WSJ Board Blasts “Political” Suspension Of Immigration

The Hill reports:

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board blasted President Trump’s decision to suspend immigration, saying it “looks like a political distraction.”

“The order’s details haven’t been disclosed, but this looks like a political distraction that could become a major restraint on economic growth if it lasts for any length of time,” wrote the editorial board in its column Wednesday.

It noted that there is “no evidence we’ve seen that immigrants are associated with the spread of Covid-19 more than anyone else” and nearly all new visas to foreigners have already been suspended.

The original editorial is behind their paywall.
