As of Monday, Donald Trump has banned all immigrants seeking green cards from entering the United States of America. The White House published the “Proclamation against Aliens Who Present a Risk to the U.S. Labor Market Following the Coronavirus Outbreak.” Earlier this year, in April, the President announced a “temporary” ban on the issuance of immigrant visas. This is an extension of that order.
Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
