The San Francisco Human Services Agency and Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs issue a joint statement regarding the Biden Administration’s announcement that it is replacing former President Trump’s “public charge” rule for immigrants.
The new “public charge” rule went into effect on February 24, 2020. But many immigrants will not be impacted by these changes. Talk to a qualified immigration attorney to see if these changes may or may not affect you.
On January 27, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court said the “public charge” rule could go into effect while the case is being decided in court. This means that using some public benefits could affect your application for a Green Card.
