Biden rescinds Trump era health insurance requirement for new immigrants

Trump’s initial announcement of the health insurance requirement sent prospective immigrants scrambling to figure out how to get the necessary coverage and navigate U.S. bureaucracy. Biden has vowed to reverse many of Trump’s restrictive immigration policies, rolling back a travel ban on 13 mostly Muslim-majority and African countries and halting construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall. Immigrant advocates said the proclamation would have barred entry to as many as two-thirds of legal immigrants had it been allowed to take effect.

A federal judge blocked the healthcare requirement before its effective date a month later. But in a December 2020 ruling, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Trump proclamation, saying it fell within the president’s executive power. Trump issued a proclamation in October 2019 requiring all prospective immigrants to show proof of U.S. health insurance within 30 days of their arrival in the United States or enough money to pay for “reasonably foreseeable medical costs.”

Biden took office weeks later, and advocates said the measure never went into effect. The White House and other U.S. agencies did not immediately respond to requests for comment. In an announcement by the White House, the Democratic president said the suspension imposed by his Republican predecessor “does not advance the interests of the United States.”

Another order reversed by Biden proposed building a sculpture garden of American “heroes.” Biden’s proclamation came as part of a package of actions late on Friday reversing some largely symbolic policy statements by Trump. Those included the former president’s executive orders deriding online censorship, street protests attacking monuments and excessive government regulation.
