On February 24, USCIS implemented the Trump administration’s updated public charge rule. The rule broadens the type of public benefits that are considered for inadmissibility determinations, including Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, Medicaid, and food stamps. Already considered were cash assistance programs. The rule applies to those seeking permanent residency, including change of status, as well as those seeking to extend their nonimmigrant status.
