On Monday, President Donald Trump announced that he would be suspending all immigration into the United States by executive order.
While his announcement was predictably met with enthusiasm from his base voters, many others on social media did not take well to Trump’s proposal.
Hours after Trump talks about parts of the country being ready to re-open, he tweets that he's temporarily suspending immigration into U.S.

On Trump’s latest “look at me!” anti-immigration order:
Apart from all the other problems with the spasm, the US itself is *the* COVID hotspot of the world. Four times as many cases as next-closest country, and fastest growing.
Immigration is the problem? Please.

I really didn't think you cared about the health and safety of immigrants but it's nice to see you looking out for them right now.
