Judges from a Manhattan-based appeals court on Monday challenged the Trump administration’s rationale for a new rule that would make it easier for the federal government to deny legal status to immigrants who apply for public assistance.

Under the new definition, immigrants who receive one or more designated public benefits, such as Medicaid, food stamps and housing subsidies, would be more likely to be deemed a public charge and refused status. New York state and immigrant rights groups last year sued to halt the rule from taking effect , arguing in separate lawsuits that the change unfairly targeted racial minorities, who could be exposed to irreparable harm if it was allowed to be enforced.
