Public Charge Case Back From Supreme Court Before SDNY Judge Daniels 2 Hours On Web Alert

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 18 – The public charge case, New York State et al. versus US Department of Homeland Security, was on for a hearing on May 18 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge George B. Daniels.

   The first plaintiffs' speaker said COVID-19 shifts the balance of equities, with hospital(s) in Central Park. 

   Judge Daniels said, I issued an injunction, the Supreme Court stayed my injunction. You asked the Supreme Court to clarify. Their order was two and a half lines. You're not asking me to stay the Supreme Court order, are you?

   The plaintiffs' lawyer replied, DHS posted an alert, solely on their website, about immigrants getting testing and treatment. [Inner City Press tweeted the order here.]

   Another plaintiffs' lawyer argued that the Supreme Court's order meant it thinks Second Circuit might uphold the District Court's stay.    

Judge Daniels asked, Was that even argued before the Supreme Court? They determined you may have not yet the requirements for a stay.     Plaintiffs' counsel: The theme of defendants' motion to dismiss is that our organizations which have diverted resources don't have a way to be heard by your Honor. That can't be right.

   After a bathroom break for the court reporter, and two and a half hours, the arguments ended without a decision, as in another immigration case in the afternoon. This case is State of New York et al. v. US Department of Homeland Security, 19-cv-7777 (Daniels).
