A major lawsuit has been filed challenging Presidential Proclamation issued by Donald Trump suspending the entry of foreign nationals on H-1B, L, H-2B, and J temporary visas until at least December 31, 2020.  This is the first lawsuit to be filed against the Proclamation and many more are expected. The case has been filed on behalf of 174 Indian nationals.  The lawsuit is seeking the court to compel the Department of State to issue decisions on the plaintiffs pending requests for H-1B and H-4 visas and to enjoin the Department of Homeland Security from refusing entry to the United States and to declare unlawful the proclamation’s “restriction on issuing new H-1B or H-4 visas or admitting new H-1B or H-4 visa holders.   On June 22, 2020, Donald Trump issued a presidential proclamation (Proclamation 10052) that suspended the entry of foreign nationals on H-1B, L, H-2B, and J temporary visas until at least December 31, 2020.   The unexpected move of Trump administration suspending the entry of certain non-immigrants forced the families to be separated, and the foreign nationals to lose their job and the foreign nations who invested in the US on the L-1 status left with no one to manage their business and capital investments.   The complaint has been filed before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
