The 4th Circuit lifted a lower court injunction against Trump’s expanded public charge rule on Monday. The rule expands what is considered a “public charge” for immigration purposes, encompassing a wide range of public benefits, like Medicaid and public housing vouchers, that were not considered before. The 9th Circuit similarly lifted an injunction, but a nationwide injunction out of New York remains in place, still blocking the policy from going into effect.
