Trump announces he will unilaterally ban all immigration to the United States

Published 1 min ago on April 20, 2020 By Bob Brigham

President Donald Trump announced Monday evening that he would be suspending all immigration into the United States.

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, Trump announced on Twitter.

Because if cutting off Chinese people is so fantastic, we need to cut off the rest of the world to be even more fantastic.

This has zero effect on the virus and the rate of infection.

It is already well rooted all over the place.

It will be blowing up in places that had demonstrations and church services and beach strolls.

This will be about as effective as tRump's porous travel ban: not much. The blow ups in infection came from Europe after the leaky China travel ban. That was in tRump's lost five weeks.

More than anything it sounds like gristle his supporters can chew on. The whole no immigrants to take our jobs thing. Never mind many of those jobs Americans weren't doing anyway and a lot of jobs lost to the Covid 19 outbreak won't be coming back anytime soon. Some will never come back.

Trump's had a hard-on to stop all entry since the get-go. Even temporarily.

Probably not LIHOP, but serious dereliction of duty of care to let it explode like that. Perhaps Warden and staff are trumpanzees and don't believe much in that sciency stuff.

Like I say elsewhere, and I now advise myself here, favour incompetence as an explanation over malfeasance in absence of evidence for the latter.

Who will he blame then, Ellen DeGeneres, Rachel Maddow, Lady Gaga or Ozzy Osbourne? "They say this virus started out in bats...Ozzy bit the head off a bat once...it's gotta be him."

Besides, who the hell is trying to emigrate to the US during this shit? I say this is 50 percent "I hate foreigners and will take any opportunity to show it," and 50 percent "I love trolling the libs."

given the sky-rocketing infection rate, the serious lack of testing,the lack of hospita beds, the sorry state of the U.S. health care system, the unbelievably inept government response, do I have to go on?

36. Election year security theater, just like what Tom Ridge revealed

CNN in August 2009 about Ridge recounting events from 2004:

"An election-eve drama was being played out at the highest levels of our government" after Osama bin Laden released a pre-election message critical of President George W. Bush, writes Ridge in his new book, "The Test of Our Times."

Attorney General John Ashcroft and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld strongly advocated raising the security threat level to "orange," even though Ridge believed a threatening message "should not be the sole reason to elevate the threat level."


Imagine if Trump had been president instead of The Apprentice host in 2004.

37. Why would anyone want to come here now?

United States: Corona virus Cases: 792,913. Deaths:42,517 No specific drug to be used, No Vaccine, No Plans for testing. What jobs? Millions unemployed.

The time to 'protect" this country was back in 2018, before he fired the US Pandemic Team and cut funding to the CDC. Time to "protect" this country was taking a possible pandemic coming our way, seriously and not calling it a "hoax" and "Fake News"

So many times after that too...including not cutting funding to the WHO.

This is Trump trying to look "tough" to his supporters. The "invisible Enemy is a virus, not the immigrants he has tried to terrorize his brain dead supporters with.

In the long run maybe it's a good idea, because with so many states lifting restrictions, if a second wave should hit, he won't be able to blame it on his favorite target : immigrants.

42. Score one more for Reichsfuhrer of the Schutzstaffel Stephen Miller.

It's unclear what mechanism he will use to suspend immigration, how long such a suspension could last or what effect this will have on the operation of US border crossings and on those who already hold green cards.

The White House declined to provide further information on the executive order Monday evening. The Department of Homeland Security didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

With stopping all immigration, and next to get your wages cut. Using medical supplies and he'll use any treatments or vaccines that way too. Praise me or else. Everything he's doing is weakening this country, and hurting the American people , unless you're very wealthy. Now he has people protesting after starving them with woefully low direct cash payments to them when needed the most.
