    The immediate focus that I’ve seen online is how this allows the government to use the “Public Charge” rule to deny entry to immigrants who cannot demonstrate that they can afford health insurance.

    The big picture, as far as I can tell, is that the Supreme Court is now saying to the District Courts: You can issue a stay for stuff that is within your district. You can no longer issue stays for districts that are not yours.

    Lawyer types, can you explain whether I’m reading this right?Report

      As an oceanographer I think your second point is spot on. I’m not familiar with the totality of the new Administrations regulations, but they appear to both shrink the period of time over which you would become a public charge and expand the services that would be assessed.

      If I have that right its gonna be another blow to the folks trying to come here legally to do all sorts of stuff Americans demonstrably don’t want to do, and in jobs that don’t normally carry benefits. Which mean sour homes are going to be more expensive to build and our crops will be more expensive to pick.Report

      I think (IANALAISHTCMHTNTBATLIAM) that it means no more location shopping. In other worlds, something can’t be happening in Texas and a judge in Minysoda rules on it, creating national chaos; dogs sleeping with cats, wet streets causing rain and so on.Report
