Donald Trump planning on suspending U.S. Immigration

United States President Donald Trump has said on Monday that he has intentions to lose the United States to people trying to immigrate into the country to live and work. He said that the drastic move would protect American workers from foreign competition as the nation will try to recover from the shutdown caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

“In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter, “I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!” In recent weeks, aggressively restricting immigration has been justified by the Trump administration through health concerns.

Even before the tweet, the administration had expanded travel restrictions, slowed visa processing, and moved to swiftly bar asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants from entering the country. Their actions have alarmed immigration advocates who say that Mr. Trump and his advisers are using a pandemic to further hard-line immigration policies. Mr. Trump’s tweet has confirmed that the country is to be sealed off the country from the rest of the world.

According to people familiar with Trump’s plan, formal order will come as the next few days, which will temporarily bar the provision of new green cards and work visas. Using such an executive order, the Trump administration will not entertain any application from foreigners who wish to live and work in the U.S. for an undetermined period of time. It is not yet clear on which legal basis Mr. Trump would claim to justify shutting down most immigration.

Mr. Trump’s plans will affect workers who have for years received visas to perform specialized jobs in U.S. They will be denied permission to enter the country. Some workers in some critical deemed industries will be exempt from the ban.
