“Public charge” is a term used in immigration law to refer to a person who is likely to become primarily dependent on the government to meet their basic needs. If someone is found to be a public charge, the government can deny admission to the U.S. or refuse an application for lawful permanent residency. Under the new proposed rule, the government now wants to redefine “public charge” more expansively, as an immigrant who receives one or more listed public benefits. Learn more and comment. Comments due December 10th!
