Trump’s public charge rules are coming to an end. On March 9, 2021, the Biden administration moved to dismiss its court case defending the 2019 public charge rule. As such, the federal courts’ prior dismissal and injunction of the rule will take effect. The Department of Homeland Security announced that once the 2019 public charge rule has been permanently vacated, public charge analysis will once again follow the 1999 interim filed guidance. Essentially, this means that the public charge rules will soon return to what they were before the Trump administration changes.

Health care programs, including Medicaid and COVID care, housing, food programs, and many other vital services are once again safe to use.

Additionally, many immigrants who were previously blocked from obtaining green cards due to public charge inadmissibility may now be able to move forward with their cases.
