Trump now makes it harder for Immigrants to get Green Cards and deny citizenship to those who “can’t support themselves”

Published

on

The Trump administration has announced new policy that makes it tougher for legal immigrants in the United States to obtain permanent residency or citizenship.

In a policy titled “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” that appeared Monday on the Federal Register, the administration says immigrants who use public benefits such as food stamps, Medicaid, or public housing will be considered a “public charge”. Becoming a pubic charge or likely to become a pubic charge is grounds to be denied a green card.

“Through the public charge rule, President Trump’s administration is reinforcing the ideals of self-sufficiency and personal responsibility, ensuring that immigrants are able to support themselves and become successful here in America,” Acting director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Ken Cuccinelli said at a White House briefing on Monday.

Analysts say the new move could dramatically reduce family-based legal immigration from Mexico, Central America and Africa, where intending green card holders are economically disadvantaged.

Under US law, only US citizens and legal permanent residents who have had their green cards for at least five years are eligible to apply for federal public benefits.

You can easily migrate to and work in the US if you have these extraordinary abilities

Published

on

US Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a new section in the USCIS Policy Manual relating to the O nonimmigrant classifications. O-1 nonimmigrant status is available for aliens of “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, arts, business, education, and athletics, and aliens with a record of “extraordinary achievement” in the motion picture or television industry, who are coming to the United States temporarily to work in their area of ability or achievement. O-2 nonimmigrant status is available for essential support personnel coming solely to assist an O-1 artist or athlete.

The new section expands guidance on evaluating O-1 eligibility, including how officers determine if the petitioner has satisfied the evidentiary criteria and established that the beneficiary has extraordinary ability or extraordinary achievement, as applicable. It also clarifies when a petitioner may rely upon “comparable evidence” to meet the requirements for certain O-1 beneficiaries.

USCIS is also incorporating existing guidance relating to certain nonimmigrant athletes, coaches and entertainers (otherwise known as the P-1, P-2, and P-3 nonimmigrant classifications), and their essential support personnel into the Policy Manual.

For more information, see the USCIS Policy Manual.
