President Donald Trump announced late Monday night that he would temporarily halt all immigration due to the Chinese coronavirus.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 21, 2020
This is a tremendous move. VDARE has castigated the GOP for weeks for doing nothing about immigration in response to the pandemic. Trump just did exactly what’s needed. Millions of Americans are out of work and foreigners could easily bring a second wave of the virus to our shores. There is no reason we should let in hundreds of thousands of immigrants at this time.
This proposal signals that Trump is serious about putting America First. He may have very well won re-election tonight. Trump forces Democrats to defend foreigners against the interests of citizens. Trump makes immigration the focus of the coronavirus response. Trump makes a more extensive moratorium, an idea long championed by VDARE, a realistic possibility.
This is a huge victory for the cause of immigration patriotism and will reverberate for years to come.
Buckle up your seat belts—2020 is going to be a wild ride.
