Trump extends pause on new immigration visas to ensure jobs for Americans


WASHINGTON-- US President Donald Trump extended Monday a pause on new immigrant visas through end of year to ensure "we continue putting American workers first during our ongoing coronavirus recovery." Trump is building on this measure with an additional pause on several job-related non-immigrant visas - H-1Bs, H-2Bs without a nexus to the food-supply chain, certain H-4s, as well as Ls and certain Js - preserving jobs for American citizens, the White House said.

Trump's efforts, it added, would ensure businesses look to American workers first when hiring.

"With some exceptions, we should not permit large numbers of foreign workers to enter the United States at a time when so many Americans are out of work," said Trump.

He said American workers compete against foreign nationals for jobs in every sector of "our economy, including against millions of aliens who enter the United States to perform temporary work." A senior Administration office, requesting anonymity, told reporters the sum total of what these actions would do in terms of freeing up jobs over the course of the rest of 2020 was about 525,000 jobs.
