New Public Charge Rules!
On August 14, 2019, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published a final rule regarding public charge and immigrants. The new rule will take effect on October 15, 2019.
The new rule redefines the definition of a public charge. Now, instead of assessing whether an applicant is likely to become primarily dependent on the government for income support, the new rule defines a public charge as a person who receives any number of public benefits for more than an aggregate of 12 months over any 36-month period of time.
The rule expands the list of publicly-funded programs that immigration officers may consider when deciding whether someone is likely to become a public charge.
Benefits received by family members of the immigrant will still not be considered in the public charge determination.
This is just a very brief overview. For a more detailed overview please see the one published by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center at: https://www.ilrc.org/public-charge
