The DHS issued final rule which will take effect on October 15, 2019 which determines whether an applicant for adjustment of status, change of status, a visa or admission is "likely at any time to become a public charge" and therefore inadmissible to the United States. The final rule defines the term public charge to mean an alien who receives one or more designated public benefits for more than 12 months, in total, within any 36-month period.
The final rule at 8 CFR 212.21(b) defines a public benefit as:
- Any federal, state, local, or tribal cash assistance for income maintenance, including:
- Social Security Income (SSI), 42 U.S.C. 1381 et seq.;
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), 42 U.S.C. 601 et seq.;
- Federal, state, or local cash benefits programs for income maintenance (often called "General Assistance" in the State context, but which also exist under other names);
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), 7 U.S.C. 2011 to 2036c;
- Section 8 Housing Assistance under the Housing Choice Voucher Program as administered by HUD under 42 U.S.C. 1437f;
