Public charge rule enjoined for now


On October 11, 2019,  the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York enjoined DHS and USCIS from "enforcing, applying, or treating as effective" the DHS public charge final rule. In addition, the court specifically enjoined the government from implementing the use of any new or updated forms whose submission would be required under the final rule, including Forms I-129, I-485, I-539, I-864, I-864EZ, I-944, and I-945.

DHS is expected to file an appeal on this case. It is expected that this final charge will come to pass and be effective in a near future with some amendment.  But USCIS and US embassy around the world are already implementing more strict measure on public charge inadmissibility.
