Serhat TUNAR -TDO- United States President Donald Trump has signed a government affidavit calling for immigrant visa applications to be denied to those who do not have insurance or financial means to cover medical expenses within 30 days of entering the country.
The new application, which will take effect on 3rd of November, will affect immigrant visa applications from outside the United States, according to a statement from the White House.
Trump said in the declaration that while the health care system is grappling with care costs that cannot financially offset it, the United States government is making the problem worse by accepting thousands of foreigners, and that these people are in no position to pay their own health care costs.
The document also included the approval of employers-sponsored immigrants and older people under the Medicaid program. Immigrants over the age of 18 who are included in the Medicaid program developed for people with low income levels will not be granted approval, he added.
In September, the Trump administration made sweeping changes to regulations that would make it harder for green-card immigrants who use certain types of public assistance, and announced that it would accept only 18 thousand refugees into the United States under the 2020 tax year.
This was the lowest number of refugees accepted in the country's modern history.
