The president of the united States, Donald Trump, has ordered the u.s. consulate to denied visas of entry into the country those migrants without health insurance or not be able to pay for his health, announced on Friday the White House. This is the last measure that promotes Trump in its strategy to reduce both the irregular migration as the legal.
In a proclamation, the president ordered the consular officials to refuse visas unless the applicants demonstrate that they have "the financial resources to pay for the medical costs" while they are in the united States or that "will be covered by an approved health insurance". The measure should come into force from next November 3.
"while our health care system, facing the challenges caused by medical care not paid , the U.S. Government is exacerbating the problem by admitting thousands of foreigners who have not demonstrated any capacity to pay for their medical expenses," said Trump in the proclamation.
To test your thesis, the president, he argued that "the data show that legal immigrants have a three times more likely than U.s. citizens to lack health insurance." "The immigrants who enter this country should not be a burden to our health care system and, in consequence, to the american taxpayers," he concluded.
in Addition to the varied strategies to reduce irregular migration at the border with Mexico, the Government of Trump is also putting the focus on reducing legal migration. On the 12th of August, the Government introduced a regulation that will refuse permission for permanent residence in the united States legal immigrants that the authorities deem to have become a "public charge" to the country.
Under this new law, a legal immigrant will be defined as a "public charge" if you receive "one or more public benefits designated" for more than 12 months in any period of 36 months. These public benefits include food assistance, housing assistance or programs that subsidize the high cost of drugs.Updated Date: 05 October 2019, 19:00
