Ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to Lift Injunction on the Public Charge Rule Represents Loss for Children and Families

COLUMBUS – The Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio is deeply disappointed in the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision, yesterday, to lift the injunction on new restrictions the Trump administration is making to the ‘public charge’ regulation.  This new regulation makes harmful changes to how the government determines which immigrant families can remain in the country. The public charge rule is expected to affect over 56,000 Ohioans who are here legally and therefore, entitled to apply for public assistance.
