Trump may extend worker visa restrictions until year-end - report

United States President Donald Trump may sign an executive order extending the ban on issuing employment-based immigration visas until the end of the year over worries about the coronavirus pandemic, Politico reported citing two people familiar with the discussions.

According to the media outlet, the ban would cover visas given to foreign workers seeking a temporary stay in the country, with agricultural workers and students allegedly not to be included.

The president had made a decision to halt immigration into the county for a 60-day period back in April in order to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19. Back on Saturday, however, he told Fox News some information regarding visas will be announced as early as Monday.
