A PRESIDENTIAL PROCLAMATION by President Trump requires future green card applicants to show they can afford health care.

On Friday night, the White House announced that immigrants applying for visas starting November 3 would have to show they have health insurance within 30 days of entering the country or the financial capacity to pay for their own health care. Otherwise, the immigrants will be barred from entering.

The proclamation would not impact lawful permanent residents, but it would apply to their spouse, children, and parents, who immigrants often try to bring to the United States.
