BREAKING NEWS: Public Charge Rule Enjoined

Published on 10/11/2019

Federal judges in New York, Washington, and California have issued nationwide injunctions against the Trump administration’s “public charge” rule, preventing the rule from taking effect on Oct. 15. The temporary injunction specifically enjoins the government from implementing the use of any new or updated forms whose submission would be required under the Final Rule that include questions pertaining to the public charge issue (Forms I-129, I-485, I-539, I-539A, I-864, I-864 EZ, I-912, I-944, and I-945).

Ryan Swanson attorneys published an article last November on the public charge rule.
