Public Charge FAQs

March 8, 2021

The Trump Public Charge Rule Has Been Canceled!

The Justice Department and USCIS have withdrawn court filings begun under the Trump Administration which defended the Trump rule against lower court rulings that said it was unconstitutional. This means that those court ruling stand. It means that immigrants who qualify to adjust status through petitions filed before May 1, 2001 or through having entered the US with inspection and have a spouse or 21 year old or older citizen child are probably eligible for adjustment of status to get a green card without leaving the United States. These applicants no longer have to worry about their income, or receiving most public benefits such as MediCal, CalFresh (food stamps), or section 8 vouchers.   

If you think you may be eligible, make an appointment at IMPORTA to begin your application. There is no charge.

Alert! Never drop any public benefit that you or members of your family are entitled to!
