As an update to previous entries, the Office of Management and Budget has posted the conclusion of DHS/USCIS Public Charge Rule review:
Department of Homeland Security
|AGENCY: DHS-USCIS||RIN: 1615-AA22||Status: Concluded|
|TITLE: Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds|
|STAGE: Final Rule||ECONOMICALLY SIGNIFICANT: Yes|
|RECEIVED DATE: 07/12/2019||LEGAL DEADLINE: None|
|** COMPLETED: 07/31/2019||COMPLETED ACTION: Consistent with Change|
As further previously reported on this blog, the Department of Justice awaits conclusion of OMB review of the rule as to certain matters under its jurisdiction, but today’s action moves DHS closer to issuance of a final Public Charge rule. This proposed rule is highly controversial and is expected to generate opposition upon issuance.
