On May 14, 2021, President Biden revoked former President Trump’s October 4, 2019 proclamation that he would have banned immigrants from entering unless they could prove they already had health insurance, they could insure. if a health insurance within 30 days after entry or financial capacity to cover your health costs.
I’ve already posted a video on this topic on my YouTube channel, US Immigration TV, and I invite you to watch this video, as well as other immigration videos I’ve posted. So make sure you subscribe to my channel, as well as like and share with other people you think might benefit from this news as well as the latest immigration updates.
It was estimated that if Trump’s proclamation had had effect, it could have banned the entry of up to two-thirds of legal immigrants. Trump’s insurance proclamation could have easily prevented elderly parents, relatives with certain medical conditions, and poor people from emigrating.
According to President Biden, Trump’s proclamation of health care did not “advance the interests of the United States.” Instead, Biden said his administration “is committed to expanding access to quality and affordable health care.” This could be achieved “without preventing the entry of citizens who want to emigrate legally to this country, but who do not have significant financial means or who have not purchased health insurance coverage from a restrictive list of qualification plans.”
This is a relief from Trump’s restrictive policies, especially when it comes to public office. As you recall, Trump tried to restrict people’s immigration if a consul believed they were likely to never seek public benefits at any time in the future. He also tried to restrict the immigration of people if the petitioner had received any public benefit. With his 2019 proclamation, Trump wanted to make sure that people who immigrated could provide their own health coverage, and if not, they could not be denied a visa.
Now, fortunately, we return to the public charging policies that were in place since 1999. Of course, the petitioner has yet to give an affidavit of support and comply with the poverty guidelines.
But if you have a family member who is in the process of obtaining an immigrant visa abroad and you have any questions or concerns about their eligibility, either for public office or for any other element, I would suggest that you only Seek advice and assistance from a lawyer. I know that many people try to file the immigration application on their own first, and then if they are denied or denied, they see a lawyer. But once a case is denied at the embassy, it can be very difficult to get the denial or denial reopened or annulled. In many cases, the embassy will immediately send the case to USCIS, where it could take years before you can be given the opportunity to argue your eligibility.
But still, this is great news, as it is one less element that people should worry about as a reason for denial or denial.
