NHeLP Comments on DHS’ Affidavit of Support on Behalf of Immigrants Proposed Rule

Executive Summary

The National Health Law Program submited comments in response to proposed changes to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, “Affidavit of Support on Behalf of Immigrants.” NHeLP strongly opposed the proposed changes to the Affidavit of Support regulations. If implemented, the policy will increase costs, cause confusion, delays and fear, and ultimately deter sponsors from supporting family members’ path to a green card. This proposed policy clashes with our country’s commitment to supporting family reunification and supporting peoples’ path to lawful permanent residency and citizenship.
