Conference call: Doug Rand on the Department of Homeland Security’s “public charge rule”


On Friday, October 11, the Business Forward Foundation was joined by Doug Rand, Senior Fellow and Director of the Technology and Innovation Initiative at the Federation of American Scientists, and co-founder of Boundless. Rand discussed the Department of Homeland Security’s “public charge rule” that will go into effect next week. He talked about the rule’s negative impact on businesses and how it reduces the talent pool availability to U.S. employers, imposes substantial paperwork burdens on immigrants and their employers, and overall financial burden to the American economy.
