DHS 공정하고 인도적인 공적부조 규정안 발표

발표 일시 : 2022/09/08 워싱턴  – 미국 국토안보부 (DHS)는 이민거부사유의 공적부조 심사를 DHS에서 어떻게 집행하는지와 관련해 비시민권자들에게 분명하고 일관성있는 정보를 제공하는 공적부조 규정 최종안을 연방정부 공보에 고시했다. 이번 규정은 이전 정부에서 메디케이드와 영양지원 프로그램 등의 보조 의료혜택까지 공적부조 기각 요건으로 간주하기 전까지 수십년간 이어져 온 원래의 ‘공적부조’를 회복시킨 것이다. 이날 새 규정 발표는 바이든 행정부의 우리 합법적 이민 시스템에 대한 신뢰회복을 위한 헌신을 잘 말해준다. “이번 조치는 합법적인 이민자들과 미국 시민인 그들의 가족들에게 공정하고 인도적인 대우를 보장하는 것”이라고 알레한드로 마요르카스 국토안보부 장관은 말했다. “미국의 기본적 가치관에 따라, 우리는 의료혜택 및 기타 정부보조 혜택 대상을 제한시킴으로 개인에게 불이익을 주지 않을 것이다".

国土安全部发布公平人道的公共负担规则

发布日期 : 2022年9月8日  华盛顿 - 美国国土安全部(DHS)已经公布了一项将在《联邦公报》上发布的最终规则,该规则为非公民明确且一致地说明了有关DHS将如何管理公共负担原因的禁止入境。该规则恢复了直到上届政府开始将Medicaid和营养援助等补充公共卫生福利纳入公共负担原因的禁止入境考虑前数十年来对“公共负担”的历史理解。今天宣布的规则表明拜登政府正在致力于恢复对我们合法移民系统的信心。 “这一行动确保了合法移民及其美国公民家庭成员的公平人道待遇。” 国土安全部部长 Alejandro N. Mayorkas说道,“我们不会惩罚任何选择获得健康福利和其他补充性政府服务的个人,这么做符合美国的基本价值观。” “根据我国价值观,这项政策就是以公平、尊重的态度对待我们服务的所有人,”美国公民和移民服务局局Ur M. Jaddou说道,“尽管我们还要开展许多工作才能克服重重困惑和担忧,但我们将继续努力打破移民系统中的障碍,恢复对我们移民社区的信心和信任,消除申请过程中的过多负担。” 《移民和国籍法》(INA)第212(a)(4)条规定,如果非公民“随时有可能成为公共负担”,则将被禁止入境。

USCIS Resumes Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program Operations

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is resuming operations under the Cuban Family Reunification Parole (CFRP) program, beginning with pending CFRP program applications. USCIS has begun to mail interview notices to CFRP program petitioners with instructions for the beneficiary interview. On Aug. 18, USCIS began conducting interviews at the U.S. Embassy Havana. USCIS has limited capacity to conduct interviews at this time, so beneficiaries should not take any steps to prepare for an interview until their petitioner receives an interview notice. In addition, USCIS is sending out general information about the resumption of the program to petitioners with pending CFRP program applications. USCIS is not issuing new invitation letters at this time. We will update our website and make public announcements when the next round of CFRP program invitation notices is issued. A petitioner who previously filed a CFRP program application that is still pending should not file another application. If you are a petitioner with a pending CFRP program application, please ensure that both USCIS and the Department of State’s National Visa Center have your current mailing address. To update your address with USCIS, please use our online change of address tool. Contact the National Visa Center by submitting a Public Inquiry Form online. As USCIS resumes CFRP program interviews, we will not email or call you to ask for money or payment of fees. Do not become the victim of an immigration scam. Visit the Avoid Scams page for information and resources. The CFRP program was established in 2007 to provide a safe, orderly pathway to the United States for certain Cuban beneficiaries of approved family-based immigrant petitions. The program allows certain eligible U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who receive an invitation letter to apply for parole for their family members in Cuba. If USCIS approves these family members for parole, they may come to the United States before their immigrant visa priority dates become current. CFRP processing was suspended due to the significant drawdown in U.S. government personnel from U.S. Embassy Havana for security reasons in 2017 and the closure of the USCIS field office in Havana in 2018.
