Biden lifts Trump’s U.S. travel ban for a range of foreigners


US President Joe Biden canceled a decree signed by his predecessor Donald Trump and restricting entry to the country for certain categories of foreign citizens.

Biden’s statement, which was published by the White House, emphasizes that the ban “did not advance the interests of the United States, but, on the contrary, caused damage to the country.” It also notes the impossibility for US citizens to unite with their families and difficulties for holders of the status of legal permanent residents.

Biden stressed that Trump’s decision harmed “industries that draw on talent from around the world.” He also noted that people who won a green card in the annual lottery could not enter the country.

Recall that the decree in question was signed by Trump in April 2020. He banned the entry of “immigrants posing a risk to the US labor market” during the coronavirus pandemic.
