Definitely concerned but don’t want to panic as well.

I’m pretty sure it’s temporary.. I strongly believe it will do more damage than good to the market for following

1) US death rate is almost 3 times compared to other part of the world, lot of people are aware of insurance and medical expenses in US so no one is dying to come to US in current scenario
2) if all immigration is suspended including existing on h1 - all tech firms go belly high specially when every firms are trying to support medical staffs and economy etc. that won’t leave a good relation with Trump. Also, worst case that happens outsourcing will go up with weak INR so more job losses..

His twits are more less reflection of his diluted action- he tries to portray that those are absolutely mandatory actions and must be done .... I.e I have the absolute power to reopen the economy and next he leaves everything in governor’s hand

Let’s hope you are right!

Nothing has stopped Trump from doing the unimaginable before!

I’m being optimistic, but I’m still in shock that so many people can be fired so easily and we learnt about it from a tweet. That’s what’s scaring me

One of reasons US has so many people on visas is lack of required skill set. If they let go of all people on visas, I am not sure how will they find people with the skill set to do the job. People cannot be retrained in such a short period of time. Also this might move more jobs offshore to make up for the lack of skilled resources.
