US district judge Michael Simon in Portland, Oregon, blocked Trump’s rule requiring immigrants to prove they will have health insurance or can pay for medical care before they can get visas.
The judge is an Obama appointee. That about sums it up. Another activist judge making life worse for everyday American citizens.
President Trump is only asking that applicants for citizenship are not a drain on American taxpayers. Is that too much to ask?

Activist judges need to stop holding up progress toward a merit-based immigration system.
A federal judge in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday put on hold a Trump administration rule requiring immigrants prove they will have health insurance or can pay for medical care before they can get visas.
U.S. District Judge Michael Simon granted a temporary restraining order that prevents the rule from going into effect Sunday. It’s not clear when he will rule on the merits of the case.
Seven U.S. citizens and a nonprofit organization filed the federal lawsuit Wednesday contending the rule would block nearly two-thirds of all prospective legal immigrants.
The lawsuit also said the rule would greatly reduce or eliminate the number of immigrants who enter the United States with family sponsored visas. More
We can’t even afford the people we already have here. Why are we letting in a million new people every year if they can’t prove themselves to be self-sufficient? That’s the standard for every other country. Self-responsibility isn’t a great deal to ask.
This highlights the importance of re-electing President Trump. We need to continue to replace obstructionist, anti-American judges with competent Constitutionalists.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
