Reversing the district court's grant of a nationwide preliminary injunction which enjoined new DHS rule broadening the definition of public charge for inadmissibility. The Court held that (1) CASA de Maryland lacked organizational standing but individual immigrant Plaintiffs had standing; (2) Plaintiffs were unlikely to succeed on the merits of their Administrative Procedure Act (APA) claim because DHS's definition of public charge was a permissible interpretation; (3) Plaintiffs failed to make the requisite showings for the additional preliminary injunction factors; and (4) a nationwide injunction was improper. Judge King dissented on all four rulings.

* This decision was vacated when the Court granted rehearing en banc on December 3, 2020. The appeal was later voluntarily dismissed. *
