Trump, GOP senators expected to announce new immigration plan

Trump, senators to unveil skills-based immigration bill | Democrats surge ahead on generic ballot: poll

Trump says the measure would make the system more "merit based" for skilled English speakers.

An aide to Cotton says the objective of the legislation is to raise wages and create jobs for the American worker and have the USA immigration system be more skill based. Trump promoted the RAISE Act's limitations on legal immigration as a way to protect American workers, but CNN reported that both Democrats and Republicans in Congress are likely to push back on the bill. "The RAISE Act prevents new immigrants from collecting welfare and protects USA workers from being displaced". But it would end prioritization for extended family members and adult children of residents. That bill, which was also introduced by Cotton and Perdue, argued that the current amount of people coming into the US contributes to declining wages of Americans with high school diplomas.

That bill has stalled for months in the Senate.

Trump's anti-immigration rhetoric was reiterated by Cotton who offered the same populist frame that said little but implied quite a lot. "But the benefits that immigration brings to society far outweigh their costs, and smart immigration policy could better maximize the benefits of immigration while reducing the costs", they wrote.

Refugee organizations said permanently limiting number of refugees allowed in the country goes against an American value of offering safe haven to people fleeing violence and oppression. John McCain of Arizona, have introduced their own immigration legislation that would provide a path to legalization for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the USA as children. "And if America isn't that place, someplace else will be", said Charles Kuck, an immigration attorney in Georgia and former president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

"Nothing underscores the failure of our current immigration system like the constant clamoring from the business sector for more "skilled" workers, while we import over one million immigrants each and every year", FAIR said in a statement Wednesday. As a candidate, I campaigned on creating a merit-based immigration system that protects USA workers and taxpayers - and that is why we are here today.

During a fiery daily news briefing, White House senior adviser Stephen Miller said they were also proposing to limit family-based migration to spouses and children.

It also sets a 50,000 annual cap on refugees, instead of a level mandated by the president.

"Restricting family members from joining their families in the United States will make it harder for them to become fully American", the National Immigration Forum's executive director Ali Noorani said in a statement.

It's true that the current low-skilled immigration system has its issues.
