At the beginning of October, the White House established a new policy to save America money. Migrants will no longer be able to obtain a visa if they’re considered to be a financial burden on our healthcare system.
Migrants who fall into the “burden” category are those who do not have health insurance within a month of entering America and don’t have enough money to pay for medical costs.
The proclamation, which states, “While our healthcare system grapples with the challenges caused by uncompensated care, the United States Government is making the problem worse by admitting thousands of aliens who have not demonstrated any ability to pay for their healthcare costs,” ruffled a lot of feathers on the Left.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association and other organizations asked a federal court to halt President Donald Trump's proclamation that requires green card applicants abroad to prove they can afford health insurance. https://t.co/QtOM9pbQL2

On October 30th, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Innovation Law Lab, Sidley Austin, LLP and the Justice Action Center filed a lawsuit saying the proclamation is an abuse of power.
America is still trying to figure out how to provide affordable healthcare to its own citizens, we can’t try to provide it for the whole world.
