US court ratifies ruling on immigration restrictions

A US court of appeals ratified on Wednesday the annulment of a rule that denies permanent residence to legal immigrants who use Medicaid, food stamps and other forms of public assistance. The second federal court of appeals upheld an October ruling by Judge George B. Daniels, but allowed it to be only used in New York, Vermont, and Connecticut, pursuant to a Supreme Court decision that allowed the rule took effect in February.

Under previous rules, people who used financial benefits, such as food stamps and Medicaid, were not penalized.

Congress still believes that the term applies to non-citizens with no chance of earning a living and lacks sufficient funds to ensure that public support will not be necessary.

The Department of Homeland Security thinks that it applies to anyone with access to any number of benefits for a limited number of months.
