Should Immigration Into The United States Be Merit-Based? [POLL]
On Wednesday, President Trump unveiled the RAISE Act which would overhaul the U.S. Immigration System. If passed, the number of immigrants allowed into the country would drop and the system would become merit-based according to FOX.
The legislation, called The Raise Act, aims to replace the current permanent employment-immigration framework, which has been characterized by the Trump administration as a “lottery system,” with what it is calling a skill-based system that operates on the basis of individual merits. The new competitive application process will favor those who possess skills that will benefit the U.S. economy, can speak english and are able to financially support themselves and their families, Trump said.
