A non-profit and citizens in Portland, Oregon filed a lawsuit on Wednesday alleging that the president’s decision to require prospective immigrants to have health insurance violates separation of powers and is an attempt to override the will of Congress in the realms of immigration and healthcare.

The rule will apply to people seeking immigrant visas from abroad and is set to take effect on Sunday, November 3.
