Default Will severe Autism be a problem to immigrate to USA on F3?

I'm a british citizen (married f3 category). My US Citizen father filed I-130 in 2011 and my son was born in 2012.
My father had updated USCIS with all the required documents.

In 2015 my son was diagnosed with severe autism. He is nonverbal and attends special needs school.
I have been told that he can be refused visa/entery to US because of his learning disablity.

I know our visa is not due till 2022 , 2023 but I was wondering if anyone has same exprience and/or can share some
information regarding my situation?

Thanks.

Nobody really knows, there has been talk about Comprehensive Immigration reform which would include a greater focus on Public Charge but anybody's guess if anything actually happens.

If you can show you have the resources should not be an issue anyway.

It’s not autism, per se, that would be of concern. Any individual who is likely to become a public charge runs the risk of denial.

https://www.uscis.gov/greencard/public-charge

They take into consideration health costs and the likelihood of the person ever being able to work.

Seems like it all depends on my father's affidavit of support and the money I will be investing in USA.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi and welcome to BE.

I have moved the post and reply posted in the other thread into this thread and deleted the duplicate post. Please do not post duplicate posts as it becomes very confusing.

Seems to me that someone with severe autism who is unable to work is likely to become a pubic charge. It would be interesting to know how this one works out.
