The public charge rule sent many individuals into a panic when it was announced the rule would go into effect in February. Many had to unroll from healthcare and many children lost medical coverage because immigrants feared this could possibly cost them from being able to apply for their green cards in the future.
According to a recent article published by Immigration Impact, “The challengers argued that the public charge rule was deliberately aimed at Hispanic voters and immigrants—two groups the president has attacked in the past. The court will now hear more arguments on this issue”. However, due to the recent pandemic, that public charge has been put on hold for a second time. This is good, because now there is no need to submit the extra evidence that comes along with the submissions of the public charge rule.
