Know the Facts about Public Charge

There is a new federal rule that changes how people are found to be a “Public Charge.” It lets the federal immigration agency look at a longer list of public benefits, and more factors such as family income, when deciding whether a person is likely to become a Public Charge in the future. This new rule doesn’t go into effect until October 15, 2019, and the rule is not retroactive, so any newly added benefits won’t start to count against people until October 15th.
