New Homeland Security Public Charge Rule Language Released

Donald Trump in El Paso last night.

The Department of Homeland Security released the language for the new public charge rule governing eligibility of immigrants for legal permanent resident status. The rule is over 800 pages long. It is expected to be formally published on Wednesday and to go into effect 60 days afterwards.

Because of its length, there are currently no analyses of the new rule available, but I expect to post on this later today.

It is sad that a new rule whose effect will be the reduction in the number of non-white immigrants, is being released just a week after the massacre in El Paso.
