Proposed Regulation Threatens Colorado Families

On October 10, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a proposal to change the definition of a “public charge” when considering an individual’s application to legally enter the U.S., renew a visa or change their nonimmigrant status. If adopted, the proposal could negatively impact an estimated 323,000 Coloradans––including 143,000 children.

As an organization dedicated to improving the lives of Colorado’s low-income children and their families, Gary Community Investments is concerned by how this proposal would harm Coloradans, and is firmly against its adoption.
