Judge blocks Trump immigration rule, calls it 'repugnant to American Dream'

Gov. Gavin Newsom speaks during a news conference with Attorney General Xavier Becerra at the California State Capitol on Aug. 16 2019 in Sacramento

"It is repugnant to the American Dream of the opportunity for prosperity and success through hard work and upward mobility", Daniel wrote. The administration also argues that safety-net programs are needed to aid US citizens and there is not enough money to provide additional benefits.

The Trump administration contended it sought to clear up a term that was used in USA immigration law since 1882. Officials would deem an immigrant a "public charge" and deny the application if they determine he or she is more likely than not to use one of the considered benefits for 12 months or longer over the span of three years. So I've had an excellent monitor file and proper now, inside a few weeks, we could have 160 judges."Immigrant rights advocacy teams and a number of other states argued that the brand new immigration rule conflicts with present immigration legal guidelines and would drive up the price of offering well being care and different companies to immigrants.Daniels blocked the rule following an August lawsuit filed by New York, Connecticut and Vermont and the town of New York, which alleged that the coverage particularly targets immigrants of colour".

The policy had been slated to take effect next week, but the judge's nationwide injunction prevents that.

Judge Rosanna M. Peterson of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington issued a similar injunction on the same day. He ruled that the Department of Homeland Security went beyond its authority under federal immigration law.

Asked about the ruling by reporters Friday, Trump cited a Supreme Court ruling a year ago upholding the final version of his travel ban and pointed to his success appointing judges to the courts. The district court's ruling came one week after President Donald Trump issued a proclamation saying his administration will suspend entry of immigrants who lack healthcare or can not prove they are able to pay for medical expenses.

According to one study, talk of the rule, along with confusion over which benefits will be consider, has prompted some immigrant families - including USA citizens - to avoid or drop food, medical and housing government benefits out of fear that enrollment would jeopardize immigration petitions filed by family members.

But a slew of state and organizations sued, saying the definition of public charge discriminated against the poor and others. "An objective judiciary will see that this rule lies squarely within long-held existing law".

The judge's decision represents yet another defeat in court for the White House and its concerted campaign to dramatically overhaul the nation's legal immigration system.

The rulings in California, New York and Washington came in quick succession four days before the new rules were set to take effect.

"The rule that this administration was proposing was a drastic deviation from the original intent of Congress", James said in a phone interview.

A study by the Urban Institute found that 1 in 7 adults in immigrant families avoided participating in a public benefit program in 2018 owing to fear of risking future green card status. Federal law dating to the 1880s allows immigration officials to deny visas or green cards to anyone "likely at any time to become a public charge", but the law has been revised multiple times. "It's a core principle - the American Dream itself - and it's one of the things that distinguishes us, and it's central to the legal history in the USA back into the 1800s".
