Trump’s Health Insurance Rule For Immigrants Blocked By Federal Judge

Published

on

A federal judge from the state of Oregon has blocked President Trump’s rule that requires immigrants to prove they will have health insurance or can pay the cost of their own medical care before they can receive visas.

U.S. District Judge Michael Simon put a stop to the directive which required applicants for a visa to have health insurance coverage within 30 days of coming into the country or to at least have funds available to cover the cost.

President Trump had issued a proclamation in early October requiring immigrants, seeking visas from abroad — not those in the U.S. already, applying for U.S. visas to prove they can afford health care. It didn’t affect lawful permanent residents. It didn’t apply to asylum-seekers, refugees or children.

Hospitals have spent more than $35 billion, or an average of $7 million per hospital, on “unreimbursed services” over the last 10 years, according to the White House.

Under the proposed rule, the required insurance can be purchased individually or provided by an employer, and it can be short-term coverage or catastrophic. Medicaid doesn’t count. And an immigrant will not be able to obtain a visa if using ObamaCare subsidies when buying insurance.

“This decision is an important check on the Trump administration’s effort to rewrite our nation’s immigration and health care laws in violation of the boundaries set out in the Constitution,” said Esther Sung, an attorney with the Justice Action Center.

A nonprofit organization along with seven U.S. citizens filed a lawsuit to stop the rule from taking effect, stating that it would prevent two-thirds of all potential legal immigrants from gaining access to America.

The lawsuit went on to say that the Trump rule would drastically reduce or possibly eliminate the number of immigrants who come into the U.S. with a family-sponsored visa.

A study completed by the Migration Policy Institute says that 57 percent of immigrants had private health insurance in 2017, compared to the 69 percent of U.S. born and 30 percent had public health insurance coverage compared with 36 percent of those who are native-born.

The rate of uninsured immigrants dropped from 32 percent to 20 percent from 2013 to 2017 with the implementation of Obamacare.

Watch: Bernie Supporters Intimidate & Harass Dem Candidate, Swarm Her Car – ‘Block Her In’

Just brutal!

Bernie Sanders supporters are the kindest, most gracious human beings on the face of the planet – said nobody ever. Time and again, these people have shown that they are dangerous. Here’s just the latest example of their extremism, via Washington Examiner: A group of Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters attempted to intimidate an Illinois Democratic congressional candidate into supporting the socialist’s agenda. The Vermont senator’s supporters on Monday live-streamed their activity on social media while Betsy Dirksen Londrigan concluded a campaign appearance in Champaign, Illinois. Following the event, the group challenged Londrigan to debate Illinois socialist candidate Stefanie Smith. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVlw_z05lzY&feature=emb_logo Sanders supporters are low-information voters. Who’da thunk? From Daily Wire: It turns out, the less you pay attention to politics, the more likely you are to support the socialist option for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has jumped between 5 and 6 points in the polls since Biden entered the race.

He makes it clear that he’s a full-on socialist and he’s not ashamed of it – for whatever reason. If president, the 2020 hopeful says private insurance companies will go bye-bye and you will certainly pay more in taxes. Bernie noted, “What Medicare For All does is it eliminates your private health insurance…premiums. You’re not going to be paying that. You’re not going to be paying co-payments. You’re not going to be paying deductibles. …Will you be paying more in taxes? Yes you…

New Rasmussen Poll Shows Trump Beating Bernie By 7 Points In Head-to-Head Matchup

Great news for the country…

For America to keep on winning, President Trump must remain in office. If implemented, Bernie Sanders’ policies would wreak havoc on the United States in what would most likely be an unprecedented fashion. Based on a new poll from Rasmussen, conservatives’ fears can subside for now. Trump beats Bernie head-to-head. Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart: President Trump beats Democrat-Socialist Bernie Sanders by 50 percent to 43 percent, according to a poll released Wednesday by Rasmussen Reports. Rasmussen, one of the most accurate pollsters of the 2016 presidential election, surveyed 1,000 likely voters February 24-25. This poll has a margin of error of 3 points. Trump will need every single vote he can get next November. That goes without saying, obviously. But it’s even more true when Hollywood and the mainstream media continues to campaign hard against him. Two major polls from November 2019 have released some stats that will have Democrats retreating to their safe spaces like nobody’s business. It isn’t just good news for Trump, it’s great news for Trump. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1198652943534301186 https://twitter.com/Rasmussen_Poll/status/1198300483263369229?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1198300483263369229&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F11%2Fhuge-black-support-for-president-donald-trump-hits-34-in-both-emerson-and-rasmussen-polls%2F This quick example should show every Democrat why it’s not okay to support the Democrat Socialist senator from Vermont in 2020.
