[District court] blocks Trump administration 'public charge' rule targeting poor immigrants

The nationwide injunction from District Judge George Daniels in New York City halts the administration's attempt to REDEFINE what constitutes a "public charge," or immigrants who are, or who might become, OVERLY DEPENDENT on government assistance.

wut: PPACA "Individual Responsibility"
The scheduled enactment [sic] next week of the rule comes as the Trump administration last Friday announced another rule, a proclamation effective Nov. 3 that bars immigrants from coming to the United States unless they will be covered by health insurance within 30 days of entering or have the financial wherewithal to pay for any medical costs.

It's an ironic stance from a government that has repeatedly attacked the Affordable Care Act, which helps provide health insurance for millions of U.S. citizens.

* Ima tell y'all how I know the real dealio, the "deep dive". Being indigent, unlike bloviators polluting US 'policy analysis', I, a "natural born" US citizen burdened by a "privileged" education, have actually submitted applications for state 'public charge' (US HHS "benefits," formerly known as "welfare"). Filled diverse forms online and offline 2009-present. Shocking, I know. Even family members question my primary reports of "benefits" processing, because they prefer to trust "media". What is the matter with you people?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
