Pro Bono Briefing: Public Charge and Other Recent Policy Updates

Update: After this briefing was recorded there were two key developments on the public charge rule. On October 10, the Department of State issued a similar public charge rule for individuals applying for visas at U.S. consulates abroad. The DOS rule will take effect on October 15, 2019, but will not be implemented until relevant forms are published.  On October 11, three federal courts issued injunctions on the implementation of the new DHS public charge rule. Pending litigation on the merits, implementation of the public charge rule is enjoined nationwide, as it relates to applicants seeking to adjust their status to lawful permanent resident within the United States.

Tahirih’s Chief of Programs Rená Cutlip-Mason and Tahirih’s Litigation Counsel Richard Caldarone discuss the new public rule in detail, provide litigation and case law updates related to the asylum ban, Matter of A-B-, and Matter of L-E-A, and discuss a new Department of Justice regulation re-organizing and changing processes at the Board of Immigration Appeals.
