California Medical Association (CMA) President David H. Aizuss, M.D., issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s new public charge rule that targets immigrant families:

"This new rule hurts our most vulnerable residents and will be a major setback for public health in California and the nation as a whole. This is another effort by the Administration in Washington to target immigrant families – including those who are here legally – for political gain. CMA will aggressively challenge any efforts to take health care away from California residents and will continue to work with state leaders to stand up to misguided public policies that will harm California families."
