The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear Arizona’s case to revive a Trump-era rule to keep immigrants from naturalizing for using public benefits.

When oral arguments get scheduled before the high court could make them a factor in the 2022 Senate race.

The federal government’s legal defense of former President Trump’s public charge rule that denied green cards to immigrants for using food stamps was ditched by President Biden.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich took up Trump’s cause and led a group of states that have convinced the Supreme Court to take the case.

Brnovich has been campaigning on immigration while seeking the Republican nomination to run for Senate.

If he becomes the nominee, and if arguments on the public charge rule get scheduled near the start of the next Supreme Court term, Brnovich would get a chance to talk about immigration on a national stage during crunch time of the senate race.
