What Trump's Order Does Not Do
On Monday, April 20, 2020 President Trump sent a tweet indicating that he would sign an Executive Order suspending immigration to the United States temporarily.
Just tonight, the President clarified that his Executive Order would only apply to those individuals seeking permanent residency (green cards) in the United States and the suspension would be for an initial 60 days. His Executive Order does not impact nonimmigrant visas such as H-1Bs, TNs, L-1s, and other visas that allow US employers to access foreign talent. It is also our understanding that the Executive Order does not apply to those seeking permanent residency already in the United States.
