President Trump Planning to Announce New Guest Worker Restrictions
During a recent interview, President Trump confirmed that he would announce new guest worker visa restrictions in the coming days. The president also sounded off the ongoing protests happening across the country.
The announcement came ahead of Trump’s first campaign rally since March.
Trump already hinted at giving executive order on visas this week, a motion seeking to stabilize the economy in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Reportedly, the action would suspend some guest worker programs.
Citing the impact of foreign workers on the United States labor market, particularly in an environment characterized by increased domestic unemployment and depressed demand for labor, the President already signed an executive order in April that suppressed some forms of immigration.
Additionally, Trump doubled down on his promise to rescind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), popular during Obama’s reign. DACA provided legal protections to immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
