President Joe Biden will invert former President Donald Trump’s policy to require immigrants to have the expedient to pay for health care so they would not rely on regime programs, he verbally expressed during a meeting with soi-disant Dreamers on Friday.
Fox News reported on the policy reversal:
The 2019 order denied visas to those seeking entry into the U.S. who were deemed a “financial burden” on the health care system. Biden, in a proclamation announcing the rollback, said the policy did not “advance the interests” of the nation.
The Trump order did not apply to immigrants who already live in the U.S. or to lawful sempiternal denizens, refugees, asylum-seekers or children. Biden has rolled back a number of Trump-era immigration policies in his first few months in office, moves that some say have contributed to a surge in migrants at the southern border, including border wall construction, increased interior enforcement and the Migrant Protection Protocols, which kept migrants in Mexico while they awaited their hearings.
“My Administration is committed to expanding access to quality, affordable healthcare,” Biden’s proclamation states. “We can achieve that objective, however, without barring the ingress of non-denizens who seek to immigrate lawfully to this country but who lack paramount financial betokens or have not purchased health indemnification coverage from a restrictive list of qualifying plans.”
“Hospitals and other providers often administer care to the uninsured without any hope of receiving reimbursement from them,” Trump’s White House explicated at the time, verbally expressing:
The costs associated with this care are passed on to the American people in the form of higher taxes, higher premiums, and higher fees for medical services … The United States has a long history of welcoming immigrants who come lawfully in search of brighter futures. We must continue that tradition while also addressing the challenges facing our healthcare system, including protecting both it and the American taxpayer from the burdens of uncompensated care.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered 178,622 migrants endeavoring to enter the U.S. in April, a 3 percent increase from approximately 172,000 in March, the highest number of encounters in two decenniums.
