Cities for Action condemns House passage of the bill, urges Senate to reject the bill

WASHINGTON – The House of Representatives has clearly shown that they are out of touch with the needs of children and families in this country. Among the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act's many proposed changes, the bill would hurt immigrant and mixed-status families by limiting their Child Tax Credit eligibility. We urge the Senate to do right by the many thousands of working families and oppose the passage of this bill.
