Trump administration releases new 'public charge' rule making it easier to reject immigrants

ㅤ"The Trump administration on Monday released the final version of a controversial rule that dramatically increases the government’s ability to reject green cards for people who are deemed likely to depend on government aid such as food stamps, housing assistance and Medicaid.
ㅤThe new ‘public charge’ rule would link a subject’s immigration status to their income and their use of certain public programs.
ㅤPublished in the Federal Register, the rule will officially be released Wednesday and go into effect 60 days later."
