I am from NJ.
I am a naturalized US citizen and right now in the process of petitioning my mother to bring her to US. In addition I would like apply for Charity care medical program for myself (I am eligible according the income limit).
The question is:
Can it influence somehow the petition process and they can refuse to let Mother come here? Does the Charity care program belong to "public charge" category?
Thank you for your advice.
