President Trump stated Monday that he will sign an executive order “to momentarily suspend migration into the United States” since of the coronavirus.
He used no information as to what immigration programs might be affected by the order.
Trump has actually taken credit for his restrictions on travel to the U.S. from China and hard-hit European countries, arguing they contributed to slowing the spread of the virus in the U.S.
Due to the pandemic, almost all visa processing by the State Department, including immigrant visas, has actually been suspended for weeks.
More than 750,000 Americans have actually come down with COVID-19 and more than 42,000 have passed away.
Because of the attack from the Undetectable Enemy, along with the requirement to protect the jobs of our FANTASTIC American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend migration into the United States!
