Will Freeze Most Immigrant Visas Including Employer Sponsored Greencards

In a rapidly developing story, the President is expected to announce far-reaching restrictions on immigration to the United States during his daily briefing later this afternoon.

As of now, informed sources (including the New York Times) are reporting that the Presidential Executive Order will not impact non-immigrant visas including H-1B and L-1 visas, but will restrict most immigrant visas including those that are employer sponsored.
