    Fourth Circuit: Trump Admin. Can Enforce Public Charge Rule

    Fourth Circuit: Trump Admin. Can Enforce Public Charge Rule











    Thu, AUG 6th 2020 @ 2:55 pm EDT



    The Immigration and Nationality Act says that any alien who is “likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible,” the court said.

    The new Department of Homeland Security rule, which defines “public charge” in a manner that is expected to restrict the number of immigrants legally admitted to the U.S., likely is a permissible interpretation of that provision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit said.

    The decision reversed a lower court order that had blocked the rule’s enforcement nationwide pending a decision on the rule’s legality. It sent the case back to the trial court for a decision on the merits.

    The decision creates a circuit split. It came one day after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld an order stopping the rule from taking effect in New York, Connecticut, and Vermont. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ordered the agency to stop enforcing the rule in the Chicago area in June.

    The defendants, two DACA recipients, who put off applying for public financial assistance—including student loans—for fear they would be deemed public charges, didn’t show they were likely to succeed on a claim that agency acted improperly in adopting the rule, the Fourth Circuit said in overturning the injunction.

    Congress gave the executive branch the power to define and implement the INA and its provisions while “assiduously” resisting giving terms like “public charge” a fixed and definite meaning, the court said. Courts shouldn’t step in and do so, given the executive branch’s authority over immigration, it said.

    And, while the definition of “public charge” has changed over time, there was nothing to say the agency’s 2019 interpretation was entirely wrong, the court said.
    The U.S. Supreme Court let the new rule take effect in January, blocking lower court injunctions against it. In April, the justices refused to halt the policy because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
