DHS to release proposed rule to make ‘public charge’ as a ground for inadmissibility
DHS has drafted a notice of proposed rulemaking, that would allow immigration officers to scrutinize a potential immigrant's use of certain taxpayer-funded public benefits to determine if they could become a public burden. These taxpayer-funded public benefits include a broad array of local, state, and federal social services to which these families are legally entitled, including enrolling their U.S.-born children in Head Start or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
