The Trump Administration’s terrible “public charge” rule attacking immigrants took effect today (see THE BEST RESOURCES FOR LEARNING HOW THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S NEW PUBLIC CHARGE RULE WILL NEGATIVELY AFFECT OUR STUDENTS & THEIR PARENTS).

NPR ran a short and very informational piece today that I think all teachers should read:Immigrants React As Public Charge Rule Goes Into Effect.
It provides important information on what and who is affected by the new rule.

In addition, a column appearing in The New York Times today is also well-worth reading: The New Wealth Test for Immigrants Is Un-American.
