June 22nd Presidential Proclamation Amending the April 22nd Presidential Proclamation re Immigration

Going into effect at 12:01AM EST on June 24, 2020, the Trump Administration is suspending and limiting the admission of the following nonimmigrant visa categories:

(1) H-1Bs, H-2Bs, and dependent status

(2) J-1 for interns, trainees, teachers, camp counselor, au pair, summer work travel program and dependent status

(3) L-1 and dependent status

BUT, only affects those aliens who are outside of the U.S. on the effective date of the Proclamation, do not have a valid nonimmigrant visa on the effective date of this Proclamation, and do not have an official travel document other than a visa (e.g., boarding foil, transportation letter, or advance parole) that is valid on the effective date of the Proclamation or issued after.

BUT, there are exceptions for green card holders, spouse and children of U.S. citizens, aliens seeking to enter the U.S. to provide temporary labor or services essential to the U.S. food supply chain or aliens whose entry is determined to be in the national interest by Secretary of State, Secretary of Homeland Security, and their respective designees.

The Proclamation is set to expire on December 31, 2020, but can be continued, if necessary. The Proclamation directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to recommend any necessary modifications to the order within 30 days of the effective date of the Proclamation and then every 60 days after that. The Proclamation further directs the Secretary of Labor to consider promulgating regulations or take other appropriate actions against those aliens who are in the U.S. or will enter the U.S. pursuant to an EB-2 immigrant visa, EB-3 immigrant visa, or an H-1B nonimmigrant visa to avoid disadvantaging U.S. workers in violation of section 212(a)(5)(A) or (n)(1) of the INA.

It is important to consider whether and how this Proclamation may affect your case or current situation. If you have questions or concerns regarding how this Proclamation may affect you, you may wish to consult with an Immigration Attorney. Attorney Rebecca Carcagno handles immigration law and is available on a consultation basis at (734) 999-0360.
