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.

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”.

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 .

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 !!

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.
