For many months it has been expected that the administration would issue a rule redefining what it means to be a "public charge" for purposes of deciding which immigrants should be allowed to enter or stay in the United States. An UNOFFICIAL version of the proposed rule was finally released on September 22 with a press release from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It is considered "unofficial" because it has not yet been published in the Federal Register. In the coming days it will be available for public inspection online, and will be published in the Federal Register within about a week thereafter. At that point, a 60-day public-comment period will begin. An explanation of the proposed rule can be found in the September 26 Washington Update and in the materials below: NEW: While We Await Official Notice of Proposed Public Rules Changes, Here are Our Thoughts on Latest Version (Blog of the Georgetown Center on Children and Families, 9/28/18)
