Trump Immigration Bill will Cut Legal Immigration in Half and Benefit Americans.

When Donald J. Trump ran for President he used the slogans “Make America Great Again” and “America First”.  He is following up on all of his promises.  Wednesday he announced a new immigration bill that will cut back on immigration, and benefit Americans and the American economy.  (VIDEO BELOW)

*Only one in 15 legal immigrants that enter the U.S. legally have marketable skills and can speak English.

*50% of these immigrant families go straight to our welfare roles.

*American workers are suffering, losing jobs, and getting paid less because of our outdated, 50 year old immigration policies.

The New York Times reports:

President Trump embraced legislation on Wednesday that would cut legal immigration to the United States in half within a decade by sharply curtailing the ability of American citizens and legal residents to bring family members into the country.

Arguing that the United States has taken in too many low-skilled immigrants for too long, Mr. Trump invited two Republican senators to the White House to put his weight behind their bill that would judge applicants for legal residency on the basis of education, language ability and job abilities that would benefit the country.

“This competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak English, financially support themselves and their families and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy,” Mr. Trump said.

“This legislation,” he added, “will not only restore our competitive edge in the 21st century, but it will restore the sacred bonds of trust between America and its citizens. This legislation demonstrates our compassion for struggling American families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and that puts America first.”
