Back in April 2020, then-President Donald J. Trump enacted an executive order that halted immigration into the United States for at least 60 days. This halt of immigration was then extended further in June, which then included immigrants who were seeking work-related visas. Even up until his final weeks as president, Mr. Trump continued with the restrictions when he issued an additional 3-month extension of immigration restrictions. Now, President Joseph R. Biden will reportedly sign an executive order in the near future rescinding those restrictions and opening up immigration possibilities for many prospective immigrants.
Recently, in a recorded virtual meeting, Esther Olavarria, deputy director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, has stated that President Biden will most likely be signing an executive order that would, “rescind the Trump proclamations that precluded the admission of immigrants and non-immigrants either deemed to be a financial burden on our health care system or deemed to present a risk to U.S. labor markets.”
