How to Submit a Comment on Proposed "Public Charge" Rules

How do I submit a comment to DHS before the deadline?

The League of Women Voters of Richardson has been a longtime member of a coalition of groups supporting the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP/Medicaid).

Access to this program by recent immigrant families is in danger due to rule changes proposed by the Department of Homeland Security.

The public has an opportunity to comment on these proposed rule changes. The deadline to submit a public comment is 12:00 noon on December 10, 2018.

Background information and instructions on how to submit a public comment are available in the Public Charge Advocacy Toolkit.

A comprehensive discussion of the proposed changes can be found on the website of The Shriver Center.

Please take a moment to submit a comment to DHS opposing the proposed rule changes. Thank you.
