NEW: Federal Judge Blocks Implementation of Trump's Public Charge Rule during COVID-19 Pandemic

Updated: Nov 3



On July 29, a federal judge in the Southern District of New York issued a nationwide injunction preventing the Trump administration from enforcing its controversial public charge rule during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Trump's public charge rule evaluates applicant's likelihood to become a "public charge" - or rely on public benefits in the future. To do this, USCIS looks at a variety of factory, including an applicant's history of accepting public benefirts, such as Medicaid, food stamps or public housing vouchers, as well as an applicant's financial status, including evidence of assets, debts and credit history.


Judge George Daniels of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York wrote that enforcing the public charge rule during the pandemic would cause irreparable harm to immigrants, their families and the public interest.
