White House Further Restricts U.S. Immigration in Response to COVID-19
Immigration Practice Group, MVA COVID Resource Center
June 2020

Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., the Trump Administration has issued a variety of Executive Orders aimed at restricting U.S. Immigration. Yesterday, the White House announced the continuation of its order suspending the entry of certain immigrants as well as announced additional restrictive measures directed at suspending the entry of nonimmigrant workers. Specifically, this latest Proclamation will suspend the entry of new H-1B, H-2B, L-1, certain J-1 nonimmigrants, and their accompanying dependents unless they qualify for one of the limited stated exemptions. The application of the ban to Canadian nationals seeking admission in these categories, who are not required to obtain a visa to enter the United States, is still unclear.


Forgiveness is Divine: Insight for PPP Borrowers to Maximize Loan Forgiveness
Mike Miller and Kathryn Hesman
June 2020, MVA COVID-19 Resource Center

As businesses that have received funds (“Borrowers”) under the CARES Act’s Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) execute their COVID-19 survival strategies, it is important that these survival strategies are designed to take advantage of PPP program’s defining feature for Borrowers: loan forgiveness. The PPP provides that loans made under the PPP (“PPP Loans”) may be forgiven if the Borrower meets certain criteria for the use of the PPP Loan proceeds and maintenance of employee headcount and compensation levels. The forgiveness regime is governed by Section 1106 of the CARES Act, Interim Final Rules that have been issued by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) thereunder (including the one Interim Final Rule, issued on April 2, 2020 (“IFR #1”) and another Interim Final Rule, issued on May 22, 2020 (“IFR #14) that each specifically deal with PPP Loan forgiveness), the forgiveness application posted to the Treasury Department website on May 16, 2020 (the “Forgiveness Application”) and the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (the “PPPFA”).
