Trump's Latest Immigration Bans Target Certain Workers, Green Card Applicants
President Trump this week issued a proclamation that expands and extends restrictions on legal immigration that were first set in place in April. At the time, he issued a 60-day ban on most would-be immigrants sponsored for legal residency by relatives in the U.S., except for the spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens. That ban was set to expire this week.
