Statement From Attorney General James On Intent To Sue Trump Administration Over Public Charge Rule 

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s announced change to the “Public Charge Rule,” which will expand the types of public benefits that would make an immigrant ineligible for citizenship: 

“President Trump’s new public charge rule is yet one more example of his Administration turning its back on people fighting to make a better life for them and their families. Under this rule, children will go hungry; families will go without medical care. I am committed to defending all of New York’s communities, which is why I intend to sue the Trump Administration over this egregious rule.”
