Last night, the President issued the “Proclamation Suspending Entry of Immigrants Who Present Risk to the U.S. Labor Market During the Economic Recovery Following the COVID-19 Outbreak”. While the President’s tweet on Monday night indicated that he would suspend all immigration, this proclamation is much more limited and does not have any initial impact as the U.S. consulates around the world are already closed (not issuing any visas) and the existing travel bans are still in place.
