Cryptocurrency-friendly congressman Paul Gosar tweeted that all immigration should be halted until all American citizens who want to get to work have jobs.

President Donald Trump said Monday that he will temporarily suspend all immigration into the United States in the latest in a series of measures to close the country's borders amid the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Reportedly, millions of Americans are suffering from unemployment after companies laid off employees amid nationwide lockdowns to stop the contagion.

But Trump is comfortable with his unique style of politics, making a vague but major announcement on Twitter, knowing it will galvanize his base and create headlines.

The number of people killed in the United States due to COVID-19 has reached 42,094, and more than 7,80,000 cases have been confirmed.

But the tweet on Monday from the real estate mogul-turned-world leader - a relentless champion of the need to squelch illegal immigration - went a step farther.

The number of visas issued to foreigners overseas looking to immigrate to the United States has declined by about 25%, to 4,62,422 in the 2019 fiscal year from 6,17,752 in 2016.

Dozens of governors have issued stay-at-home orders to prevent further infections, although Trump on April 16 said that the country would now be moving into the next phase of managing the virus. Democrat lawmakers have condemned the decision, accusing Mr Trump of using the crisis to achieve his long-term policy of curbing immigration. "He's been saying all along that things are getting better, that the number of coronavirus cases is slowing, that the United States is getting ready to open up for business, and now all of a sudden, he appears to be saying things are so dire that we need to halt all immigration".

The Supreme Court has in recent months offered several significant victories to the Trump administration in cases relating to immigration.
