President Donald Trump has said he will sign an executive order to halt all American infections due to the coronavirus.
On Twitter, he cited “invisible enemy attacks”, as he called the Coronavirus, and the need to protect the activities of the American people, but gave no details.
It is not clear which programs will be affected and whether the president will be able to carry out the task.
Critics say the government is using the coronavirus pandemic to eliminate immigrants.
Migration has traditionally been a strong summit of Mr. Trump, but took a back seat during the coronavirus pandemic and led the November election.
Mr Trump’s announcement late on Monday came as the White House argued that the worst coronavirus pandemic had ended and the country could begin to reopen. Population restrictions, used by many provinces to curb the spread of the virus, have made economic sectors paralyzed.
In the last four weeks, more than 20 million Americans have signed up for work benefits. That amounts to nearly as many jobs as employers had added ten years ago.
The US has more than 787,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19 deaths and 42,000, according to Johns Hopkins University, which tracks the epidemic worldwide.
How can those suggestions work?
It was not immediately clear who would be affected by Mr Trump’s announcement or when such a thing would be pursued, and the White House did not comment.
According to the New York Times, to name several people familiar with the program, a temporary formal arrangement that provides new green cards and work visas may be one way to apply that rate; managers will no longer approve any requests from expatriates to live and work in the US for an indefinite period.
Last month, the US suspended almost all visa processing, including immigrants, because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The United States has already agreed with Canada and Mexico to add border restrictions to non-essential travel until at least mid-May.
Travel is also very limited in Europe and China, although people with temporary work visas, students and business travelers are exempt.
On Monday, the US said it would continue to deport immigrants it met on the border with Mexico for at least another month.
In recent weeks, emergency powers have been used to deport thousands of undocumented migrants along the southern US border. The public health measure allows officials to override immigration laws, and speed up evictions.
Last year, more than one million people were granted permanent residency in the United States, according to the Department of Homeland Security. The top countries of origin are Mexico, China, India, Dominican Republic, Philippines and Cuba.
More than half of that, they were cases of “internal fixation in the US” – meaning they were already there – and only 459,000 were from abroad. The latter group is likely to be affected by the immigration ban.
Speaking of refugees, there were 30,000 people imported into the United States by 2019, most of them from Congo, Myanmar, Ukraine, Eritrea, Afghanistan, and Syria.
What were the reasons for their move?
Donald Trump’s efforts on social media governance should always be taken with a grain of salt. His track record in terms of Twitter guides is decidedly mixed. Details of his temporary ban on all immigration announced a few hours before midnight on Monday, will further elaborate on the scope of his actions.
Still, it is no secret that the president, along with many key advisers, has long regarded immigration as a benefit to the nation, but rather as a devastation. And the text of his tweet, that the move is required not only to protect the nation’s health but also for the “activities of its great American citizens”, underscores this.
There is no doubt that this proposal, in any case, will be strongly opposed by foreign parties, specific business interests and presidential contenders. That is probably okay for a man who likes to draw political battle lines and move his opponents whenever possible.
Four years ago, the President campaigned against an aggressive anti-immigrant stadium, which included the number, if only for a brief period, of the ban on all Muslims entering the country. Now, having been nominated for a re-election of the struggle, you have gained the same level of struggle to become a champion.
