The United States President, Donald Trump has said that immigration into the country has been suspended on a temporal basis. This was to prevent the spread of the corona virus disease. According to reports, the United States was one of the worst-hit countries by the virus.
In his words, he referred to the virus as an “Invisible Enemy” which has killed more than 42,000 people in the country. “In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!” he said.
He also noted that there was the urgent need to protect American jobs because of the over 22 million people that are out of employment due to the state lockdown.
Meanwhile, her majesty, the Queen of Britain celebrated her ninety-fourth birthday. The usual traditional gun salute was however called off due to the ravaging corona virus disease. The monarch will be marking the anniversary with her ninety-eight year husband at the Windsor Castle, London.
