USCIS Finalizes Rule on Ground of Inadmissibility

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently finalized its rule on the public charge ground of inadmissibility. All individuals applying for admission to or lawful permanent residence within the United States risk denial should USCIS decide that they are "likely to become a public charge." The new rule, which will take effect on December 23, 2022, uses a new set of criteria for determining inadmissibility and is intended to limit confusion over ground for public charge so that eligible noncitizens will not be afraid to take advantage of public benefits.
