Judge Puts Halt to Trumps Racist Wealth Test, the Public Charge Immigration Rule Amid Covid-19 Pandemic
Brittany Tomas, attorney, Center for Constitution Rights

Federal Judge George Daniels issued two nationwide injunctions temporarily blocking the Trump Administrations public charge rules after attorneys successfully argued that the COVID-19 pandemic has made the public charge rules lethal to immigrant communities by chilling the use of healthcare and other benefits.

An injunction issued against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) prevents DHS from enforcing, applying, implementing, or treating as effective the public charge rule for any period during which there is a declared national health emergency in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Immigrants, oftentimes serving as essential workers combating the spread of the coronavirus need not make a Sophies Choice between accessing health care, food stamps and or other public benefits or their applications for visas. Judge Daniels ruling effects the lives of millions of hardworking immigrants and their access to social services.
