President Biden is reversing another Trump-era immigration policy.

The White House announced the reversal of the "public charge rule."

The rule imposed strict financial requirements that made it harder for lower-income migrants to get green cards and visas. 

The decision by President Biden comes just days after a group of Republican attorneys general launched an effort to keep the public charge rule in place.
