OMB Completes Review of DHS/USCIS Public Charge Rule

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


RIN: 1615-AA22

Status: Concluded

TITLE: Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds

STAGE: Final Rule


RECEIVED DATE: 07/12/2019


** 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.
