"Public Charge" Community Info Session

  • CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy 55 W 125th St, 7th floor New York, NY 10027 (map)

On September 22, 2018 the Trump Administration proposed changes in the "public charge" rules that would expand the discretion of the Office of Homeland Security to deny applications for green cards or certain types of visas based on an immigrant’s age, family size, income, and assets, as well as based on whether they have utilized certain cash or non-cash public benefits or programs they are legally entitled to use. Such a change could make life more difficult for New Yorkers who depend on and are eligible for many of our nation's public benefit programs.

Are you or someone you know concerned about the impact of this rule change? If so, then join us on November 9th at 6 pm for a community information session to learn the facts about the proposed changes to “public charge” from representatives of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs.
