On Oct. 11, 2019, New York Attorney General James secured a preliminary injunction to block the effective date of Trump’s changes to the public charge rule. Due to the successful injunction, the rule changes are NOT currently in effect. New Yorkers who have questions about the public charge rule should contact the Office for New Americans hotline at 1-800-566-7636 to receive more information.

For more information on public charge, please see the below fact sheet put together by the New York Immigration Coalition.
