GLAD has joined amicus briefs opposing new Department of Homeland Security regulations that upend the standards for determinations of who qualifies as a “public charge.” This change will disproportionately harm LGBTQ people and people of color who have immigrated to the US, including those who are elderly, pregnant, survivors of intimate partner violence, or have disabilities.

The briefs were filed in the La Clinica de la Raza, State of California, Make the Road New York, and State of New York cases September 10, 2019.
