Federal Judge Drops Hammer On Trump, Blocks His Anti-Immigration Initiative

judge-drops-hammer-on-trump-immigration-policy

Donald Trump, who has been highly known for spreading xenophobic lies to his supporters, faces another legal setback after a federal judge temporarily blocked a measure that would have forced immigrants to provide proof of health insurance or proof that they could afford health care.

A new report revealed on Monday that “US District Judge Michael Simon issued a 28-day restraining order during a rare Saturday session in his courtroom in Portland, Oregon, according to a copy of the decision seen by AFP.”

If Judge Simon had not stepped in, Trump’s initiative would have taken effect on Monday.

The White House decried the ruling.

“It is wrong and unfair for a single district court judge to thwart the policies that the President determined would best protect the United States health care system,” press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

The presidential proclamation of October 4 said that only immigrants who would not “financially burden the United States health care system” would be granted visas.

Trump claims to be welcome to immigration as long as it’s legal. But he’s also trying to make it virtually impossible for people to migrate to the United States.
