Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I can look for the law, but I can tell you without even seeing the law that this rumor is false.
SSI is based on disability, not minority status. And also, there is no way a law was passed giving inmates public assistance. I guarantee you that this is totally false.
But let me see if I can find the law.
I think you asked this question before (maybe last week) and I could not find any such laws then. I have used a pay seach site that lawyers use to search laws and cases. There is no such law with the numbers you have given.
The closest thing was PL 92-303 which correlates to a US Code section on miner's black lung benefits.
Prison legal rumors are rampant and 99.99% of the time they are confused.
