The Supreme Court on Friday denied a request to block the Trump administration's "public charge" rule during the coronavirus health crisis.
A group of state attorneys general had asked the court to issue an injunction against the rule, which links a migrant's eligibility for legal status with the likelihood that he or she will rely on public assistance.
The court had decided earlier this year to allow the rule to go into effect, but the group of state officials, led by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), had asked the justices to revisit the decision in light of the ongoing pandemic.
The court did not publish an opinion on its decision not to grant the request, nor did it publish a vote tally for the move.
But their order on Friday did leave open the possibility that the attorneys general could seek relief in the lower courts.
James said that she intends to file for an injunction with a federal district court, which had granted her initial motion before the outbreak.
The Supreme Courts order tonight allows us to continue the fight to halt the Public Charge Rule during the current public health crisis, and gives us the opportunity to make our case in a federal court in New York, James said in a statement. We will soon file an emergency motion in the Southern District of New York because our country cannot afford to wait. The Public Charge Rule threatens the publics health, our economy, and all New Yorker citizens and non-citizens alike. Every person who doesnt get the health coverage they need today risks infecting another person with the coronavirus tomorrow.
James, who was joined by her counterparts from Connecticut and Vermont and the corporation counsel for New York City, argued in her emergency motion

There is no pandemic exemption for the law of the land as in the Constitution. Just because of the pandemic situation the states AGs re-submit what they’ve already been spanked on? You have to be kidding me. What legal system framework are they operating in (their warped minds).
Its funny how the Democrats response during a crisis is to hamstring the WH. That goodness for common sense judges
That’s what I thought ... WINNING.
Then I read, “gives us the opportunity to make our case in a federal court in New York” - and realized - that’s what they think is winning. ROFL
For all of the BS judges bring upon America,this is why they are very important. I wish we had more good judge news.
MOAR winning. And at the end of his second term, how many more good justices will be there? :-D Probably two more!
If I'm reading it right, the Supremes are telling them they're welcome to spin their wheels again--litigating (and no doubt winning) in the New York district a second time, and then coming back to the USSC to get smacked down again. While Trump's order continues uninterrupted.
I really hate these anti American vile people. Always trying to push their crap to destroy the country.
They can bring it back to court ... when the very last case of Covid-19 on the face of the earth has been resolved.
Or when the economy has recovered. Whichever happens first. :)
The vermin twist the headline so much I can’t figure out who won.
How about, burdening our citizens with having to pay for unproductive invaders from other countries is a threat to our economy and our public health, as scarce resources are diverted from citizens to non-citizen invaders?
I love my Donald!!!!
My filipina wife, (who is only one-year younger than me, if you can believe that!), will be a public charge when she receives her SSN. When that happens, she’ll be immediately on ChampVa health insurance (at taxpayers expense). On top of that, in 5 years, she’ll get railroad retirement when she turns 62. Getting her paperwork has been going on for 3 years now. I really thought she would be denied. But now she finally has recieved her travel and work permits. Still waiting on the SSN. I do not have hope on the public charge rule for every one else. Even though it will effect us.
The Supremes put the smack-down on Corpseburg's 2nd Circus Court of Schlemiels:
These three clowns were upholding a nation-wide injunction by a Rapin Bill "judge" for SDNY - George Daniels.
They all emerge from the Supremes woodshed with blistered arses.
Funny how you didn’t hear about this in the media. Winning MAGA
Funny how the only things Democrats can do at all is cause trouble and heartache for America. They are the worst of America.
