President Joe Biden has cancelled previous orders from the former President Donald Trump’s government that reduced the number of new work visas for immigrants.
According to the order provided by the White House on Wednesday, Biden said, “The suspension of entry imposed in Proclamation 10014… does not advance the interests of the United States.
“To the contrary, it harms the United States, including by preventing certain family members of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents from joining their families here.”
The ban included H-1B visas for work in high-tech industries and a range of others for low-skill workers, interns, teachers, and company transfers.
Recall that Biden’s immigration bill was revealed on Thursday for the legislative process, according to senior White House officials.
A senior administration official said, “This was a day-one commitment of the president, and it is his vision of what it takes to fix the system.”
According to reports, two Democratic legislators, California Congresswoman Linda Sanchez and New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, would present the bill to the House of Representatives and the Senate, respectively.
