not affect asylum seekers, but the Remain in Mexico policy results in a loss of protections for this population.
