Proposed Changes to “Public Charge” Determination
On October 10, 2018, the Trump administration formally announced a proposed regulation that would dramatically broaden the ‘public charge’ test that has been part of the federal immigration law for decades.
The rule targets legal immigration to the United States and will have dramatic negative impacts on economic security, public health and the ability of families to stay together. To view a summary of the proposed changes and a handout outlining who would be subject to this rule and what public assistance programs would be considered, please click here.

The comment period is open until December 10, 2018.
