While America is desperately trying to reopen the economy, the Coronavirus pandemic continues to rage across the world.
As a result, Trump is signing an executive order suspending immigration into the U.S.
Liberal heads will explode over this. Let them.
Trump says he will suspend all immigration into U.S. over coronavirus
President Donald Trump said on Monday he will suspend all immigration into the United States temporarily through an executive order in response to the coronavirus outbreak and to protect American jobs.
The move, which the Republican president announced on Twitter, effectively achieves a long-term Trump policy goal to curb immigration, making use of the health and economic crisis that has swept the country as a result of the pandemic to do so.
The decision drew swift condemnation from some Democrats, who accused the president of creating a distraction from what they view as a slow and faulty response to the coronavirus.
Trump said he was taking the action to protect the U.S. workforce. Millions of Americans are suffering unemployment after companies shed employees amid nationwide lockdowns to stop the contagion.
“In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States,” Trump said in a tweet.

This is a great point.
I would love to see the mental gymnastics democrats are going through right now:
Americans need to stay home
immigrants need to come to America.
President Trump is a genius.
