President Biden Moves to Reverse Trump-era Limits on Green Cards

The administration said the rule isn't in-line with the nation's values

While the proposal has no immediate impact, it is an important step toward undoing Trump's version of the "public charge" rule, as President Joe Biden promised during his campaign.
