NY challenges latest Trump immigration rule

New York Attorney General Letitia James on Tuesday said the state, along with Connecticut and Vermont, filed a lawsuit to challenge a Trump administration rule that would deny or revoke visas for legal immigrants who might become a 'public charge' because they fail to make enough money or they receive or might in the future receive public assistance.

NY challenges latest Trump immigration rule

New York, Connecticut and Vermont will file a lawsuit against the Trump administration over its attempt to curtail legal immigration.

The Trump administration's 'public charge rule' would deny or revoke visas for legal immigrants who might become a public charge because they fail to make enough money or because they receive or might in the future receive public assistance such as welfare, food stamps or public housing.

Some experts say the rule could cut legal immigration in half.

"This new rule would effectively exclude from entry into the United States millions of black and brown, low income immigrants, many of whom are on their way to build stable and more prosperous lives," James said.

Four states led by California plus the District of Columbia announced similar lawsuits last week.
