A federal judge in Oregon Saturday temporarily blocked a presidential proclamation requiring most individuals seeking to enter the United States via an immigrant visa to have approved health insurance coverage within 30 days of entry. The Oct. 4 proclamation was scheduled to take effect Sunday. A coalition last week filed a class-action lawsuit challenging the proclamation and an associated emergency information collection notice that provided less than 48 hours to comment. The judge has scheduled a Nov. 22 hearing on their request for a preliminary injunction.
