NY judge blocks Trump's immigration rule

A United States federal judge in New York temporarily blocked an immigration rule introduced by the administration of President Donald Trump which requires visa applicants to be "self-sufficient."

Judge George Daniels stated the "public charge" rule that would prevent anyone who applied or may in the future seek welfare, food stamps, public housing or even Medicaid is "repugnant to the American Dream."

The rule was first announced by the Trump administration in August and was set to come into effect next week, but has been put on hold nationwide following today's ruling.
