USCIS updates public charge resources webpage.

USCIS updated its public charge resources webpage to include more information regarding how to reduce undue fear and confusion among immigrants and their families, including U.S. citizens and their children, that may prevent them from seeking access to critical government services available to them. The updated resources clarify that relatively few noncitizens in the U.S. are both subject to the public charge ground of inadmissibility and eligible for the public benefits considered under the 1999 Interim Field Guidance, including Supplemental Security Income, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and programs supporting non citizens who are institutionalized for long-term care at government expense.
