Washington – In its most recentthe Trump administration announced on Friday to reject visa applications from immigrants, of which the government states that they can not pay for health insurance or insurance coverage Healthcare costs in the US The new provision is scheduled to enter into force on 3 November.
In a late-night proclamation signed by President Trump, the White House said the government would accept immigration visa applications filed abroad only if the applicants prove it. If this is not possible, the petitioners would have to prove that they have financial control Have funds to pay "reasonably foreseeable medical costs" ̵
The injunction alleges that US hospitals and healthcare providers are not receiving reimbursement for treatment of uninsured people. "The costs associated with this care are passed on to the American people in the form of higher taxes, higher premiums and higher medical care fees," the contract says.
Under the Regulation, the new requirement does not apply to persons who already have an immigration visa, asylum seekers, refugees, children of US citizens living abroad or holders of special visas for Iraq and Afghan nationals who helped US forces in these countries.
"The government wants to reduce legal immigration, and in particular the legal immigration of low-skilled, low-paid immigrants, who are likely to have less health insurance," said Randy Capps. Director of US Program Research at the Nonpartisan Think Tank of the Migration Policy Institute.
In early summer, the government released the final version of a "19459006 Public Prosecution" Ordinance that would make it easier for the government to deny green cards and temporary visas for legal immigrants, which would bring public benefits such as food stamps and government subsidies Use apartments.
Capps told CBS News that Friday's proclamation regarding health-related restrictions on those who want to immigrate to the US will go "much further" than the public indictment. The Government hopes to achieve this through adoption An abrupt order of management that does not need to be confirmed before implementation – unlike the public fee system, which is expected to come into effect later this month.
"Without any public comment or regulatory process, (the president) will simply put that out there," Capp said. He said that the lack of a procedure for establishing rules for the change could be held accountable in court for the administration.
Capps said the proclamation does not provide a concrete path for visa applicants to prove that they will either take out health insurance or cover all medical costs in the US.
The order instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to set "standards and procedures". for US consular offices to determine if applicants meet the new requirements. The State Department did not respond immediately to questions about what steps the Authority might take to comply with the proclamation.
Immigration advocates quickly denounced the announcement, saying it was another attempt by the Trump administration to punish low-income immigrants.
The Trump administration today launched two more shameless attacks on low-income people and immigrants by proposing drastic cuts in life-saving food stamps and preventing immigrants from having access to health insurance – immigration visas, "he said Javier Valdés, co-director of immigrant lobbyist Make the Road, New York, in a statement.
In his ruling, Mr. Trump relied on the same provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act that his government announced to prohibit the travel ban against predominantly Muslim countries as well as a comprehensive asylum restriction for migrants who had crossed the border illegally between ports had used the entry.
