Final public charge rule

U.S. President Donald Trump's administration unveiled a sweeping rule on Monday that some experts say could cut legal immigration in half by denying visas and permanent residency to hundreds of thousands of people for being too poor.

 

The long-anticipated rule, pushed by Trump's leading aide on immigration, Stephen Miller, takes effect Oct. 15. It would reject applicants for temporary or permanent visas if they fail to meet high enough income standards or if they receive public assistance such as welfare, food stamps, public housing or Medicaid.

 

"The Trump administration is trying to bypass Congress and implement its own merit based-immigration system. It's really a backdoor way of prohibiting low-income people from immigrating," said Charles Wheeler of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network Inc.

 

The rule is part of Republican Trump's efforts to curb both legal and illegal immigration, an issue he has made a cornerstone of his presidency.

As someone who is on a state funded WA Apple Health care program for pregnant women while I await my interview, I have of course been watching this closely. I’m posting here because it has been of interest to others on here as well. 60 days from Wednesday the proposed rule could go into effect, or it could be bogged down in court (likely). Still, best to keep a close eye on it.

 

Apparently I won’t face any consequences as they are supposedly leaving off pregnant women, and if you have a child on Medicaid (as I do) you do not have to pull them off as minors under 21 are also not considered as a negative factor in determining. Even so, the second open enrolment to purchase health insurance comes around on November 1st I think I’ll put both myself and my child on that instead. Yikes.

Based on the new ruling regarding enforcing long-standing Public Charge law, I am wondering how members view this? I am applying as a spouse of a US citizen, and satisfy the poverty level with assets ( house sale, pensions, lump sums ) and am going to do the medical soon. We have a buyer and I am retiring to move there.

Personally, I think it is a logical move and entirely reasonable, that people coming in need to be assessed on the totality of their situation. In the conference , the official stressed that it takes into account health, skills and the aspects that should be taken into account when assessing someone. 

We'll have enough money, and my wife can work, and I can if necessary, but it won't be make or break because I wouldn't move us there if that was the case. And I am low maintenance and will always have my wife and daughter's needs as top priority before mine anyway.

Therefore, I think it's common sense, and as long as my case is treated fairly and weighs it all up, I'm happy with the decision either way.

I was concerned when I saw the headline, but I am glad that there has been a final ruling, and I'll get a fair crack ( like before ).

What if the American citizen that is married to a LPR applied for SNAP for himself because he lost his job?  Or unemployment?  How does that affect the LPR? Or if the American citizen applied for SNAP for his american born kids of a LPR wife?
