Friday, October 11, 2019, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York temporarily enjoined the implementation of USCIS’ Public Charge Regulation. This ruling prevents USCIS from implementing or requiring the use of any new forms that require responses to the information required by the Public Charge regulations. USCIS has not yet responded how it will proceed regarding implementation of the new forms it released Wednesday, October 9th, which require responses to the Public Charge regulations. The US Department of State just announced that its implementation of the regulation remains unchanged.
