The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has decided to “temporarily” suspend immigration to the American country, alluding to the “attack” that the coronavirus pandemic represents.
“In light of the attack by the invisible enemy, I will sign an executive order to temporarily suspend immigration to the United States,” Trump announced on his Twitter account.
He has also justified his decision “to protect the jobs” of “fine” U.S. citizens.
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!
