Trump to Ban Issuance of New Green Cards, Visas
President Donald Trump facing a tough re-election bid may ban the issuance of new green cards and work visas in the next few days. President Trump hopes to boosts his re-election campaign by claiming to protect American workers from foreign competition especially, as the economy reopens after the worst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump is poised to sign the executive order according to The New York Times, Monday. The order will exempt professionals in industries that are considered to be critical to economy.
The impact of the lockdown has threatened the global economy and vital workforce is lost to the COVID-19 as death figures continue to rise especially in the US. This is also a census year in the US and as the Trumps re-election bid heats up, the pandemic and how he manages it may become a factor for or against his re-election.
