The Biden administration replaced the Trump administration’s public charge rule.

This rule barred many prospective immigrants from using social services.

From The Hill:

The Biden administration on Friday moved forward to formally replace the Trump administration’s public charge rule, which barred many prospective immigrants from using social services.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a request for public comments on a new regulation to define how immigration officers can determine whether green card applicants are likely to become a public charge.

The move is the latest in a series of reforms that the Biden administration has taken to dismantle former President Trump’s immigration policies.

Among those policies, DHS under Trump tightened the definition of public charge so that immigration officers could reject applicants who had used, or could potentially use, services like food stamps.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is going to take on the Biden administration over this.

From Fox News:

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is gearing up for Supreme Court arguments next month over a Trump-era policy on immigrants receiving welfare that was dropped early last year by the Biden administration.

The Trump administration introduced the “public charge” rule in 2019 and sought to expand the definition of public charge, restricting legal immigrants deemed likely to be reliant on welfare from receiving permanent residency or green cards.

Specifically, it defined a public charge as an immigrant who receives one or more designated public benefits for more than 12 months within a 36-month period. The consideration would be made when someone on a temporary visa applied for a green card.

The Trump administration and Republican supporters said the rule protected taxpayers and prevented welfare programs from becoming stretched.

“The bottom line is, we know the public charge rule is a common-sense immigration policy that ensures our public emergency assistance programs are available when Americans need them the most,” Brnovich told Fox News in an interview.
