Nationwide Injunction Blocks Trump's Health Insurance Proclamation: Doe v. Trump

Karina Brown, CNS, Nov. 26, 2019

"President Donald Trump’s attempt to bar immigrants without health insurance from entering the United States won’t take effect yet, after a federal judge issued a nationwide preliminary injunction on Tuesday. ... The current proclamation would have no specific ending point, [Judge] Simon said, in part because it would do nothing to solve the problem it is purportedly based on.  “Here, the identified ‘inadequacies and risks’ are a massive, estimated $35 billion-per-year domestic systemic health care problem,” the judge wrote.  Immigration advocates applauded the ruling.  “The egregiousness of the proclamation demanded urgent action to save so many affected immigrants and their loved ones,” said Jesse Bless, director of federal litigation for the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “We are tremendously grateful that our efforts have stopped the President from harming so many immigrant families.”"
