Millennials Support Most of Trump's Immigration Policies — RAISE

"While most agree that our country's immigration system and policy is broken and outdated, the RAISE Act is not the solution our country needs". Democrats say they fear how Mr. Trump would employ stricter selection criteria.

The crux of the bill, sponsored by Republican Sens. The bill was introduced by co-sponsors US senators Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and David Perdue (R-Georgia).

Currently, the country's immigration policies put a priority on family unification and reserve only a relatively small number of green cards based on other factors like skills or technical proficiency.

Are immigrants holding down wages and making life more hard for workers who compete for similar work? In that sense, the proposed legislation on legal immigration complements the Trump administration's efforts to clamp down on illegal Latino immigration. Family networks have made America great for generations. "This is identity politics at its worst. That is why he wants to lower the quota for legal immigration, and why he is putting these new restrictions on them".

"Was Barbara Jordan a white nationalist?" Its central premise - that it would help American workers - is false.

The Perdue-Cotton bill, formally known as the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act, or RAISE Act, calls for trimming the extent of immigration based on family ties to spouses, children who are minors and, in limited cases, parents.

The combined number of 25,031, while the highest under Mr. Trump, is lower than any month under Mr. Obama dating back to December 2011.

Applicants would have to submit their profile (similar to Canada's Express Entry and Australia's SkillSelect). The bill is a modified version of legislation proposed in April, which would have cut immigration in half, and focuses on cutting back what is known as "chain migration"-ways of immigrating to the USA based on family ties".

Questioning legal immigration hasn't been an exclusively conservative position, however.

So, if any sizable percentage of these people suddenly felt it was in their best interests to move away, whether to a place in the USA where they could more easily disappear into the crowd, or back across some border or another to the home they left to come here, we would be the losers in more ways than we could count. Western countries have been in an unspoken competition to come across as the least uptight about immigration. Hillary Clinton, current Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and his chief lieutenant Sen. The bill also seeks to eliminate the Diversity Visa, an abrogation of the principle that America welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds.

As venture capitalist Paul Graham tweets, "This is a good time to remember that without immigration the USA will only have 5 percent of the top people in each field." . And by limiting the flood of low-skilled workers, it would encourage employers to hire, train and pay more to American workers already here. The RAISE Act favors immigrants who are younger than 30, have a doctorate, and have a job offer with a high salary, but an immigrant who is older than 35 years old, has a foreign master's degree in a STEM field, speaks good, but not excellent, English, and has a job waiting that will pay just under $100,000 a year, still wouldn't qualify. "Texas would see a large increase in illegal immigrants who have no way to enter legally". It is estimated that there are almost 12 million illegal immigrants here.

Trump's approval rating among Trump voters and Republicans has also dropped. The famous words on the Statue of Liberty represent the best of America: anyone can come here, no matter where you're from, no matter your background, no matter your education, as long as you have the work ethic to succeed, you'll do just fine.

Mr. Schumer said that exposed "a stunning hypocrisy at the core" of Mr. Trump's immigration plans.
