The city of Baltimore is suing the Trump administration for its efforts to make it more difficult for immigrants who receive public benefits to gain legal status in the U.S.

The Trump administration has moved to treat noncash benefits such as food stamps, Medicaid and housing vouchers as a negative factor against immigrants who are seeking to remain in the United States.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh said in a statement that the Trump administration’s efforts are “an affront to the ideals and principles on which this nation was founded.”

“Baltimore is a welcoming City, known for embracing immigrants and also benefiting from their many contributions,” Pugh said. “We are determined to resist this latest attempt to deprive our immigrant communities of basic services and are confident we will prevail.”
