Kobach: The Immigration System Needs to Protect American Workers and Taxpayers

Live Stream || Trump, Senators to Propose Lowering Legal Immigration

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

"This is probably our third or fourth visit to the Oval Office to work with President Trump", Cotton told reporters.

But the legislation faces an uphill climb to get through Congress where some senior Republicans back comprehensive immigration reform, not a tough crackdown.

It also proposes to end the "diversity visa lottery" under which the United States grants 50,000 green cards annually to people randomly selected from countries with low rates of immigration to the US. It's inspired by the systems now used in Canada and Australia, Perdue's office said. And the bill caps refugee levels at 50,000 per year.

"Over years, that has massively deskilled the migrant flow into America and produced all of those effects I'm talking about", Miller said.

The Associated Press reports how "the president is mischaracterizing numerous immigrants coming to the United States as low-skilled and dependent on government aid". and quotes Pew Research figures: The Pew Research Center said in 2015 that 41 percent of immigrants who had arrived in the past five years held a college degree, much higher than the 30 percent of non-immigrants in the United States.

President Donald Trump is not exactly known for consistent policy positions, but two of his most prominent goals are working against one another: His promise to push economic growth toward the 4% mark while at the same time cracking down harshly on immigration.

Republicans across the ideological spectrum on immigration have long talked about retooling the green card system, which concerns permanent residents, to focus less on family ties and more on useful skills.

The fugitives were between 18 and 30, facing charges ranging from disorderly conduct to attempted murder. The sheriff did acknowledge the jail needed improvements, including more monitors and cameras.

Limit the number of refugees admitted annually to 50,000 (compared to the 110,000 refugees then-President Barack Obama announced he would allow in last year).

Legal immigrants are coming into the country at historic lows, Bier said.

The proposal "ends chain migration", Trump said, referring to the preference for uniting family members in the current immigration system.

"Can they support themselves and their families financially?"

Critics of the bill also attacked its revisions to family-based immigration, arguing that such measures will dissuade skilled immigrants who would otherwise want to come to the US.

With respect to American taxpayers, the current system forces taxpayers to pay for billions of dollars in welfare benefits given to immigrants. They are routinely cheated out of wages, and are held "virtually captive" by employers, a 2013 Southern Poverty Law Center report found. To help make immigration great again - to ensure immigration serves the American people and our national priorities - the RAISE Act would be a fine place to start.
