NewsFlash! Court Partially Blocks Enforcement of Executive Order Banning Entry of Certain Nonimmigrant Workers

Today, a federal district court in California issued a preliminary injunction, blocking the enforcement of President Trump’s June 22, 2020 executive order that bans entry of certain nonimmigrants in H, L, or J status.  However, this injunction only applies to the plaintiffs in the pending case, which include the National Association of Manufacturers, Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America, National Retail Federation, Technet, and Intrax, Inc. Per the court order, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which includes the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). and the U.S. Department of State, which operates all U.S. embassies and consulates, are barred “…from engaging in any action that results in the non-processing or non-issuance of applications or petitions for visas in the H, J, and L categories which, but for [the executive order], would be eligible for processing and issuance, with respect to the Plaintiffs and the members of the Plaintiff associations.”
