Trump pushes immigration plan favoring 'merit' over family

  • White House pushes

Now most of the cards are issued based on family links and diversity visa, and a small section is given to people who are professionals and highly skilled.

There are 261,765 Indians waiting for family-sponsored Green cards and 306,601 (these are principal applicants; the number is more than half a million counting dependents) in the employment based queue, according to the U.S. state department and the USA citizenship and immigration services data.

"We're here on this very lovely spring day in the Rose Garden to unveil our plan to create a fair, modern and lawful system of immigration for the United States, and it is about time", the president said, as he again tried to convince the public and lawmakers that the nation's immigration system was broken and needed to be overhauled.

Brad Parscale says President Trump has continued to keep his promise to fix the broken immigration system. Both will be done while maintaining a number of key principles, including protection of American wages, keeping the number of green cards issued per year at one million, attracting and maintaining the best, unifying immediate family, providing labor to critical industries and preserving humanitarian values. "It will be made crystal clear", Trump said.

The plan also drew concerns from hard-line groups that want to restrict immigration.

"Our plan is pro-American, pro-immigrant and pro-worker", Trump said.

"You will get more points for being a younger worker, meaning you will contribute more to our social safety net".

The reports cited statistics that US-owned companies' share of the USA automobile market has declined from 67 percent, or 10.5 million units produced and sold in the United States, in 1985, to 22 percent, or 3.7 million units produced and sold in the United States, in 2017. But despite stiff enforcement measures, one crucial faction - the immigration hard-liners who helped Trump get elected - is already wary about whether they want to remain in the inner circle if this is the starting point. And those who are American citizens will not be able to sponsor some relatives.

Under the proposed reforms, immigrants will also be "required to learn English and to pass a civics exam prior to admission", Trump said.

"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".

"That doesn't work when the goal of the person is to find a Border Patrol agent and turn yourself in".

Unfortunately, the current immigration rules allow foreign workers to substitute for Americans seeking entry-level jobs, he said.

"They also are coming over with educations that can take technical jobs and other types of jobs. Are they saying most of the people who have ever come to the United States in the history of our country are without merit, because they don't have an engineering degree?"

Trump's Thursday event also served as another opportunity to press his case for the building of his long-sought US-Mexico border wall and rally his base with the hardline rhetoric against illegal immigration that has marked his campaign trail speeches.

Countries like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and Japan don't do this.

Despite this, Trump regularly lambasts so-called "chain migration" and says he wants to reorient to allowing in people on a more competitive basis. "And we're not even taking advantage of that". Trump's proclamation said "domestic conditions of competition must be improved by reducing imports" and said a strong U.S. auto sector is vital to USA military superiority.
