Media statement: public charge rule puts immigrant survivors at risk
The administration’s new public charge rule puts immigrant families, including children, at risk if they use public programs to recover from, or escape abuse and meet basic needs like food, housing, and health care. AIS strongly opposes the rule which deters survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault from accessing critical protections they need to escape or recover from abuse.

Media statement: AIS Denounces Latest Attempt to End Asylum
“The administration’s new rule is a broadscale attack on asylum, a critical humanitarian protection that the U.S. is obligated to provide under inter-national law.
