Seventh Circuit denied an attempt by 14 states led by Texas to revive the Trump administration’s public charge policy, which penalizes immigrants for using certain public benefits, after the Biden administration decided not to defend it. The appellate court did not provide a reason for its decision, which followed an announcement from DHS that it would no longer support the rule in courts around the country. The policy had faced lawsuits and been temporarily barred by multiple courts while it was being litigated. The Ninth Circuit has yet to rule on the Arizona-led coalition’s motion to intervene on the same issue. Arizona has said in court filings that it plans to bring the policy to the Supreme Court.
