Fresh off a Supreme Court victory, the Trump administration has announced a launch date for its “public charge” rule concerning immigrants who use taxpayer-funded benefits.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the agency within the Department of Homeland Security that manages legal immigration, revealed in a late-night Thursday announcement the rollout date of its public charge rule: Feb. 24. The new rule takes into account a green card applicant’s past use of government services and could lead to the denial of permanent status for a large number of immigrants.

“Self-sufficiency is a core American value and has been part of immigration law for centuries,” Ken Cuccinelli, the acting DHS Deputy Secretary, said in a prepared statement. “President [Donald] Trump has called for long-standing immigration law to be enforced and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is delivering on this promise to the American people.”
“By requiring those seeking to come or stay in the United States to rely on their own resources, families and communities, we will encourage self-sufficiency, promote immigrant success and protect American taxpayers,” Cuccinelli continued.
