Trump to sign new immigration ban on Wednesday
U.S. President Donald Trump said in a tweet he would sign an executive order curbing immigration later on Wednesday, in a move he has said would protect U.S. workers amid the economic fallout from the coronavirus outbreak. Trump on Tuesday said the new 60-day ban would apply to those seeking permanent residency, or “green cards,” to live in the United States, but not temporary workers. While including some exemptions, the ban could be renewed for another 60 days or longer, he said, and a second-order was also being considered.
