MAJOR CHANGES PROPOSED TO REGULATIONS REGARDING INADMISSIBILITY ON PUBLIC CHARGE GROUNDS
On September 21, 2018, the Department of Homeland Security proposed new regulations related to public charge grounds of inadmissibility. The proposed regulations expand U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) grounds to deny permanent resident applications based upon a green card applicant’s use of public benefit programs, such as food assistance or section 8 housing vouchers. The regulations will also apply to individuals seeking nonimmigrant visas, and to change of status applicants.
When the USCIS reviews an application for Permanent Resident status, the USCIS determines whether an applicant is likely to become a public charge or substantially dependent on the government for subsistence. Applicants found likely to become a public charge will be denied lawful permanent resident status.
