WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 23rd February, 2021) The US Supreme Court on Monday agreed to review a Trump-era policy which denies permanent status to immigrants likely to use government benefits.
The court granted the petition for a writ of certiorari - which is a request to review a lower court case - regarding a legal dispute between the Department of Homeland Security and the states of New York, Connecticut and Vermont as well as immigrants' rights groups.
However, the "public charge" law is likely to be overturned by sitting US President Joe Biden.
