Trump Proclamation Halts Immigration for 60 Days – With Some Exceptions

Disaster Response

President Trump has signed a proclamation that halts immigrants from entering the U.S. for the next 60 days.

However, the measure includes broad exceptions and will not effect the entry of those on temporary or non-immigrant visas, such as agriculture workers and H-2B guest workers. It also exempts EB-5 investor visas from the suspension.

Individuals who are currently in the United States with pending green card applications are also exempt from the suspension.

Trump said he signed the proclamation in order to halt the spread of the coronavirus and protect American jobs at a time of high unemployment.
