Trump announces ‘merit-based’ immigration policy plan
Trump announces ‘merit-based’ immigration policy plan. Donald Trump has unveiled plans for a new US immigration system designed to favour younger, better-educated, English-speaking workers.
Announcing the plan, the US president said he wants to move away from the current approach that favours applicants with family ties to the US. He also pledged that border security would be tightened and a stricter line taken on asylum seekers. He boasted that his proposals would make US immigration “the envy of the modern world”
