The U.S. Supreme Court allows "Public Charge" Rule to Continue

A divided U.S. Supreme Court lifted an injunction against the implementation of Trump Administration's "Public Charge" rule in a 5-4 decision. In effect, the government is temporarily allowed to apply the public charge rule in adjudicating immigrant visa petitions filed by foreign nationals, pending final decisions by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and, possibly, the U.S. Supreme Court on the merits of the rule. 

For a summary of the public charge rule, click here.  The rule affects individuals who have received public benefits and those who are less educated, in poor health, and otherwise  have limited financial resources.
