President Trump To Unveil 'Merit Based' Immigration Plan

"Though we are glad that the administration is considering additional assistance", Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union, tells the Journal, "such temporary solutions are not sufficient to address the permanent damage the trade war has inflicted on agricultural export markets".

Of course, some on the left will characterize this, as one Vox reporter did, as "keeping the poors out", when in reality it would merely bring US immigration policy into alignment with what the rest of the developed world does. "Now they'll have a chance", Trump said.

Standing in the White House Rose Garden, Trump spoke unfavorably of family-based and lottery-based immigration.

The plan was developed by Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, and Stephen Miller, an adviser known for his hard line on immigration issues.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump's emphasis on merit-based immigration is "condescending" because families have merit, too.

In order to ensure proper border security infrastruction, without getting caught up in political debates, the White House wants to establish trust fund to best ensure financial resources are properly available. The new system will also make it impossible to sponsor some categories of relatives. But those talks collapsed over White House demands to curb legal immigration and a dramatic Senate showdown in which lawmakers rejected three rival proposals that aligned with the "four pillars" immigration plan Trump unveiled that year. They use a points-based system that prioritizes visas for certain kinds of workers.

As a result of the "broken" rules, the annual Green Card flow is mostly low-wage and low-skilled, Trump rued, adding that the newcomers compete for jobs against the most vulnerable Americans and put pressure on social safety net and generous welfare programmes.

But, while foreign-branded autos are popular in the United States, many automakers have championed their US-based manufacturing operations in places like Alabama, Kentucky and SC.

Asked about this omission, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday, "Because it's a serious program, it's not included.

Certainly something to discuss and look at and address but this plan is focused on fixing a different part of the immigration system".

Senate immigration hawks responded with guarded optimism to the general tone of Trump's push for immigration.

A group of immigrants from Central American seeking asylum walk along the U.S. -Mexico border fence. The president also said that immigrants would have to be financially self-sufficient in order to "protect benefits from American citizens".

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for lower immigration rates, welcomed a "very positive effort" that was "undermined by the embrace of the current very high level of immigration". "His (Trump) policies have made things dramatically worse". If the point here was to pressure Democrats to come to the table, the White House could have at least emphasized the element of America's broken immigration system that's in most urgent need of fix.

Quoting senior administration officials, NBC News has reported that President Donald Trump will roll out a two-pronged immigration proposal on Thursday that would make sweeping changes to the legal immigration system.

Immigrants' List, a political action committee, said the president's plan was meant to "rile up bigoted sentiment about immigrants".

"It needs a top-to-bottom, root-and-branch reform". Lindsey Graham, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he plans to introduce an immigration reform bill that would require immigrants to apply for USA asylum in their home countries instead of at the border.
