If the immigrant is unable to support themselves, and they receive medicaid, or any other type of welfare benefits, the Federal Government would have the right to come back to you and insist that you repay them for the benefits. This is a very serious issue, and should not be taken lightly. In my opinion, with your hesitancy, I think you have answered your own question.
The opinions expressed in this answer are meant for educational and public service purposes. Requesting general information about the law on a public website should never be a substitute for a personal consultation with an attorney who can give specific legal advice tailored to the facts of an individual case. Please be aware that Robert Hogan is licensed only in Texas and New Mexico, and that any opinions given are not meant to apply outside of these states.

I suggest that you speak with an immigration attorney before you sign anything. It is a big responsibility and you are entitled to understand what you are signing.

Absolutely NOT; an Affidavit must be made only with personal knowledge and not based on what someone else told you. To sign an affidavit when you do not have personal knowledge, especially to obtain immigration or any other governmental rights will certainly subject you to criminal charges. Run, do not walk, away from this
This comment does not create an attorney-client relationship. The law and its application by the courts is constantly evolving and changing. This discussion is not to be taken as a definitive guide, and should not be relied upon to determine all fact situations. Each set of facts must be examined separately with the current case and statutory law analyzed and applied accordingly.
