Immigration News: Update on Public Charge Injunction

| Aug 13, 2020 | Firm News

On Wednesday, August 12, 2020, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals limited the nationwide injunction out of New York that blocked the Trump administration’s public charge rule. Previously on July 29, 2020, the New York federal court had temporarily stopped the implementation of the public charge rule that penalizes immigrant applicants for using public benefit programs like Medicaid and Food Stamps. In its ruling, the Second Circuit determined that the injunction would only remain in effect in New York, Connecticut, and Vermont.
