Court blocks Trump push to restrict green cards for welfare-tapping immigrants

A federal appeals court in New York Wednesday rejected a motion from the Trump administration that would have allowed it to implement a policy connecting the use of public benefits with whether immigrants could become permanent residents. The ’public charge’ rule unveiled last year would make it harder for immigrants who are poor or need government help to secure residency and stay in the country.

Public Charge law has been around forever and is perfectly reasonable. Its about not spending money we dont have and becoming a welfare state. Keep in mind this does not stop people in danger from seeking asylum.

Isn't this within his constitutional authority?

Isn't funny how Presidents (not just Trump) violate the Constitution with their war powers in a semi-routine basis and no judge does anything. However when the President does something like this, which is well within the authority of the President, then you get judges who intervene.

This will likely be appealed and overturned.
