A US judge has temporarily blocked a rule proposed by President Donald Trump that would require immigrants to prove they will have health insurance within 30 days of arrival in the US, or can pay for medical care.
Judge Michael Simon, a district judge in Oregon, granted a preliminary injunction against the proposal.
Seven American citizens and an NGO had filed a lawsuit opposing the rule.
They argued it would block hundreds of thousands of legal migrants.
The lawsuit said the number of immigrants who enter the US with family-sponsored visas would drop considerably, or be eliminated altogether.
Would-be immigrants had been struggling to establish how to get the required insurance coverage. The US healthcare system is complex, and has not generally catered to people yet to arrive there.
