New York Attorney General Letitia James on Tuesday said the state is suing the Trump administration over its "public charge" immigration rule.
Thirteen states, led by Washington Attorney General Robert Ferguson, also filed a lawsuit last Wednesday for the rule that would deny entry or green cards to legal immigrants based on their use of public benefits such as food stamps, housing assistance and Medicaid. A separate lawsuit was filed by the state of California on Friday.
The suit is joined by the city of New York, Connecticut and Vermont and was filed in the Southern District of New York, challenging the Trump administration's attempt to target immigrants of color.
"The Trump Administration's thinly veiled efforts to only allow those who meet their narrow ethnic, racial and economic criteria to enter our nation is a clear violation of our laws and our values," James said in a news release. "Under this rule, more children will go hungry, more families will go without medical care and more people will be living in the shadows and on the streets."
In the suit, the coalition argues that the Department of Homeland Security's public charge definition "disregards clear congressional intent" and "weaponizes" the public charge inquiry to specifically target immigrants of color, immigrants with disabilities and low-income immigrants, according to the press release.
Wealth, education, age and English proficiency will also factor in determining whether someone is granted a green card or U.S. citizenship, according to the fact sheet, which can disproportionately impact low-income immigrants.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
