Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) has indicated he will introduce legislation to codify and extend the 60-day ban on green cards implemented by President Trump’s executive order.
In order to safeguard American workers, the bill would temporarily extend the immigration pause until 60 days after the coronavirus national emergency order expires. The executive order is currently scheduled to lapse on June 23, but Trump has hinted that he may extend it.
Tell your Senators to back this immigration suspension!
Along with the coronavirus health crisis associated with the pandemic, our country now faces another national crisis—unemployment. Over 33 million people have filed for unemployment in the last six weeks. Economists say the monthly unemployment rate for April is likely to reach 16%, by far the highest number since the Great Depression, and continue to increase.
High immigration levels have depressed the wages of American workers for years. We certainly need to pause immigration during this period of massive unemployment.
Ask your Senators to support this measure to protect American workers.
Even though it will be difficult to pass this bill in Congress, your letters will help build support for President Trump to extend his suspension.
