US will block immigrants unable to pay for healthcare, says Trump

Earlier in August, the USA government issued a rule that would deny permanent residence to the legal immigrants in the country who were considered to be a "public charge" by the authorities.

Trump said data has shown that "lawful immigrants" are three times more likely than U.S. citizens to lack health insurance.

"They will need health insurance to be in the country legally (and) the only way they may be able to afford coverage is with ACA (the Affordable Care Act) subsidies", Levitt tweeted.

In proclamation issued by the White House on Friday, said it would not affect any individual's eligibility for asylum or refugee status.

Although the European Commission was supposed to introduce visa requirements for citizens of the USA and Canada by 12 April 2016 because they did not lift visas for all EU citizens, it eventually did not do so.

The proclamation sidesteps Congress, along with the normal executive branch regulatory process, and does not provide an opportunity for public comment, according to Rand. How much money is that?

The affected category are people seeking immigrant visas.

Friday's proclamation falls in line with the administration's attempts to restrict legal immigration and reshape the legal immigrant population in the US.

Under the new proclamation, which was earlier reported by The Wall Street Journal, officials are directed to use a similar approach in determining whether to grant immigrant visas to people seeking to live in the United States.

These benefits also include food assistance, Medicaid, and subsidized housing programmes.

It comes as another administration policy targeting legal immigration - the public charge rule - is set to go into effect later this month.

On August 12, the United States government issued a rule that would deny permanent residence to the legal immigrants in the country who were considered to be a "public charge" by the authorities.
