Alert from L.A. County following court action to block implementation of Final Public Charge Rule — October 22, 2019

Federal court judges in California and several other states have ordered that the Department of Homeland Security cannot implement and enforce the Final Rule on Public Charge Inadmissibility (Final Rule), which was set to go into effect on October 15, 2019. The court orders also postpone the effective date of the Final Rule until the cases are fully resolved, which could take months. This means that the current Public Charge Rule (without the recently adopted changes related to Medi-Cal, CalFresh, and federal housing programs, among other things) remains in effect until further notice.
