Steve Yale-Loehr on the Presidential Proclamation

April 23, 2020 (1 min read)

"Stephen Yale-Loehr, an immigration law expert at Cornell University, said the exemptions would make the order more legally defensible, but that the logic behind the policy was still flawed. “First, if the purpose of the proclamation is to protect against the coronavirus, it makes no sense to temporarily suspend entry of people applying for green visas but not those coming temporarily to the United States. Second, if the purpose is to protect U.S. workers, it also makes no sense to exclude temporary foreign workers from the proclamation,” he wrote in an e-mail." - Adrian Morrow, The Globe and Mail, Apr. 23, 2020
