NC Justice Center:

“First, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) has announced that it will not conduct any immigration enforcement activities “at or near health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities, except in the most extraordinary of circumstances. Individuals should not avoid seeking medical care because they fear civil immigration enforcement.”

“Second, USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) has announced that it will not consider it negatively if an immigrant gets testing, treatment or preventative care for COVID-19, or coronavirus when considering whether an immigrant can be considered a “public charge.”  USCIS encourages all immigrants to seek out testing, treatment, and preventative care (including vaccines, if one becomes available) without any negative effect on a future green card application.”
