The White House said that the suspension of entry for immigrants who pose a risk to the labor market during the economic recovery from the effects of the coronavirus outbreak “harms the United States.”

US President Joe Biden canceled on Wednesday the decree of his predecessor Donald Trump on restricting entry to American territory for some categories of foreign citizens. This is stated in a statement issued by the press service of the White House.

“The suspension of entry of April 22, 2020 (for immigrants who pose a risk to the US labor market during the economic recovery from the effects of the coronavirus outbreak), <…> is not in the interests of the United States. On the contrary, it harms the United States – it is noted in the text. – <…> The relevant decisions are canceled.”

On April 22, 2020, Trump signed an executive order on a 60-day ban on immigration to the country for some categories due to the negative economic consequences of the spread of coronavirus infection. The decree was repeatedly extended.
