Justice Action Center spokesperson Esther Sung said she was encouraged by the court's decision in a statement.
A federal judge in OR on Saturday temporarily blocked a Trump administration proclamation that would have required prospective immigrants to prove they would have USA health insurance within 30 days of their arrival OR enough money to pay for "reasonably foreseeable medical costs". They also said it would bar as many as 375,000 qualified immigrants each year.
Judge Michael Simon, a district judge in OR, on Saturday granted a preliminary injunction against the proposal, the BBC reported.
Donald Trump's new rule potentially damages would-be immigrants and their families. It does not apply to asylum-seekers, refugees or children.
Under the government's visa rule, the required insurance can be bought individually or provided by an employer and it can be short-term coverage or catastrophic.

Mike Pompeo Arraigns Washington Post Over ‘Sick’ Headline for ISIS Leader’s Obituary

ACLU of Oregon's response came after Judge Michael Simon of the U.S. District Court in Portland issued a restraining order blocking the Trump administration from implementing a plan to require immigrants who apply for permanent resident card or green card to demonstrate their ability to buy health insurance or medical costs in the United States. Medicaid or Affordable Care Act subsidies do not qualify as "approved health insurance" under the proclamation.
The rule is the Trump administration's latest effort to limit immigrant access to public programs while trying to move the country away from a family based immigration system to a merit-based system.
The Trump administration contended in its proclamation that immigrants are "about three times more likely" than US citizens to be uninsured and said they "should not further saddle our health care system, and subsequently American taxpayers, with higher costs".
Research from George Washington University found that recent immigrants without insurance made up less than a tenth of 1 per cent of USA medical fees in 2017.
About 1.1 million people obtain green cards to become permanent residents of the USA, every year.
"Countless thousands across the country can breathe a sigh of relief today because the court recognized the urgent and irreparable harm that would have been inflicted" without the hold, said Jesse Bless, director of federal litigation at the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
