"The final rule does not create a new regulatory scheme that would permit HIV-positive persons to enter the United States temporarily, nor does it change the law for HIV-positive immigrants already in the U.S., most of whom are barred from attaining legal status except in extremely limited circumstances," said Vishal Trivedi, Immigration Project Manager at Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC). "HIV-positive immigrants would still be inadmissible under the new rule and subject to waiver requirements, including the need for a qualifying family member to support their application, and demonstration of private health insurance coverage," added Trivedi.

"Until Congress undoes this legislation, DHS may be limited in what they can do," explained Vishal Trivedi, manager of GMHC's Immigration Project, "but if the White House was serious about protecting the human rights of people living with HIV, they could have invited legislation overturning the policy."

Vishal Trivedi, an accredited representative in GMHC's legal department, presented issues regarding family and employment based immigration, and the HIV ground of inadmissibility, more commonly referred to as the HIV Bar.Pursuant to INA Section 212(g)(1), an HIV positive intending immigrant must file Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility, to establish the following: first, he or she must show a qualifying relative (spouse, parent, or unmarried son or daughter or minor adopted child) who is a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, second, he or she poses a minimal public health threat of the spread of the disease, and last, he or she will not become a public charge or dependent on US government benefits, such as Medicaid, in order to pay for their medications.

One can demonstrate a minimal public health threat by obtaining a physician's letter, which should be filed concurrently with the Form I-601.The physician's letter should state that the HIV positive intending immigrant has received counseling and is aware of the modes of transmission of the disease.If the intending immigrant is outside the US, and has not yet received treatment or counseling in the US, it was suggested by Mr. Trivedi to obtain a letter from a US physician which would state that the HIV positive intending immigrant, "upon entry", will immediately receive treatment and counseling, and thus poses a minimal threat to the public health.
The public charge issue, addressed on Form I-601, deals with the intending immigrant's ability to afford his or her medical expenses at no cost to the US government.
