The economic burden of the pandemic has made President Trump sign a document limiting the entry of certain immigrants that would pose a risk to the American workforce.
President Trump’s new immigration order went in effect June 24 to protect American jobs. The order will expire by the end of the year unless President Trump extends the date. This proclamation does not impact immigrants who are already in the country. It suspends the entry of immigrants who want to work as teachers, counselors, trainees, au pairs, or earn college credit through intern programs.
The proclamation allows entry to U.S. service members along with their families. Healthcare professionals, investors, Afghan and Iraqi immigrants, and any immigrant who wants to work temporarily in the food industry is allowed to enter the country under the newly signed document. Mission-critical immigrant visas are granted to aliens who fall under essential personnel.
