Federal Judge blocks President Trump's Health Insurance Rule for Immigrants

Posted by Hugo Valverde | Nov 04, 2019 | 0 Comments

As an update to our post on President Trump's new executive order requiring immigrant visa applicants at US consulates to have health insurance, on November 2, 2019 a federal judge in Oregon temporarily blocked the executive order from taking effect.  The new order was set to take effect on November 3, 2019.  The new executive order, if allowed to go into effect, will make obtaining an immigrant visa for a family member more challenging.  For now, the judge's order prevents the new executive order from taking effect for 28 days.  We are closely watching this and other developments in immigration law and will keep our readers up to date.
