Biden proclaimed to revoke Former President Donald Trump’s Proclamation 10014 and its two extensions ahead of their expected March 31 expiration date. Trump first enacted the ban in April, saying he wanted to protect US workers who lost their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
But Biden said the ban didn’t advance those interests.
Proclamation 10014 ‘harms the United States, including by preventing certain family members of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents from joining their families here. It also harms industries in the United States that utilize talent from around the world,’ he said.
