  4. Biden Administration Action: Revoked/Replaced

    February 24, 2021

    A Proclamation on Revoking Proclamation 10014

    This Biden administration policy revokes in its entirety the specific Trump-era proclamation identified in this entry, but leaves in place portions of related proclamations.

    On February 24, 2021, President Biden issued a presidential proclamation revoking Proclamation 10014 and the sections of subsequent proclamations (10052 and 10131) that extended 10014. However, he left in place other portions of 10052 and 10131, found in the Related Policy below. Thus, bans on entry by nonagricultural foreign workers in several major nonimmigrant visa categories remain in place. The Biden proclamation also ordered the Secretaries of State, Labor, and Homeland Security to issue revised guidance consistent with the new policy.
