Public Charge Rule
Today the members of the Nevada Legislature Committee on Health Care heard testimony on how the Public Charge Rule will affect the health of immigrant children in Nevada.

During the Public Comment period, Nevada AAP Executive Director Leann McAllister gave a public comment (downloadable by clicking the image at left) stating the AAP's opposition to the Public Charge rule.

The statement also informed the Committee that the Nevada AAP joined with similar physician associations at the end of January to file amicus briefs with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit urging the Court to affirm a preliminary injunction to the Trump Administration’s new rules that direct the State Department to deny green cards and visas to immigrants who are likely to use government assistance programs in
the future.

The Nevada AAP joins the AAP in encouraging families and doctors to visit the
Protecting Immigrant Families website to better understand their rights and public charge.
