Trump, senators to unveil skills-based immigration bill | Democrats surge ahead on generic ballot: poll

In February, Cotton and Perdue introduced a bill that would have restricted immigration for family members of legal permanent residents. The proposal got the backing of President Trump Wednesday in a joint press conference with the senators. First time politician Trump beat back 16 other Republican challengers over nine gruelling months of campaigning with his single minded devotion to beating back low grade immigration.

"This legislation demonstrates our compassion for struggling American families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and puts America first", Trump said, speaking straight to his most loyal voters.

Trump, Perdue and Cotton argued on Tuesday that low-skilled and unskilled immigration into the United States has depressed wages.

That's Tom Cotton, 39, son of a cattle farmer, Harvard law grad and former McKinsey consultant who's also served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Immigration advocacy groups are opposed, as are many economists who say the nation, with an aging population and low fertility rate, should be encouraging an influx of younger workers to spur economic growth.

The biggest update to the bill centers on the skilled workers seeking to immigrant to the USA permanently.

Irving did talk about the meeting to several other teammates, a league source told ESPN's Dave McMenamin . The Heat and Spurs are well-respected organizations with the kind of stability Cleveland lacks.

Under the new bill, the United States would prioritise high-skilled immigrants by setting up a merits-based system similar to those used by Canada and Australia.

"That is why we are here today: Merit-based", Trump said, joined at the White House Roosevelt Room podium by the bill's sponsors, Sens.

No longer offer green card preference to the extended family or adult children of immigrants already living legally in the U.S. Spouses, children under 18 and sick parents would still be given preference. Tom Cotton (AR) and David Perdue (GA) released an updated version of a bill that overhauls the country's legal immigration system, pushing forward the president's agenda to limit the number of foreigners entering the United States. The two senators said that the bill would cut overall immigration by around 50 percent after ten years, from 1 million new immigrants a year to roughly 500,000.

"Can they support themselves and their families financially?" Isn't it time we think about the most vulnerable, hardest working Americans?

Mr Trump has long vowed to crack down on the USA immigration system. "After dealing with this issue for more than a decade, I know that when you restrict legal labor to employers it incentivizes cheating".

It also sets a 50,000 annual cap on refugees, instead of a level mandated by the president. They are routinely cheated out of wages, and are held "virtually captive" by employers, a 2013 Southern Poverty Law Center report found.
