President Trump says he will sign an Executive Order to suspend immigration to the United States.
On a late Monday night, President Trump went to Twitter to announce that he will sign an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States of America amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!", President stated in his tweet.
It remains unclear what does the president mean exactly by suspending immigration, and what will happen to those who applied already for work and other types of visas.
This announcement comes just days after the President issued a recommendation to open up the American economy.
As the election 2020 approaches, Trump is ramping up his 2016 immigration campaign promise to put an American worker first and in his words " protect the jobs" of American citizens. As of right now, U.S. has 22 million people unemployed and some state funds may soon run out.
