A group of applicants for lawful permanent residence, their sponsors, nonprofit immigration legal service providers, and immigrant and civil rights groups sued the Trump administration for violating the law in its implementation of the new public charge regulation, alleging that the USCIS guidance for implementing the regulation goes further than the regulation itself to exclude individuals who merit admission to the United States. The complaint was filed by lawyers from AILA, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC), Jenner & Block LLP, and Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP. AILA Director of Federal Litigation Jesse Bless said, “The administration took a discriminatory and terrible regulation … and made it even worse through the [USICS Policy Manual] and overreach for information included in the new Form I-944.”
