    This is going to be a big one, if it is issued. The clear intent is to remove nonimmigrants and immigrants who have accepted public assistance in the past. There will be a lot of litigation if this gets issued, so don't expect to see a resolution soon.

    Hi Ron,

    Does a GC holder claiming unemployment wages comes under "Accepting Public Assistance"?

    Good question. Aren't we paying unemployment insurance ("UI") which is shown in our payslip? So what would it be considered?

    Thanks

    Will it also include - Medicare / Medicaid.. Assistance programs.. ? are illegally present criminals allowed to have access to the welfare if they end up having US citizen kids?

    No, that is not public assistance.

    It does include Medicaid, but only applies to foreign nationals, not their U.S. citizen children.
