Public Charge Webinar - Shared screen with speaker view
If someone has Special Immigrant Status but is now 19yrs old and has not yet gotten a ruling on their asylum application (the asylum interview was in Nov. 2017), is this person at risk if he's in the child welfare system?
Does the new proposed rule still exclude groups like refugees, asylees, t-visas, etc.
Would this rule apply to pregnant women?
In answer to Rona B’s question - yes.
If children are US citizens and access benefits (Medical Assistance, qualified by income or disability status), does this affect parents' classification as public charge?
when does the 3 year look back period go into effect and how does this work with the 60 day window that will be given before the new regulations go into effect?
Says family will not be considered but in the example, how does Affidavit of Support of husband get considered if he is receiving benefits?
In Sandra example, the past receipt of MA will not affect but if she was pregnant and receiving MA within 60 days of rule it WOULD be considered, right?
Does this affect people with conditional Permanent residency. for example people married less than 2 years.
Is there any chance that people will be denied benefits or rather they will be penalized for using benefits when applying for documentation?
this does not affect folks renewing green cards right?
Are there specific areas that advocates would encourage us to focus our comments on, in addition to generally opposing the regulation? Like keeping the CHIP exclusion?
