I am Kyla from the Philippines. I had my immigrant visa interview on the 19th of June this 2020. I was given a special interview schedule despite the embassy being closed to the public since the principal applicant (my mom) was already issued her visa last February and I will be turning 21 in August (CSPA Age is 19). The embassy kept my passport after my interview but gave me the refusal letter because the clinic has not updated my medical records since I had to undergo the sputum exam (this is the reason as to why I was not able to attend the interview with my family last February). However, they said they will approve my visa when my medical results get updated which is why they kept my passport. I would like to ask if they will be issuing my visa despite the executive order or will my family have to leave for the US this July (their visas expire on the 28th) and I'll be left here to wait until the suspension is over.
President Donald Trump said Monday that he is temporarily suspending immigration to the United States in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the "need to protect jobs." In a tweet Monday night (April 20th), the president attributed the suspension to an "attack from the Invisible Enemy" and the "need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens." Highlights (updated as of 4/21 28am PT, 2020) President Donald Trump said he will sign an executive order temporarily suspending immigration into the United States. It could come as early as Tuesday. The order will include exemptions for migrant farmworkers and immigrant healthcare workers, particularly those treating coronavirus patients, The Wall Street Journal reported. Immigration into the US has already ground to a near-halt due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it's unclear what immediate effects Trump's order would have. Anybody have any other news or opinions on this? Do you think it would have an effect on K1 fiance or spouse visas? https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-says-he-suspending-immigration-over-coronavirus-need-protect-jobs-n1188416 https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-suspend-immigration-executive-order-coronavirus https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52363852 https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-immigration-order-to-include-farm-healthcare-exceptions-2020-4
