Washington Watcher II called Trump's immigration moratorium, the temporary shutdown of legal immigration in response to COVID's economic devastation, a "huge win for America".

The measure would have expired last night at midnight, but Trump DID renew it:  President Trump Extends Freeze On Many Worker Visas, by Franco Ordoñez, NPR,  December 31, 2020.
