After a Federal Court granted a preliminary injunction halting President Donald Trump’s proposed changes to “Public Charge,” – which would have gone into effect today – The Legal Aid Society urged immigrant New Yorkers and others throughout the country in need of vital public assistance to continue using programs that they qualify for.
In addition to our Immigration Helpline, tonight (Tuesday, October, 15th) from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. ET, Legal Aid attorneys will participate in a phone bank hosted by the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, Catholic Charites, and Univision for anyone who is concerned about public benefits and immigration. Call to access free, safe legal help and find answers to questions.
Tuesday, October 15
5 p.m. – 8 p.m.
