Trump announces immigrants will be denied visas if they can’t pay for health care

Trump is at it again with even more restrictions for immigrants. In a recent decision, the Trump administration announced that immigrant visas will be officially denied to those who cannot pay for healthcare.

The official proclamation will go into effect on November 3rd, in which consular officers will be allowed to bar immigrants seeking residence in the United States unless they “will be covered by approved health insurance” or can prove that they have “the financial resources to pay for reasonably foreseeable medical costs.”

Trump’s reasoning behind his new order claims that the decision is justified because legal immigrants are three times as likely as American citizens to lack health insurance, making them a burden on hospitals and taxpayers in the United States. 

The proclamation has reportedly been in development for several months, but it does not affect refugees, asylum seekers or students seeking to attend college in the United States, according a White House spokesperson.
