Green Card - The New Public Charge Rule - Citizenship

What the new Public Charge Rule does not mean for you?

After months of preparation and discussion USCIS announced the final version of the proposed amendment for the public charge ground of inadmissibility. It will go into effect ( Green Card ) on October 15, 2019. I discussed this proposal last year in a video. After reviewing the final rule, I think it’s still very confusing for the general public. Maybe this was intended, but there is a lot of misinformation out there regarding this rule.

First of all, if you are a green card holder, you have nothing to worry about. Period. It’s as simple as that. This rule is about the government’s assessment of whether a prospective immigrant will become a public charge. Prospective immigrant means someone who does not have a green card, but hopefully who will get a green card and become a permanent resident.

If you have a green card, you are already a permanent resident. You will not be questioned for public benefits you used when you are applying for citizenship. I can’t stress how important this is. There are so many green card holders who are afraid for no reason. Again, maybe this was intended.

Also very important, if you are becoming a green card holder after being granted asylum, this rule doesn’t apply to you either. Period. There is no but. Many people from my clientele, who are granted asylum, afraid to use public benefits like Medicaid, Food Stamps etc. They think it will be harmful for them in the future. WRONG! When U.S. government grants you asylum that means government declares that you are a refugee. A refugee is someone who has nowhere else to go and can’t return to his/her home country because of fear of persecution.

Let’s step back for a minute and think about this. A refugee does not immigrate by choice. They are forced to immigrate. So, it would be ridiculous to expect refugees to not use public benefits. Why would the U.S. government accept that you are a refugee and not give you a green card later because you used public benefits? It does not make sense, right? That’s why Congress came up with an exception for refugees and asylees.

Unfortunately, actual rule and the procedures it brings are very complex. Let me try to elaborate what I mean by complex. If you currently use the public benefits below or used them in the past and planning to apply for a green card, I strongly recommend that you have a consultation with an immigration attorney. You could be applying for green card within the country through adjustment of status or outside of the country through consular processing.

USCIS lists these public benefits in the rule[1]:

  • Any federal, state, local, or tribal cash assistance for income maintenance
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Federal, state or local cash benefit programs for income maintenance (often called “General Assistance” in the state context, but which may exist under other names)
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or formerly called “Food Stamps”)
  • Section 8 Housing Assistance under the Housing Choice Voucher Program
  • Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance (including Moderate Rehabilitation)
  • Public Housing under section 9 the Housing Act of 1937, 42 U.S.C. 1437 et seq.
  • Federally funded Medicaid (with certain exclusions)

I should also note that if you used public benefits, you are not automatically prevented from getting a green card. There is a threshold amount. The final rule considers an alien to be a public charge if he or she receives public benefits for more than 12 months in the aggregate in any 36-month period, such that the receipt of two benefits in one month counts as two months[2].

The law instructs the officer making this determination to consider certain factors. This means that the adjudicating officer must weigh both the positive and negative factors when determining whether someone is more likely than not at any time in the future to become a public charge. As required by law, and this final rule, when making a public charge inadmissibility determination, a USCIS officer must consider the applicant’s:

  • Age;
  • Health;
  • Family status;
  • Assets, resources, and financial status;
  • Education and skills;
  • Prospective immigration status;
  • Expected period of admission; and
  • Sufficient Form I-864, when required under section 212(a)(4)(C) or (D) of the INA.

Pending Immigration Matters - Federal Court, Mandamus Relief

Writ of Mandamus Relief at Federal Court for Pending Immigration Matters

Mandamus, is a Latin word which translates as “We Order”. It is an order from a Superior Court to a lower court or tribunal or public authority to perform an act which is within the scope of its authority. ( Pending Immigration Matters)

In the immigration context, it is a writ issued to the relevant agency (usually USCIS-U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ) to do a thing which is its duty, but, which, it has failed to do so far. This writ is not sought as a matter of right. It is completely up to court whether to issue a writ of mandamus or not.

Statutory basis for Mandamus jurisdiction is under 28 USC §1361. This provision gives the power to the court to compel an officer or employee of DHS or another government agency to perform a nondiscretionary duty by issuing a writ of mandamus.

Under Belegradek v. Gonzales, 523 F.Supp.2d 1364 (N.D. Ga. 2007), a mandamus lawsuit must successfully put forward, (1) a clear and certain claim; 2) that the duty owed is ministerial and so plainly prescribed as to be free from doubt; and (3) that no other adequate remedy is available. In this case court held that USCIS had a nondiscretionary duty to adjudicate an Adjustment of Status I-485 Application within reasonable time.

In Labaneya v. USCIS, 965 F.Supp.2d 823 (E.D. Mich. 2013) the court reasoned that although USCIS’s discretion encompasses the entire AOS process including the pace of adjudication, USCIS has a duty to adjudicate an application and they must to explain a 4-year delay in deciding an Adjustment of Status I-485 Application.

On the other hand §336(b) of Immigration and Nationality Act provides another statutory ground for remedy before the Federal District Court for pending Naturalization N-400 Applications: If no decision is made after 120 day passes from the interview, the applicant may apply to the United States district court. Such court has jurisdiction over the matter and may either determine the matter or remand the matter, with appropriate instructions, to the Service to determine the matter.

In our experience, a lawsuit at the Federal District for a pending Naturalization N-400 matter has a very high chance of success. This is when a an N-400 Case is pending before the USCIS and no decision is made even though 120 days passed after the interview.

If you have a pending immigration matter and would like to find out if you can file a lawsuit at the Federal District Court, please do not hesitate to contact us to schedule a consultation.

Naturalization Process - How long does it take?

How long is the naturalization process in New York and New Jersey?

Unfortunately, answer to this question is “it depends”. Whenever my clients ask me questions involving “when” and “how long”, the answer is almost never specific. ( naturalization process ) Well there is a reason for that. It’s not like I enjoy torturing my clients with unpredictability.

The reason is the unpredictable nature of administrative proceedings. Meaning “it’s not me, it’s them”. Almost everything with immigration is an administrative proceeding. Every form filed before USCIS, even immigration court proceedings are administrative in nature. As the saying goes “When there is governing, there is bureaucracy” (By the way I just made that up).

Naturalization process starts with a petition before USCIS. As USCIS procedures are named after the form that is being filed, naturalization is usually called N-400 application. N-400 is the form to apply for naturalization.

USCIS conducts an interview and determines an applicant’s eligibility [1] for citizenship. If USCIS finds the applicant eligible, the N-400 application is approved and the applicant is scheduled to attend a naturalization ceremony to take the oath of allegiance [2].

That’s pretty straight forward, right? I can hear you asking “ok, but how long does this process of naturalization take?” The answer depends first and foremost on where you live. Which USCIS Field Office will process your application and interview you is determined according to your address.

As of the date of this article, the processing time of a N-400 application at the USCIS Newark Field Office is 9 to 15 months. For the USCIS New York City Field Office it is 13.5 to 25.5 months. I know this may seem somewhat predictable. Unfortunately that is not the case. Because naturalization applicants do not complete their interviews within these time frames.

Processing times announced by the USCIS [3], reflect the time frame in which an application will be processed. This means that naturalization applicants before USCIS Newark Field Office will get their interview date within 9 to 15 months or within 13.5 to 25.5 months before USCIS New York City Field Office.

Your next question could be “How much does the naturalization process cost?” As of the date of this post, the filing fee for N-400 Application for Naturalization is $640.

If you’d like to find out if you are eligible to file for citizenship, please do not hesitate to contact us to schedule a consultation.

Don’t forget your immigration adventure is only complete when you become a U.S. citizen.

Acquisition of US Citizenship - Immigration Relief

Common Forms of Immigration Relief if you are (or about to be) Out of Status

Immigration Relief – Acquisition or Derivation of U.S. Citizenship: If the answer to any question is yes, you could be a U.S. citizen or national:

  • Were you born in the United States or its territories? or;
  • At time of your birth abroad, did you have a U.S. citizen parent or grandparent? or,
  • Before the age of 18, in either order: did you become a legal permanent resident (green card holder), and did one of your parents naturalize to U.S. citizenship? Or, were you adopted by a U.S. citizen before the age of 16 and became an legal permanent resident (green card holder) before the age 18?

Family Sponsorship

If your parent, spouse, child or sibling is a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident (green card holder), he or she could petition for you. When this petition is approved, if you are in status (or you were inspected and admitted and it’s an immediate category) you may be able to file for adjustment of status and get your green card without leaving the U.S.

As an alternative you may leave the U.S. and get your permanent residence through consular processing (applying and obtaining an immigrant visa at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy).

Asylum

If you were harmed in or you fear that you will be harmed upon return to your home country (persecution) you might be eligible for asylum or withholding of removal (or relief under Convention Against Torture if you fear torture). Persecution must be based on five protected grounds: Race, Religion, Nationality, Political Opinion or Membership in a Particular Social Group.

Cancellation of Removal for Non-Permanent Residents

If you are in removal proceedings and meeting the following criteria you may qualify for cancellation of removal:

  1. You have been physically present in the United States continuously for at least ten years;
  2. You had good moral character for ten years;
  3. You have not been convicted of certain offenses [crimes listed in INA sections 212(a)(2), 237(a)(2), or 237(a)(3)];
  4. Your deportation cause exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to your green card holder or U.S. citizen spouse, child, or parent.

One type of issue is legal immigration, which refers to the process of coming to a country with the intention of permanently living there. This can be done through naturalization, which is the process of becoming a citizen, or through obtaining a green card, which grants permanent residency status.

history and government. If you meet all of these requirements, you can begin the naturalization process by filing an application with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
