LATEST UPDATE (July 31, 2020). On July 29th, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York issued a temporary injunction blocking the DHS Public Charge rule nationwide for the duration of the declared national emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The court also issued a nationwide preliminary injunction barring enforcement of the DOS Public Charge rule and the Health Insurance Proclamation indefinitely, beyond the national emergency related to the pandemic.
This means that the public charge rule is not currently in effect and cannot be enforced nationwide, so long as the injunctions remain in place.
