The US Department of Homeland Security said in a statement “ Continuing to defend the rule is neither in the public interest nor an efficient use of limit All the cases to which the justices had agreed to hear over the funding of portions of the wall along the border with Mexico and the policy of forcing asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their hearings at the request of government resources”.
Washington: A Trump’s era rule of denying green cards of immigrants who use the public benefits like food stamps blow was dealt fatal blows Tuesday after the Biden administration dropped legal challenges, including before the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court won’t weigh in on the legality of the so-called public charge rule because of an agreement by the Biden administration and the parties and states challenging it.
The latest outgrowth of the Biden Administration was the steps taken to undo the Trump administration immigration policies. The new administration dismissed the high court appeals on former president Donald Trump’s effort to deny funding to so-called sanctuary communities.
At the request of the Biden administration, the justices put off the cases they had agreed to hear over the funding of portions of the wall along the border with Mexico and the policy of forcing asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their hearings.
On 9th March Tuesday action in court about the public charge rule after years of complex legal battles in multiple states, the immigrant rights advocates celebrated this victory.
While on the other hand, the Trump administration coated the rule first proposed in 2018 as a way to ensure that only those who come to the U.S are self-sufficient. Immigrant rights advocates said it amounted to a “wealth test” and public health experts said it would lead to poorer health outcomes.
Aaron Reichin-Melnick with the American Immigration Councilil said, “ After four years of fighting the rule, from the first time it was officially announced, it is officially dead”.
The Trump administration filed a case last year and in late February, the high court had agreed to hear this case.
This policy includes denial of permanent residency status to immigrants because of their use of food stamps, housing vouchers, Medicaid, or other public benefits. The justices had agreed to hear this case even President Joe Biden called for a top to bottom review of this rule.
The Biden administration withdrew the case on Tuesday, saying that all parties agreed to dismiss the case.
