President Trump plans to sign an order temporarily suspending immigration throughout the COVID 19 pandemic.

President Trump plans to sign an executive order halting immigration into the United States during the COVID 19 pandemic. Many questions about the order have yet to be answered,  The biggest ones being, "how far-reaching the order will be, when it will be signed or which countries it will apply to" (El Paso Herald Post)

President Trump 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! - Twitter

According to

...there are at least two legal justifications for Trump to close the border to all immigration: Title 42 of the U.S. Code enables the president to halt immigration for health reasons, while a 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding his travel ban gives him legal precedent.
