Lawsuit Filed against White House Blocking Stimulus Check for U.S. Citizens Married to Immigrants without Social Security Numbers

By April 28, 2020Covid 19

A lawsuit has been filed again President Trump over the federal government declining to make the $1200 stimulus checks to U.S. citizens who are married to immigrants without social security numbers and filed joint taxes in the most recent year. For more information on obtaining social security numbers, please click here. The IRS has said that only married couples who both hold valid social security numbers will receive the payments. This decision excludes approximately 1.2 million Americans. More information on the decision of the lawsuit will be provided after its heard in court.

Most immigrants and nonimmigrant visa holders are eligible for the stimulus check. As the stimulus bill specifically targets residents for tax purposes and does not have any immigration carve out or exclusions, we do not believe there will be any public charge implications to receiving this benefit. For more information, please click here.
