PRESIDENTIAL PROCLAMATION THAT REQUIRES PROOF OF HEALTH INSURANCE IS HALTED
On November 2nd, the presidential proclamation that would require immigrant visa applicants to prove they have health insurance, has been haltered by U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon.
The proclamation would have kept potential permanent residents from entering the country unless they could prove to have enough resources to pay for medical care or unless they have health insurance within 30 days of entering the United States.
The restraining order is temporary and it stops the proclamation from becoming effective for 28 days. The ruling was expected to block nearly two-thirds of all prospective green-card holders.
