Inadmissibility and Deportability Based on Public Charge Rule

One of the most troublesome grounds of inadmissibility, creating a bar to immigrant and in some cases temporary visa holders entering the United States, is that known as "public charge." It basically means someone whose financial situation is on the margin, such that the person has had to, or might one day have to, rely on some form of government assistance. A similar problem is created for some people already in the U.S., who can become deportable for having become public charges.
