On Tuesday, the 2nd Circuit affirmed a lower court decision blocking the implementation of the expanded public charge rule. This version of the rule expanded the types of public assistance that could be considered negatively against a prospective immigrant. The injunction applies to three states: New York, Connecticut, and Vermont. This decision was unrelated to the current pandemic; a separate nationwide injunction, tied to current economic conditions, is also currently in place.
