Expert: USCIS Likely to Appeal Public Charge Ruling

Bernie Pazanowski, Bloomberg, Nov. 2, 2020

"The Trump administration’s new public charge rule, which expanded the definition of immigrants who are inadmissible to the U.S. because of doubts they could be self-sustaining, has been struck down by a federal judge in Chicago. The rule violates the Administrative Procedure Act, meaning it must be vacated, Judge Gary Feinerman of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois said Monday. ... “The government is sure to appeal to the Seventh Circuit and try to get a stay of this decision even though the appellate court has already ruled the plaintiffs are likely to win,” said Stephen Yale-Loehr, a professor of immigration law practice at Cornell Law School."
