President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday night that he would be signing an executive order to temporarily suspend immigration into the US.

In his tweet, Trump said his decision was spurred by an "attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens."
