Trump Administration Wants Immigrant Sponsors To Provide Bank Information

The Trump administration is intending to require Americans who support their mates from outside the country and different family members for green cards to give their bank account information.

In a notification scheduled to be informed on the Federal Register on April tenth, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) plans to include an area in Form I-864, Form I-864A, and Form I-864EZ (Affidavit of Support) requiring the support to give details of their financial balance.

Additionally, USCIS plans to require that the Affidavit of Support forms be notarized, wants sponsors to provide information about Affidavits they have previously submitted, and “optionally submission of a credit report.”

USCIS says the proposed changes are meant “to better inform sponsors and household members of their support obligations and better ensure the support obligations”

USCIS further informs these changes are in accordance with the presidential memo released by President Donald Trump in May, 2019 requiring immigrants living in or intending to live in the US to be self-sufficient.

In the planned change document, USCIS announces that by submitting an Affidavit of Support, the sponsor creates a contract between the sponsor and the U.S. government that among other things holds the sponsor “liable for any reimbursement obligation incurred as a result of the sponsored immigrant receiving any means-tested public benefits.”

The prospective change will be released in the Federal Register for 30 days in orders for members of the public to make comments before it becomes effective.
