Issues: (1) Whether entities that are not subject to the public-charge ground of inadmissibility contained in 8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)(4)(A), and which seek to expand benefits usage by aliens who are potentially subject to that provision, are proper parties to challenge the final rule that an alien is “inadmissible” if, “in the opinion of the [Secretary of Homeland Security] at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, [the alien] is likely at any time to become a public charge”; and (2) whether the final rule is likely contrary to law or arbitrary and capricious.
