Trump to unveil new proposals on immigration, limiting family-based petitions

Republican senators revealed that President Donald Trump plans to unveil his views on how immigration laws should be changed in the country in the coming days.

Reportedly in the works are future proposals to boost visas for highly-skilled workers seeking to immigrate to the U.S., as well as to limit family-based petitions, and those addressing the recent surge of Central American migrants at the border — by changing polices on how to send people back, processing them quicker, having resources at the border to process and asylum reforms.

Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and conservative immigration adviser Stephen Miller have been reportedly working with other white house officials on the proposals in the last couple of months.

Republican Senator John Cornyn and John Barasso said Trump would present these proposals in a speech as soon as this week.

But these proposals would need enough support from the Democrats to advance in Congress.

    Trump new immigration plan will be on Merit based System.The new plan will be base on Job skill it would rise from 12% to 57%. Family base will drop from 66% to 33%.Claim for assylum will drop from 22% to 10%. Pelosi does not like Trump plan said ‘Condecending” Dems, want illiterate,low skills, uneducated dependent of immigrant(illegal or legal).Reason; Dems want them to be on Government welfare and in the future they will become a Dems voters. Another Trump plan is should pass English proficiency test, passed health screen, and criminal background check. Those illegals who cross the Mexico-US border has literacy rate of grade 3, most of them does not read nor write, and never speak English. Our Kababayan has all the advantages.,DACA with College degree and has a job are guaranteed to get an immigration status.The only problem, Trump plan won’t PASS on the Democrat control House. Democrat will block Trump immigration plan.
