This measure will come into force on November 3.
The President of the United States Donald Trump signed a decree that banned the admission to the country of immigrants who are unable to pay the cost of their medical care.
To do this, they must have the necessary financial means or guarantee that they will purchase health insurance no later than 30 days from the date of entry into the United States.
Exceptions are made for holders of US visas; children of US citizens; minors traveling unaccompanied; holders of US residence permits who have spent more than a year outside the US; citizens of Afghanistan and Iraq who have assisted the US government.
According to the decree, this measure will not affect the ability of immigrants in the future to apply for asylum in the United States.
