Senate Passes Resolution to Address “Public Charge” Immigration Rule

The Senate has successfully passed a resolution aimed at halting a Biden administration immigration rule related to the “public charge” provision. The resolution received a vote of 50-47, with two Democratic senators, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana, crossing party lines. This resolution seeks to revert to the previous policy implemented during the Trump administration, which placed additional obstacles for immigrants seeking legal status while utilizing public benefits.

As a joint resolution, it must also pass in the House of Representatives before it can reach President Joe Biden’s desk for consideration. However, the House has yet to vote on the matter. If the resolution does pass both chambers of Congress, it is expected that the Biden administration would exercise a veto.
