Trump moves to suspend visas for uninsured immigrants

• https://www.politico.com By TED HESSON and DAN DIA

The proclamation — the latest in a series of moves that would restrict immigration — says immigrants must demonstrate they will have health insurance within 30 days of entering the country or that they can afford to cover any medical expenses.

The White House touted the proclamation as "protecting health care benefits for American citizens," arguing that uninsured immigrants create a financial burden for hospitals and doctors, forcing them to charge higher fees for Americans to cover the cost.

"People who come here shouldn't immediately be on public assistance," a senior administration official told POLITICO. "We should bring people here who contribute and not drain resources."
