Reuters reports that

"President Joe Biden [today] revoked a proclamation from his predecessor that blocked many green card applicants and temporary foreign workers from entering the United States.

Former President Donald Trump issued the bans last year, saying they were needed to protect U.S. workers amid high unemployment due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden rejected that reasoning in a proclamation on Wednesday rescinding the visa bans. The Democratic president said they had prevented families from reuniting in the United States and harmed U.S. businesses."

Here is the Biden Proclamation on Revoking Proclamation 10014 | The White House."
