Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs
The San Francisco Human Services Agency and Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs issue a joint statement regarding the Biden Administration’s announcement that it is replacing former President Trump’s “public charge” rule for immigrants.
Citywide effort is underway to count every resident in advance of September 30th deadline. Census Week of Action includes safe community outreach events, phone banking, and public service announcements from the San Francisco Giants and Golden State Warriors.
The new “public charge” rule went into effect on February 24, 2020. But many immigrants will not be impacted by these changes. Talk to a qualified immigration attorney to see if these changes may or may not affect you.
