President Trump Extends Suspension Of Work Visas And Green Cards....

U.S. President Donald Trump has issued a proclamation extending the suspension of issuance of work visas and green cards.
The proclamation came hours before the president’s executive order on the immigration restrictions was set to expire.

The order will now expire at the end of March, extending into the first term in office of President-elect Joe Biden, who has vowed to reverse Trump’s immigration policies.

The proclamation said allowing immigrant workers into the country would “pose a risk of displacing and disadvantaging U.S. workers during the economic recovery following the COVID-19 outbreak.

“The effects of COVID-19 on the United States labour 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”, Trump wrote in the proclamation.

The President first imposed the restrictions on the issuance of green cards for immigrants in April, and expanded it in June to limit several other work visas.

They include new H-1B tech worker visas, H-2B seasonal worker visas, certain J work and education exchange visitor visas and L executive transfer visas.

The proclamation said the recent surge in COVID-19 cases had surpassed previous highs in June.

This, in addition to implementation of pandemic-related restrictions, has placed further strain on U.S. businesses, it said.

“The effect of recently approved vaccines and other treatments has not yet been fully realised for the U.S. labor market, the proclamation said, adding,

while the November overall unemployment rate in the United States of 6.7 percent reflects a marked decline from its April high, there were still 9,834,000 fewer seasonally adjusted non-farm jobs in November than in February of 2020.”

The order applies only to foreigners who are currently outside the U.S. and do not yet have permission to enter.

Those who already have permanent residency are not affected, and there are exceptions for certain people, including spouses and children of U.S. citizens.
