Voters Approve Trump-Supported Immigration Bill

Rather the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act (or the RAISE Act) proposes a points-based system of qualification for employment visas, with preference given to English speakers and "skilled" workers. If passed, the RAISE Act would screen visa applicants using a point system based on a person's age, education, English ability, job offer salary, investments and more. But it's not even close to ranking among the biggest issues facing the USA immigration system, which is why Miller's explanation raised so many eyebrows. But having Congress or Washington bureaucrats pick a number - in this case, an absurdly inadequate 140,000 - of how many immigrant workers US employers can hire, and try to dictate what kind of workers those employers really need, is foolish. Tom Perez, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, averred that "Instead of catching criminals, Trump wants to tear apart communities and punish immigrant families that are making valuable contributions to our economy".

Trump also falsely made this claim: "They're not going to come in and just immediately go and collect welfare".

"I'm not against immigration, just illegal immigration".

Eighty-one percent of self-identified Trump voters now approve of the job Trump is doing, down 5 points in a week. They don't argue for "open borders" as such. CNN found 62 percent disapproval of Trump on health care, 55 percent disapproval on immigration, 61 percent on foreign policy and 54 percent on "helping the middle class".

Assuming the points assigned for each criterion do not change, the result would be more highly skilled than low-skilled workers qualifying to enter the U.S. as permanent residents.

Yes, the bill would reduce the overall number of immigrants to the United States by half, which would have the effect of increasing the proportion of immigrants selected based on what the bill's proponents call "merit". Other research suggests it can and does hurt the least-educated or otherwise disadvantaged Americans.

The system certainly seems to favor people other than the exhausted, the poor, the "huddled masses yearning to breath free" who are beckoned in the poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty - the kind of hard-working immigrants to whom many Americans trace their heritage. Well, Democrats are supposed to be anxious about poverty and inequality.

An even more sinister bipartisan effort is under way in relation to Trump's proposal for sweeping tax cuts for the wealthy and corporate America.

Immigrants make easy scapegoats, a truth the president exploited all the way from Trump Tower to the Oval Office.

It's a good question. U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Forest Hills), whose district encompasses Pittsburgh, McKeesport and New Kensington, says this bill goes against what Pittsburgh and the region are trying to accomplish. On the other hand, that means roughly half of them weren't. Some 6 percent of Mexican immigrants in 2014 had a college degree or higher, and 15 percent of Asian immigrants had less than a high school degree.

Note that one reason for the impressive rise in educational standards is that illegal immigration has fallen sharply over the past 10 or so years. Of these, 750,000 received work permits and deportation relief through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy that President Barack Obama created.

I don't want to limit legal immigration.

It's too soon to say that the issue of low-skill immigration has gone away.

I've also witnessed first-hand the failure of government's attempts to put bureaucratic quotas in the way of immigration driven by the marketplace and family relationships.

Another analysis, shared first with CNN, found that blocking low-skilled immigrants from entering or staying in the country could also have vast ramifications for small business creation in the U.S.

Following the round of recent polls reflecting Trump's slipping support, the president has resumed his time-tested campaign tactic of questioning the validity of the polls.
