A federal judge blocked the new rule requiring prospective immigrants to have health insurance.

The Trump administration unveiled a rule in October that would require prospective immigrants to prove they have health insurance before they can receive a visa. Currently, the policy is blocked by an emergency order that ends on November 30. Yesterday, Judge Simon from Oregon issued a preliminary injunction against the health insurance rule, blocking it while litigation proceeds. The main focus of the ruling was that the policy was inconsistent with the INA, the governing law enacted by Congress.

A judge has temporarily blocked Trump’s new rule requiring prospective immigrants to have health insurance.

he new policy would require prospective immigrants to obtain non-subsidized health insurance within 30 days of entry into the U.S., a move which has been criticized by immigration and health advocates. District Judge Michael Simon issued a temporary restraining order on the policy on Saturday, the day before the policy was to go into effect.  The block will be in place for 28 days while plaintiffs and the government gather evidence for the lawsuit.
