Immigration Lawyer in Houston Public Charge Rule Update

Posted on February 03, 2020 by Kathryn N. Karam

 

If you follow changes in immigration law and policy, you’ve been hearing a lot about the Department of Homeland Security’s “public charge rule," more scrutiny, and increased denials of applications.  If you’re worried, you’ve got reason to be. On Monday, January 27, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court granted the Trump administration’s request for a stay of the nationwide injunction against public charge rule. This decision clears the way for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)  to implement the rule in all 50 states except in Illinois, which has a statewide injunction of its own. As an immigration lawyer in Houston, the Public Charge Rule has been on my radar, here's some more information I put together for you.
