CPR joined Disability Rights California and 6 other disability advocacy organizations in an amicus brief filed today in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in opposition to President Trump’s proclamation issued in October, requiring visa applicants from abroad to buy certain approved health insurance or have the financial means to cover foreseeable medical expenses. Amici argue that the proclamation will not only fail to accomplish its purported purpose, reducing uncompensated care costs, but will do so in a way that illegally discriminates against people with disabilities. More information on the proclamation can be found here.
