On September 11, 2020, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit issued a decision that allows DHS to resume implementing the Public Charge Ground of Inadmissibility final rule nationwide, including in New York, Connecticut and Vermont.
Therefore, USCIS will apply the public charge final rule to all applications and petitions postmarked on or after February 24, 2020.
USCIS will issue a Request for Evidence in all applications that were submitted without Form I-944, Declaration of Self-Sufficiency, during the injunction, which was issued during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
It is our suggested for people who filed their applications without Form I-944, Declaration of Self-Sufficiency, to start gathering the relevant documents and information in preparation for the Request for Evidence.
