    "Public Charge" Would Create a Public Health Crisis for Immigrant Families
    2/9/18 Vox has published a leaked version of a new regulation that seeks to limit legal immigrants' access to public benefits. In sum, the rule would empower immigration officials to deny immigrants' applications for certain visas or green cards if they are considered likely to utilize available social services. The regulation essentially gives immigration officials a structural racism roadmap, labeling immigrants as a "public charge" if they or their dependents (often their U.S.-born children) utilize needed benefits. The most likely effect of the revised rule is that it will scare immigrants away from using benefits they are legally eligible for, and undermine the ability of immigrant families to protect the health and well-being of themselves and their children.

    A Primer on Expedited Removal - FACT SHEET from American Immigration Council (AIC)
    President Trump's January 25, 2017, executive order directs the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to dramatically expand the use of expedited removal. Expedited removal is a process by which low-level immigration officers can quickly deport certain non-citizens. Since 2004, immigration officials have used expedited removal to deport individuals who arrive at our border, as well as individuals who entered without authorization if they are apprehended within two weeks of arrival and within 100 miles of the Canadian or Mexican border. One of the major problems with expedited removal is that the immigration officer making the decision virtually has unchecked authority.
