The Notorious I-864: No Longer a Shield Against “Public Charge” - Recording (.MP3)
Submitting a successful I-864 in order to shield your client from a finding of inadmissibility based upon the public charge ground has never been simple. Should DHS’s proposed rules regarding “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” take effect, this area of immigration law will become even more cumbersome, as USCIS and the consulates will look far beyond the affidavit of support to determine whether an applicant is likely to become a “public charge.” Our expert panelists will analyze both the current and proposed public charge rules and explain which public benefits could sabotage your client’s application.
- What Are the Current Guidelines for Determining Public Charge Inadmissibility Under INA §212(a)(4), and How Are These Guidelines Being Applied in Practice?
- Which Programs Qualify as “Public Benefits,” and Which Do Not?
- Would the Proposed New Rule Apply to Applicants Who Previously Accepted Public Benefits, or Only to Those Accepting Benefits in the Future?
- What Are the New Factors that USCIS and DOS Would Consider in Determining Whether an Applicant Is Likely to Receive Public Benefits, and What Factors Would Mitigate in Favor of Overcoming Public Charge Concerns?
- How Would the New Rule Affect Applicants Seeking to Change or Extend Their Nonimmigrant Status?
