Advocates Want Immigrants In Idaho To Know They Can Use Public Programs

Jan 3, 2020


Last summer, the Trump administration announced a rule change that would have penalized people applying for green cards if they used public benefit programs. 

This rule is currently blocked in federal courts. But as Boise State Public Radio’s Rachel Cohen reports, advocates across Idaho have been working to make sure the announcement doesn’t stop immigrants from signing up for programs that they’re legally eligible for.
