Biden Lifts Trump's Ban on
Certain Immigrant Visas.
In April of 2020, former President
Donald Trump enacted restrictions
intended to keep immigrants from
taking jobs away from American
workers amid the pandemic.
Visas and green cards for many immigrants were frozen as a result.
On Feb. 24, President Biden
revoked the restrictions.
It harms the United States, including by preventing certain family members of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents from joining their families here, President Joe Biden, via statement.
It also harms industries in the United States that utilize talent from around the world, President Joe Biden, via statement.
But another set of immigration restrictions affecting H-1B visas remains in place.
Those restrictions will expire on March 31 as originally planned by the Trump administration
