The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit lifted an injunction issued by a federal judge allowing the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) to resume public charge inadmissibility.

The most recent ruling has been part of intense ongoing litigation since DHS, under the direction of  the Trump Administration, started to dramatically expand the definition of “public charge”. Just days before the rule was scheduled to take effect in October 2019, a nationwide preliminary injunction was issued. Earlier this year, the United States Supreme Court upheld the rule allowing it to take effect before the rule was subjected to another preliminary injunction due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
