The United States District Judge, Jeffery White, has temporarily lifted the United States visa ban on many work permits.
President Donald Trump administration announced a ban to limit legal immigration after the states’ outbreak of COVID-19.
The ruling, which was delivered in Oakland, California, favored members of the organization that sued the federal government.
They include the National Association of Manufacturers, TechNet, Chamber of Commerce, National Retail Federation, Intrax Inc, and a technology industry group.
During the ruling, White said his order did not extend beyond the groups comprised of “hundreds of thousands of American businesses of all sizes from a cross-section of economic sectors.”
“There must be some measure of constraint on Presidential authority in the domestic sphere in order not to render the executive an entirely monarchical power in the immigration context, an area within clear legislative prerogative,” White wrote.
An attorney of the associations who filed the case, Paul Hughes, said only the United States Chamber of Commerce, has “more than 300,000 members of all shapes and sizes across the United States.”
The ban will remain lifted while the case is being litigated.
It affected H-2B visas for nonagricultural seasonal workers; H-1B visas, used by American and Indian technology companies; L visas for managers and other key employees of multinational corporations and J visas for cultural exchanges.
White, on Tuesday, stopped the increase for citizenship and other benefits fee just three days before its start. DAILY POST
