Public Charge

Did you know there has been no change to the law regarding public charge? Check out ILRCs Public Charge cheat sheet. Public charge is a concept in immigration law that often deters immigrants from accessing critical public benefits and services.

This resource gives services providers a quick overview of what public charge is, who it does and does not impact, what benefits impact public charge, and where to refer people for immigration help.

 

KYR Red Cards

All people in the United States, regardless of immigration status, have certain rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution. The ILRC’s Red Cards help people assert their rights and defend themselves in many situations, such as when ICE agents go to a home.

Cards available in Arabic, Spanish, English, Chinese, Hmong, Korean, and Vietnamese.

This booklet can be utilized by parents seeking to create emergency plans for their children in the event they are deported. Caregiver's Authorization Affidavit and Authorization to Travel with Minor Children(s) is included.
