Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison acknowledges the Trump administration could appeal after a federal judge rejected their move to tighten work requirements for the SNAP program, also known as food stamps. Ellison joined 15 other states and the City of New York to oppose the move and indicates if necessary he’ll continue the court fight:

“In this moment where we’re dealing with a COVID crisis, to think that this administration would limit food access to people is outrageous and a judge agreed with us — and so I’m proud of that.”

The Trump administration rolled out the plan last year, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue arguing it’s “about restoring the original intent of food stamps” and “moving more able-bodied Americans to self-sufficiency.”
