14 states file emergency SCOTUS motion to defend Trump’s ‘public charge’ rule

Since taking office, President Joe Biden has taken a series of steps to reverse Trump-era immigration policy, but with respect to at least one of those actions, his administration is facing notable pushback.

As Reuters reports, 14 Republican state attorneys general filed an emergency application Friday with the U.S. Supreme Court requesting permission to defend what is known as the “public charge” rule – an immigration policy implemented by former President Donald Trump – after the Biden administration signaled its unwillingness to do so.

The purpose of the public charge rule is to require prospective immigrants to demonstrate their ability to support themselves in a financial sense without relying on government welfare programs, and it was effectively reinstated by the Trump administration last February.

According to a press release issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) at the time, the rule requires officials to review factors such as a potential immigrant’s “age, health, family status, assets, resources, and financial status, education and skills, among others, in order to determine whether the alien is likely at any time to become a public charge.”

In early March, the Biden administration announced that it would no longer defend the Trump-era rule in pending legal challenges, including one before the U.S. Supreme Court, saying that doing so “is neither in the public interest nor an efficient use of limited government resources,” the Associated Press reported.

Days later, the administration took the step of formally rescinding the rule, with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas declaring, “Today, DHS closed the book on the public charge rule,” according to The Hill.

These events led the aforementioned attorneys general, led by Texas AG Ken Paxton, to ask the Supreme Court to halt implementation of a federal court ruling from Illinois that negated enforcement of the rule on a nationwide basis and to allow the states to defend the policy amid the Biden administration’s unwillingness to do so, according to Reuters.

The attorneys general argue that the administration’s decision to abandon defense of the rule amounted to an attempt to sidestep the typically arduous process of undoing an existing federal regulation that impacts the states’ “important interests in conserving their Medicaid and related social-welfare budgets” among others, as The Epoch Times noted.

Biden’s unwillingness to defend a policy designed to foster self-sufficiency among new arrivals to the country is just the latest in a series of troubling indications that a massive influx of immigrants dependent on handouts from Democrats is not merely the unintended fallout from natural migration patterns, but rather has been the crux of the plan all along.

  1. Biden the mad man has to be stopped! By any legal means necessary. He is insane and all he is doing is creating chaos on the border and throughout the country.

    1. Biden is totally out of control with Obama as the devil sitting on his shoulder whusoering in his ear. They are alk crazy and commiting treason to the highest degree. It has to end now. Trump is the only obw we trust and other countries trust. MAGA. TRUMP!!!

      1. You are 100% correct. Biden and Obama should be lock up for life into Gitmo. Or better lets discuss execution of these traitors of America. Than lets start with the rest of the democrats which are all deadly.

          1. RAY,
            Only one of the Supreme Court Justices is a “turd” and a Big One….the Chief Justice!!!…He’s the one there is a tape/on file w/a wrong doing Roberts never wants shown. I’ll bet it’s in Soros’ pocket and that’s how and why Roberts ALWAYS SIDES W/THE DEMOCRATS ON “ANYTHING/EVERYTHING”!!! I learned this on a very different video of a question/answer discussion concerning Roberts and the sudden death of Justice Scalise a few years ago. (I think he took his own life; but don’t quote me on that). Came across the “discussion” quite by accident and once it began I couldn’t stop listening to it”.

        1. I agree , they should be hanged by the neck until dead , as is the general rule for treason , so it don’t happen again, but , in today’s world that would be considered extrem measures, I think , but , they should be put to busting Hugh lumps of rock to rebuild our roads at least . And made work on or infrastructure , because we will have to pay for their up keep either way , and I would like to enjoy the use of my money .

      1. God is about to clean “house” in America, starting with America’s House. God made it very clear that two leaders of “America’s House” would die on the same day, one in the morning and one in the evening. Hope it’s Biden and Pelosi that God is going to take out.

    2. Sir is Kenite Biden dems. club all wanting the 6th Trumpet to sound to bring back to Earth Kenities father to rule then selfs????

      1. carolynmarlin – I must be dumb, but in no way do I understand what you are trying to relay to us. Can you clarify??? Thank you,

    3. The media has to stop ling about his polls & numbers on his approval ratings , All Americans know exactly what has gone on . There are many towns & villages that have elections coming up . & they still play games. The Democratic party is not very popular for a very long time. Using their titles & their positions to get donations, & to create lies, to oust President Trump so they can cover up their Democratic party’s corruption will never work, past or present.

      1. What media. They showed by the idiot press meeting that they are so in love with anyone but President Trump. The softball and leading questions were so bad, everyone listening was yelling at the TV.

        Almighty God, hear our prayers.

    4. Unfortunately Biden is only the faceman for the One World Order group made up of the entire Democrat Party, the Russian Communists and the Chinese Communists with a few lesser midEastern countries thrown in for good measure.
      Biden is neither smart enough nor strong enough to think this stuff up by himself. He needs others to tell him what to do, how to do it and when to do it.
      The Democrats stage their fake “insurgencys” to draw attention and throw up a smoke screen while they abscond with more of our rights and freedoms under the guise of public safety and no one seems to care, especially the young people between the ages of 16 and 35 who are going to have to live in the cesspool that they creats.

    5. absolutely he should be made to walk the steps to airforce on a hundred times maybe that would knock some sense into that senile old casaba melon of his

    6. Pack up all the illegals and use air Guard to transport them and offload them in D. C. Then BILL the W.H.
      for transportation cost.
      An alternative would be to just put them back over the fence or thru the missing section of the fence. That would not make Mexico smile however they are part of the problem.

  2. Single Mom Makes $89,844/Yr in Her Spare Time on The Computer Without Selling Anything. you can bring from $5000-$8000 of extra income every month. working at home for 4 hours a day, and earning could be even bigger.

    The potential with this is endless…>>>>>> http://www.works91.com

  3. President Trump’s rule requiring ‘proof of self sufficiency financially’ is COMMON SENSE and it is a requirement of virtually every country on the planet for immigration. To invalidate this rule is IRRESPONSIBLE, ANTI-AMERICAN, AND RESULTS IN TOTAL SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO LEGAL RIGHT TO BE IN THE USA.

    TIME FOR ALL AMERICANS TO STEP UP AND DEMAND SOME COMMON SENSE.

      1. I totally agree with yall we have major problem no doubt bout it now we have to do everything we can start by talking to ur friends and family neighbors strangers spread the word get it out we can’t depend on our news media social media platforms ect we regroup use any and every way we can mail letters make calls make sure everyone hears our voices heard we will not continue the destruction of our country our family’s homes jobs period we demand biden administration out we also demand any other government person and or agencies whom has had any part n this mess out to be brought fourth fired charged with any and every criminal offense should be charged for whatever crimes against our country there abuse of power has put our country in danger threats to our life’s period either n sickness and or war 1thing we American people want peace we are all gods creation human beings we are all different outside without a doubt all the same inside we will contuine the stand for freedom and justices may god be with us all amen

  4. Biden can be impeached for China and Ukraine. Harris, and Pelousy can be impeached for aiding and abetting and inciting violence. The rest of congress can be impeached for inciting violence against the American CITIZENS.
    NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. Since my vote did not count, neither does my money.

    1. How about the FACT that the Constitution requires that at least ONE parent be a United States Citizen in order for a person to hole office as president or Vice President and Harris is the child of two illegal aliens, neither of which was a Citizen at the time of her birth, thus making her an illegal alien and NOT eligible to be President whould something happen to Sleepy Joe.

  5. Why should the STATES have to support these illegals. They did not ok them coming into their State.
    Send them to the Dem States. Let them support them. Red States KICK THEM OUT

    1. Shirley, Won’t work ! The dems in charge will just vote more money to the blue states to cover the costs. Face it ! You have lost control until the next elections.

  6. Biden should be impeached/thrown in jail…even if he is a puppet to Obama etcCommunism mustbe stopped!!!

  7. You people that voted for this senile demented old communist had better wake up while you have any freedoms and money left. This senile old moron needs to be impeached out of office immediately and his brothel queen sidekick with him. They are a danger to our freedoms and our country.

  8. AllBiden is thinking about is all the votes he will get from all the immigrants that he lets them to our country. I agree with with you he is a madman he doesn’t seem to care anything about the people already living here he just wants total power just like Pelosi. He better watch out though Pelosi’s dream is to end up in that President chair and she’ll do anything to get it

  9. Paul Revere spread the word about the enemy arriving in the middle of one night.
    Surely we can spread the word 24/7 to our brothers and sisters who still don’t get it. It’s up to us to inform them, gently but persistently. It’s what we can do, now.

    1. I’ve tried to spread the word to a few of them. It didn’t work though, and all I got was dirty looks, and one compared our President Trump to Adolf Hitler. I’d sure like to know where that idea came from? Hitler killed millions of Jewish people, and I haven’t heard of President Trump ever killing anyone… Some of these Democrats are pretty sick in the head, and nobody will ever change their minds about their beliefs either.

  10. The whole Dam Left Should Bee Put In Getmo prison And ThaT Illegal Obama Radical Sent back To Africa And never Let back i America.

  11. I have sad news folks! “YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID!” and unfortunately the current administration has exhibited their incompetence!

  12. Albiden is a racist communist joke of a human being! As go for the rest of the Dummycrats. WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO OUR COUNTRY. They are destroying America! Why are they doing this?

  13. Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

  14. I truly can’t believe that someone in our government isn’t trying to stop this mentally handicapped president in his tracks and say enough already all your doing is hurting the people of the country and not helping them

  15. I think the idea of having the illegals prove that they can take care of themselves while in this country is a good idea. Who can enact this policy?

  16. It’s time we take back our country. It breaks my heart to see what our young men and women have given to this great land and only to be forgotten by the Dems. The Dems want power at the cost of some others blood in a land far away. There are good folks here that never knew what war can do to a young mind or body. The Dems are selfish and full of hate and want nothing more than power/control. I went to Viet Nam twice 1966 & 1968 (Tiet offense) but it’s only now, I’ve learned what HATE is. I really don’t want to go to war again, but AMERICA’s is worth it !!

    1. Thanks for your service. War sad time and it is within our own country.Leadership stinks. nothing for the good of our great country.

  17. Mr Biden said it was in our best interest to let these illegal alien in. He must have gotten into Hunter’s stash. If he and his administration want to let them in. He and his administration need to open their bank accounts and pay for their upkeep. I don’t owe these illegal aliens anything. It’s not up to the citizens of this country to take of these aliens. We are not able to take care of our own citizens. Look at our homeless.

  18. There is a lot of DEMOCRATICS that need to be recalled, impeached ,get busy REPUBLICANS what the F CK are you waiting for just get it done look what JOE FRAUDEN ILLEGALMET PRESIDENT is doing TO THE COUNTRY!!!!

  19. Okay I wont call the Biden Administration what they really are if that is what it takes to get my comment posted. I will say then STAND UP AMERICA. Do not let the leftist intimidate you into not speaking out the truth. They (dems) work for us, not the opposite which they believe. LETS DEFEAT THEM BY WORD OF MOUTH AND AT THE VOTING BOOTH IN 2022.

  20. How are we going to fix this biden nonsense. Alot of dumb people believe everything biden, piglosi and the fake media put out. This country is doomed. We need to step up and stand together against this Marxist government.

  21. I have read all your comments and there was some really good ones but let me tell you good people GODIS NOT DEAD NOR IS HE ASLEEP HE IS STILL ON HIS THRONE HE WANTS US TO PRAY AND PRAY SOME MORE AND WRITE AND CALL AND PRAY SOME MORE IF WE WANT RESULTS THIS IS WHAT WE MUST DO ,AMERICA IS OUR COUNTRY WE MUST FIGHT FOR HER ,OUR FORFATHERS SHED THEIR BLOOD FOR THIS COUNTRY THE LEAST WE CAN DO FIGHT IN PRAYING AND WRITING AND CALLING -I AM AND OLD LADY I HAVE SEEN PRESIDENTS COME AND GO I LOVE PRESIDENT TRUMP BUT THIS PERSON THAT THINKS HE IS IN CHARGE , WELL THERE IS SOMETHING SINISTER ABOUT HIM ,I SEE DANGER FOR US AND PAIN ,HE IS TRYING TO UNDO EVERY GOOD THING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DONE FOR US PEOPLE WE MUST PRAY FOR OUR GOOD LORD TO INTERVINE AND WE MUST PRAY HARD I DO BELIEVE THAT GODIS NOT FINISHED WITH AMERICA YET SO PLEASE HAVE A LITTLE TALK WITH GOD ABOUT THIS MAN , THANK YOU ALL HAVE A NICE DAY

  22. BIDEN AND HIS ADMINISTRATION PLAN ON THE TAXPAYERS PAYING FOR THE ILLEGALS TO LIVE. WE ARE SUPPOSE TO GIVE THEM WHATEVER THEY NEED. THEY ARE FINALLY FIGHTING BACK! THANK GOD! THEY ARE ALSO FIGHTING BACK ABOUT THE PIPE THAT SAVES US AND WORKERS. BIDEN WAS DROPPED ON HIS HEAD TOO MANY TIMES AND IT SCRAMBLED HIS BRAINS. DON’T COUNT ON HIM DOING ANYTHING. HARRIS REFUSED TO GO HANDLE THE BORDER PROBLEM FOR BIDEN. SHE HASN’T DONE ANYTHING EXCEPT TALK ON THE PHONE WITH OTHER COUNTRIES. SHE WON’T DO ANY BETTER THAN BIDEN. THEY HAVE ALL LOST THEIR MARBLES AND DON’T KNOW WHERE!

  23. Obama is running this sh** show called the Biden administration! HE is the one controlling everything, with piglosi’s help! We need to vacate the speaker’s chair, remove Piglosi, kick her out of congress, out Kevin McCarthy in as speaker and bring articles of impeachment against Biden, Harris and Schumer. Then re instste the LEGAL president, President Donald Trump! That is the only way to stop this farce!

  24. While almost all Americans agree that this FRAUD that is constantly going on by the DEMOCRATS, nothing seems to be done to put an end to it ! ! ! ! They are breaking the law, but where is the enforcement ? They are destroying America. They are never punished for this . . . . They seem to be able to BUY their way out of any situation ! This is not the America that I remember from my childhood ! ! ! PLEASE . PLEASE CAN‘T ALL OF THE TRUE AMERICAN CITIZENS GET TOGETHER AND DEMAND THAT OUR LAWS BE UPHELD ! ! IF THEY FAIL TO DO THIS, AMERICA WILL NO LONGER EXIST ! ! ! ! EVEN THE SUPREME COURT IS NO LONGER DEFENDING THE AMERICAN CITIZENS AGAINST VOTER FRAUD ! ! ! ! ! ! CAN‘T SOMEONE HELP ? ? ? ?
