State warns county not to ask legal status of WIC recipients

KSAL StaffApril 10, 2016

http://bit.ly/1SD6X2j) reports the Kansas Department of Health and Environment says asking about immigration status before the state changes eligibility requirements could result in termination of the county’s contract to operate WIC. County Commissioner Richard Ranzau suggested last fall that the county health department start using a questionnaire that would ask about immigration status of all who use department services. He later proposed that the state redefine eligibility requirements to block illegal immigrants from participating in WIC. He criticized the state for failing to give a clear answer about whether it plans to change those requirements. — Information from: The Wichita (Kan.) Eagle, http://www.kansas.com.]]>
