President Trump extends visa and green card suspension through March

President Trump announced on Thursday that he’s once again dropping the hammer on work visa and green card applications through March due to coronavirus and economic concerns.

Trump’s restrictions on visas and green cards are hugely unpopular with Democrats and RINOs, but are important to ensuring that American workers and graduates can access jobs first before foreign nationals.

“The effects of COVID-19 on the United States labor market and on the health of American communities is a matter of ongoing national concern, and the considerations present in Proclamations 10014 and 10052 have not been eliminated,” the White House declared in a prepared statement.

“Moreover, actions such as Statesโ€™ continued imposition of restrictions on businesses still affect the number of workers that can be hired as compared with February 2020,” the statement added.

President Trump’s initial ban, issued in April, was meant to last 60 days to reduce the competition for American jobs. President Trump extended it numerous times throughout 2020. It was set to expire most recently on Thursday.

The latest suspension will last through March, and according to the Hill:

The suspension applies to H-1B visas, H-2B visas, H-4 visas, L-1 visas and certain J-1 visas.

The largest program affected by the order is H-1B visas, whose recipients are typically skilled workers in the tech industry who can stay in the U.S. for multiple years.

H-2B visas apply to seasonal workers and H-4 visas are given to spouses of H-1B visa holders.

J-1 visas are given to researchers, scholars and other specialized categories such as au pairs, while L-1 visas are for executives transferring to the United States from positions abroad with the same employer.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has refused to comment on the proclamation, though it would be unsurprising if his transition team has plans to reverse Trump’s order if Biden is inaugurated on January 20th.

Biden’s team announced on Thursday that Biden will issue an executive order on “day one” that would reverse President Trump’s “midnight regulations” — last-minute rules pushed through during the lame-duck period.

  1. Harris is a definite danger to our USA!!! if there were some way to rid us of her I’d sure press the distroy button along with million of other Americans!!!!!!

  2. She is a traitor and should be dealt with as one……………….I was taught that no one was above the law………but am finding out that must not be true anymore……………..

  3. Biden & Harris both have committed crimes that people are in prison for Yet theirs are ignored and covered up by the Democrats.

  4. Crime doesn’t pay, says who? Just look at our Politicians check their bank accounts. Crime will be the only way Americans can survive. We have to get by some way and no one gets punished any more so why not give it a try when Biden gets into office. Let’s go back to DO WHAT I DO NOT WHAT I SAY. Works for them so we need to follow suit. Who knows maybe if you get get good at it you will get elected to the House or Senate even better to be our next President.
