BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Truth Tabernacle will host an informational meeting to educate the community on "Public Charge".

By definition, a "public charge" is someone who depends on the government for their everyday living. Under immigration law a person who is deemed a public charge can be denied entry into the United States and/or be ineligible to become a lawful permanent resident.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on March 28 at Truth Tabernacle located at 214 Hosking Avenue in South Bakersfield.
