Abstract:
A wide variety of benefits, including Medicaid, food stamps, and school lunch programs, are provided by local governmental agencies with support by federal, state, and local funding. Questions often arise at the local level over whether these benefits and services may or must be denied to individuals who are not United States citizens. Moore explains how federal law categorizes noncitizens for purposes of benefit eligibility and then describes the legal rules for determining noncitizens eligibility for federal, state, and local benefits.

An anonymous Latina woman living in Chapel Hill and her harassment by Bedri Kulla is told to explain the rights that immigrants have in the US when they are victims of a crime. Even if an immigrant is undocumented and not a US citizen, if a crime has been committed against them, they are eligible for legal aid and cannot be deported.
