Ninez A. Ponce, Ph.D., director of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, will be available for comment on the potential impact in California of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision this week on the Trump Administration’s “public charge” policy regarding immigrants. In 2018, a team led by Professor Ponce found the proposed change could reduce federally-funded assistance for current California residents by as much as $1.67 billion; researchers also found that nearly 70 percent of the California residents expected to disenroll from health care and nutrition assistance benefits after the rule change would be children.
