Transcript (Transcripción):

Andres Mejer: Good morning. Welcome to the English portion of our weekly radio show Para Ser Legal. To Be Legal, today we’re talking about what is what is what is it mean to be a public charge. What is it. Who will it impact. Will it affect you. Second we’re going to talk about when can the U.S. legally keep you out of the United States.

Andres Mejer: And third we’re going to give you two examples of immigrants that were inadmissible because they had orders of removal and how we help them stay in the United States and ultimately get their Green Card.

Andres Mejer: So public charge. What is it? First of all let me tell you what it’s not, not something new. The public charge has been around for 100 years since at least 1882. It’s been a policy for immigration for a very long time. Secondly, in January 2018 the rules for officials reviewing petitions for visas for people coming into the United States. This is typically the Department of State. That’s where somebody comes in and makes an interview and asks to enter the United States. So January 2018 they incorporated a review of these public charges. January 2019, Department of Homeland Security proposed the new rule, inadmissibility on public charge grounds, to include for include applications people inside the U.S. And those rules were announced. The final version just last week. And they go into effect October 15. Now 13 states have already filed lawsuits to stop it. There will be more organizations doing the same in the weeks and months to come. The idea a public charge comes from the thought of. I don’t want to pay for someone else to live here. These rules try to flesh out when you are paying for them and when they’re not. If you are worried that this may prevent you from obtaining or changing your immigration status please contact our office, 888 8 8 8 0 3 0 7, we can help you file your application before the proposed immigration rule goes into effect on October 15th.
