US President Donald Trump has suspended immigration to the United States, claiming the move is aimed at protecting his people and their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic.
The order, signed Wednesday, suspends new immigration for at least 60 days.
It is applied to people who are currently outside of the US seeking entry and do not currently have a valid visa, according to the text.
Under the order, more than 20,000 people per month would be blocked from obtaining a US green card of permanent residence, based on an analysis by the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute
