The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in favor of President Trump’s rule that illegal aliens without insurance could not be admitted into the United States unless they have health insurance on their own.
The “public charge rule” is embedded in US immigration law.
Simply stated, no illegal immigrant can be admitted into the United States if they were going to be a burden on the US taxpayer.
Under section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(4), an alien seeking admission to the United States or seeking to adjust status to that of a lawful permanent resident (obtaining a Green Card) is inadmissible if the alien, “at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, is likely at any time to become a public charge.”
If an alien is inadmissible, we will not grant admission to the United States or adjustment of status.
The San Francisco Chronicle claims that it would prevent 375,000 illegal aliens from coming to the United States every year.
Its implementation may not last long though.
If Biden is president and Democrats manage to manufacture enough votes for Democrats to take both Senate seats in Georgia, the Democrats will gladly use your money to pay for their healthcare.
The Chronicle claimed migrants have a right to enter American’s homeland even if they need Americans to pay for their healthcare and suggested that President-elect Joe Biden would probably reverse Trump’s move:
Thursday’s court ruling involved his October 2019 proclamation denying visas to immigrants who did not have health insurance and could not show that they would obtain it within 30 days of entering the country. Immigrants could receive Medicare and be allowed to remain, but those who planned to obtain coverage under the low-income Medicaid program or the government-subsidized Affordable Care Act would not be eligible. Advocates for immigrants say Trump’s proclamation would bar entry to nearly two-thirds of all otherwise legal migrants, those who obtain their entry visas from employers, U.S. relatives or an annual lottery.
The ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, if it becomes final, would allow Trump’s order to take effect for the first time. But attorney Esther Sung of the Justice Action Center, one of the legal organizations challenging the policy, said that under the court’s standard timetable, the ruling will not be binding for 52 days. That would be well past President-elect Joe Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration. Biden has promised to undo his predecessor’s anti-immigration policies as soon as possible.
Rest assured that if the worst comes to pass, their hand will be in your pocket to pay for healthcare for the illegal aliens as well as for housing, utilities, and food. Because that’s who Democrats are as a party. The only people they are not generous to are hard-working American citizens.
