What is Public Charge?

If the US government thinks a legal immigrant might rely on them as the main source of support at any point in time, they label you a “public charge.”

If one is labeled a “public charge,” the US can stop you from coming to the US and turn down your application for lawful permanent residence (aka “green card”).

 
 

Proposed Changes To Public Charge

The government wants to expand who can be labeled a “public charge” by adding more benefits that can put you at risk, including healthcare, food assistance, and housing assistance.

They want to use these factors to judge whether you might rely on public assistance at any time in the future:

So even if you don’t use benefits, if they think you or someone in your family might at any point in time, you could be labeled a “public charge.”

Many of our families would be hurt by this proposed rule change.
