The Trump administration is delaying the release of new immigration rules that would give employers and businesses the right to sue workers who are denied their immigration rights, the White House said on Friday.
The new rules were put on hold in January after the Trump administration decided to release them ahead of the deadline for filing claims in the fiscal year that began July 1.
But the Trump White House did not say when it would begin releasing the rules.
Trump and his allies have long sought to roll back immigration policies enacted under President Barack Obama, but the administration has made it clear that the measures will be limited to employers.
Trump has promised to crack down on illegal immigration, and he has been critical of some of his predecessors policies.
The rules were set to be issued in early February, but have been delayed by the Labor Department.
“The Labor Department is delaying our new rules until the Labor Dept. can complete its review,” Trump tweeted last month.
“No one can get ahead of time.
This is a major delay.
Trump’s tweets were later deleted.
