Changes to Public Charge Take Effect



From the Department of Children, Youth & Families

Filling in an application form for immigration.

The State of Washington is aware of the Trump Administration’s changes to the “public charge” test that may impact immigrants’ applications for visas, permanent residency or admission to the U.S. if they receive certain public benefits.

The U.S. Supreme Court has allowed the changes to be implemented and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will implement the new rule on February 24, 2020.

Visit the Department of Children, Youth & Families website for more information about these changes and how they may affect families of children with disabilities.
