🚨🚨@MigrationPolicy has crunched the numbers: New Trump proclamation banning entry of would-be green card holders who can’t prove they’ll have health insurance coverage within 30 days could exclude 2/3 of future immigrants 1/5
34% of recent (<3 years in US) adults with green cards lack health insurance
Another 31% have publicly funded or subsidized insurance that wouldn't meet Trump proclamation test: Medicaid, or insurance purchased through an ACA exchange eligible for subsidies or tax credits 2/5
The share of intending immigrants who'll struggle to prove they can get insurance within 30 days could be even higher than our estimate that 65% wouldn’t surmount hurdle, since it can take time for people to identify a health insurance plan or find a job offering insurance 3/5
In order to qualify to buy health insurance through an ACA exchange without being eligible for subsidies, a household has to have income over 400% of the federal poverty line, or over $103,000 for a family of four 4/5
Overall, the new Trump insurance requirement could be an even stricter test for new immigrants than the #publiccharge rule, which is now being litigated in 8 lawsuits 5/5
