Publication Date

On August 7, 2023, the ILRC provided a comment to a recent USCIS Policy Manual update seeking to clarify who is subject to the public charge ground of inadmissibility. In the comment, ILRC provided suggested language for both the Policy Manual and the Form I-485 that would help to further lessen confusion that practitioners and applicants are facing in this area. ILRC also recommended changes to the USCIS web site for Form I-485 to ensure that information is consistent and accurate for applicants.
