Immigration & Public Charge: The New Rule 2020

Product ID: CA3051R
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

PLEASE NOTE: As of July 29, 2020, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York has enjoined the implementation, application, and enforcement of the public charge rule nationwide.

Produced by the Public Interest Law Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin in partnership with State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE®

Changing criteria for grounds of inadmissibility

On February 24, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security’s new public charge rule went into effect. U.S. federal law already required individuals seeking permanent residency or legal status to prove they won’t be a burden, i.e., be “primarily dependent on the government for subsistence.” However, the revised rules expand the criteria for a public charge and implement new consequences for receipt of certain social services.

The shift in policy is causing a lot of confusion and fear, prompting even citizens and legal residents to drop public benefits.1 Immigration & Public Charge: The New Rule will provide an in-depth overview of the new rule, particularly how it’s affecting low-income individuals and their families.
