President Trump Announces He Will Suspend U.S. Migration
April 21, 2020
U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Monday, April 20, 2020, on his Twitter account that he will sign an order to "temporarily" suspend immigration to the United States.
Spanish translation of the tweet made:
"In view of the Invisible Enemy attack, and to protect the jobs of our MAGNIFICENT American Citizens, I will sign an Executive Order to suspend migration to the United States!"
At the moment there are no details about which immigration programs will be affected by his order.
National security adviser, Robert O'Brien, confirmed on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, that this decision is necessary to protect the country's health, stating that it would not be very different from the travel ban from China that Trump established last January.
"We're trying to do everything, the president is trying to do everything to put the health of the American people first during this crisis," O'Brien told Fox News.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all authorizations and visa approvals by USCIS, including immigration visas, have been deferred for several weeks.
United States currently has nearly 800,000 cases of coronavirus and more than 42,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
