Supreme Court temporarily clears "Public Charge" regulation

Update: On Friday, February 21, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the DHS public charge regulation — which institutes a wealth test in our immigration system — to take effect nationwide, by removing the last injunction standing in Illinois. The regulation is scheduled to take effect nationwide on Monday, February 24, 2020, while the litigation proceeds in the lower courts. The State Department’s parallel public charge regulation, which governs how the test is implemented abroad, is also set to go into effect on Monday.
