    I think the Donald answered my question...

    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!

    No clue what this means. By immigration does he mean all visas or work visas .. and what about student visas?

    Sounds like a political stunt.

    Cant imagine the fate of hundreds of thousands of H1B and other work visa holders and especially another hundreds of thousands in pipeline who are on study visa paying millions of dollars to education industry in hope of living great american dreams, if this happens..

    In a way this was coming sooner or later waiting for one downturn, there is only so much American economy can absorb, there IS overcrowding there for a while..

    Not familiar with the context (or this tweeter), so I would have taken this as self-parody to be honest.

    My guess this means any short-term visa and gateway visas for nationalities on their bad list. They probably will not cancel already issued visas if they are already in the country.

    You do understand that even Trump (especially Trump) doesn't know what he means either? And his staff are now going to have to struggle to somehow interpret that and implement a vaguely coherent policy on the fly. Sometimes, I do feel sorry for his underlings although they accepted the job...
