Changes to U.S. immigration system during the coronavirus pandemic

In response to the coronavirus outbreak, the White House has made sweeping changes to the country’s immigration apparatus, altering daily operations and disrupting the lives of thousands, says CNN.

Since early March, there have been at least a dozen changes, ranging from postponing immigration hearings to pausing deportation flights to certain countries and suspending refugee admissions. The administration is also trying to push some of its most restrictive policies amidst this crisis that have struggled to be put into practice, including blocking entry to asylum seekers.
