USCIS Clarified the July 29, 2020 Injunction Against the Public Charge Rule Will be Respected

On July 31, 2020, USCIS posted a clarification to the July 29, 2020 ruling by the New York U.S. District Court blocking the Trump Administration’s public charge rule during the COVID-19 pandemic. The USCIS has now confirmed that it will not apply the public benefit condition to both immigrant and nonimmigrant applications and petitions and revert to the 1999 public charge guidance for the duration of the validity of the Court’s decision.
