I thought these laws existed where you could not collect aid for a number of years! I guess states may have their own rules.
Your sponsor is responsible for all your expenses for the first 5 years. However, if you have a child who is an American citizen, he or she is entitled to public assistance. The same goes for illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants cannot collect benefits, but their American born children are entitled to all benefits.
Please tell Donald Trump and the lefty immigrant advocates this. Both scream as if its a new rule when in actual fact all they do is repeat what has been immigrant law, at least since the mid 80s when I got my green card. I had to prove that I was self sustaining.
