Court Un-blocks Ban on H1B & President Trump tests +ve for COVID
- Federal District Court Judge, Jeffrey S. White for the Northern District of California temporarily blocked further implementation of the order, issued in June.
- This un-blocks the U.S. government from enforcing President Trump’s proclamation suspending the entry of certain H-1B, L-1, H-2B and J-1 nonimmigrants, and their dependents.
- The Departments of State and Homeland Security are expected to appeal the ruling.
- This means foreign nationals sponsored by the plaintiffs or plaintiff member organizations, as well as their spouses and dependents, should be able to apply for H, L or J visas at U.S. consulates and enter the United States while the entry ban is in place.
- Stocks falls after Trump tests Positive for COVID-19.
President Trump revealed early Friday morning that he and the first lady, Melania Trump, had tested +ve for the coronavirus (COVID19). The announcement comes just a month before Election Day, sending shockwaves across the country and around the world.
The president’s physician, Sean P. Conley, wrote later that Trump and his wife are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.
