Donald Trump bans ALL immigration into the U.S. to ‘protect jobs’ as coronavirus pandemic puts 22 million Americans out of work

Donald Trump announced Monday that he plans to ban immigration into the United States amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The president tweeted: ‘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!’
At least 22 million Americans are now out of work as tough measures to control the coronavirus outbreak wiped out 13.5 percent of the workforce and 10 years of job growth.
In an address to the nation last month Trump announced a drastic ban on foreigners traveling to the United States from Europe. He had already banned travel from China as the COVID-19 outbreak was spreading from the city of Wuhan.
Exact details of this latest order were not immediately clear but migrant farm workers and medics are thought to be exempt, The Wall Street Journal reports.
It was also pointed out on Twitter that the U.S.-Canada border is already closed, most visa applications are on hold and the administration essentially shut down the nation’s asylum system last month.
The White House has not commented on Trump’s latest tweet but the order is likely to face legal challenges.
