new proposed public charge rules in Eligibility Posted August 13, 2018 · Report reply My wife and I are green card holders since 2008. We are planning to apply for naturalization and are wondering how the current or new proposed rules for public charge determination would affect our application (https://www.migrationpolicy.org/research/chilling-effects-expected-public-charge-rule-impact-legal-immigrant-families). I had to use unemployment insurance in 2014 and we were on Medicaid for part of 2015. Could an adverse determination of the naturalization application affect our permanent resident status? Thanks in advance for your response!
