U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and lawful permanent residents of the U.S will not be required to provide tax returns, banking information and credit cards when signing an affidavit of support on behalf of intending immigrants.

This development comes after the Department of Homeland Security (DHL) on Friday, March 19, 2021, announced the withdrawal of the affidavit of support proposed rule.

The Affidavit of Support proposed rule, which was proposed on October 2, 2020, by the Trump administration, would have changed the evidentiary requirement of U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and lawful permanent residents wishing to sponsor an individual immigrating to the U.S.

According to the DHS, the withdrawal of the proposed rule is consistent with its to reduce barriers within the legal immigration system that placed increased burdens on American families wishing to sponsor individuals immigrating to the U.S.

Consistent with President Biden’s Executive Order (EO) 14012, Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans, DHS and USCIS are committed to eliminating barriers that prevent legal immigrants from accessing government services available to them.

DHS estimates that the withdrawn requirements would have placed new, costly burdens, estimated at $2.4 billion over the next decade, on U.S citizens, U.S nationals, and lawful permanent residents signing an affidavit of support on behalf of intending immigrants.
