The White house noted that the decision focused on the fact that companies hire primarily American workers.

“Many workers have suffered is not their fault because of the coronavirus, and they should not remain on the sidelines, being replaced by a new foreign workforce,” the statement reads.

The administration of the tramp also modified the rules of entry to eliminate the incentive to apply for asylum with the primary aim of producing the document on the work permit.
