Default Supreme Court stepping into fight over 'welfare' immigrants

In keeping with the Biden administration's open borders policy they have sought to overturn any restrictions on admitting or adjusting the status of immigrants likely to become welfare dependent, public charges. The policy impacts new immigrants as well as those applying for green card renewal.

Quote:
On Oct. 29, the Supreme Court*agreed to rule*on whether 14 states have standing to challenge President Biden's decision to rescind President Trump's regulation barring immigration to anyone who might end up on the public assistance rolls, known as the "public charge" rule.

The California-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled the states did not have standing, but that decision was appealed, and the high court decided to weigh in.*They probably will hear oral arguments late this month.

When the Biden administration*announced*that it would no longer enforce the Trump administration's public charge regulations on March 9, 2021, it stated that the regulations were unfair to individuals who "access health benefits and other government services available to them" and "was not in keeping with our nation's values
Previously only cash welfare benefits were used in determining public charge status. Welfare benefits like food stamps and medical care didnít count. The Trump administration not only implemented new rules counting all welfare benefits toward the determination, they created an objective standard of receiving benefits for 12 cumulative months in a 36 month period for determining if the immigrant is a public charge. Naturally the Biden administration rescinded the Trump rules preferring to revert to the most promiscuous standard saddling the taxpayers with the burden of supporting the Democrats imported underclass.

The article goes on to recount the history of the US legal effort to protect the country from importing public charges.

Seems reasonable.
Bear in mind though that those seeking asylum will be excluded from this law.

As for Texas' lawsuit One in five workers in Texas is an immigrant, so looks like there is a big conflict that these lawyers overlooked concerning the rights of businesses. In fact according to Texas business leaders, they need more immigrants not less.

Employers in Texas or anywhere else aren't clamoring for more welfare recipients, public charges. The top problem for small businesses under the Biden regime is a lack of workers due to Bidenís expansive welfare state which has created a bidding war between small businesses and the Federal government. Biden wants to add to the problem by encouraging Federal bureaucrats to renew green cards or admit welfare dependent legal immigrants.

The Trump rules for determining whether an immigrant should be considered a public charge require including non cash benefits such as food stamps and housing assistance as well as setting an objective standard of 12 cumulative months participation in a welfare program in a 36 month period.

Since taxpayers have to fund non cash welfare benefits shouldn't they count shouldn't they count towards determining if an immigrant is a public charge? Is objective criteria for determining an immigrant a public charge more or less consistent than a bureaucrats subjective judgement?
