Today’s discussion is on the presidential proclamation that went into effect on Thursday, April 23, at 11:59 PM.
The proclamation suspends entry of immigrants who present a risk to the US labor market during the economic recovery following the COVID-19 outbreak. This means that the proclamation only impacts people outside of the United States who don’t already have immigrant visas on their passports. More specifically, it suspends entry to any individual seeking to enter the United States as an immigrant who meets the following criteria:
There are many individuals who are exempt from the proclamation.
This proclamation is discretionary, and it will be up to the consular officer to determine if an individual falls under any of the exempted categories.
Nonimmigrant visas are NOT included on the proclamation.
Those individuals seeking relief in the form of asylum, withholding of removal or under the convention against torture, are also NOT included on the proclamation.
The proclamation is set to last 60 days from April 23 and may be extended as deemed necessary.
The immediate impact of the presidential proclamation is relatively minimal because worldwide consulates and embassies are currently closed. However, immigration advocates across the nation expect that the long-term impact may very well be severe.
