The Executive Order Suspending Immigration Is Here

Published On: April 24, 2020Views: 398

Hello friends,

On Monday night President Trump tweeted,

“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!”

Many of you called us with questions about how this might affect your case. Yesterday afternoon, the Executive Order was announced, and as usual, the actual order has fewer teeth than the tweet suggested. The actual order suspends immigrant visas at the US consulates abroad for the next 60 days. It will not apply to cases processing in the US. For more details, feel free to watch the video below.

If you are our client and your case is affected by the order, we will be reaching out to you individually. As always, call, text, or email us with your questions. We’re here to help.

About the Author: Kate Lincoln-Goldfinch

I am the managing partner of Lincoln-Goldfinch Law. Upon graduating from the University of Texas for college and law school, I received an Equal Justice Works Fellowship in 2008, completed at American Gateways. My project served the detained families seeking asylum. After my fellowship, I entered private immigration practice. My firm offers family-based immigration, such as greencards and naturalization, deportation defense, and humanitarian cases such as asylum, U Visa, and VAWA. Everyone at Lincoln-Goldfinch Law is bilingual, has a connection to our cause, and has demonstrated a history of activism for immigrants. To us, our work is not just a job. After the pandemic we began offering bankruptcy services in addition to immigration I realized how much lack of information there is in financial literacy resources in Spanish.
