With Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, the president unveiled a new immigration reform plan.
President Trump unveiled a plan for a new immigration system at the White House with Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA). The legislation would prioritize immigrants with productive skills who also speak English.
Trump said that the current immigration system “has placed substantial pressure on American workers, taxpayers, and community resources.”
“Among those hit the hardest in recent years have been immigrants and, very importantly, minority workers competing for jobs against brand new arrivals, and it has not been fair to our people,” he continued.
The president’s new plan would “end chain migration” in addition to bringing in immigrants with English language skills. Trump believes these immigrants would add to the U.S. economy instead of driving down wages.
