'Trump Immigration Principles & Policy Statement'

On Oct. 8, 2017, the White House released the promised https://www.whitehouse.gov/ make it a link named 'Trump Immigration Principles & Policy Statement' which outline the Trump Administration's position on immigration. This document is broken into three parts: 1) Border Security, 2) Interior Enforcement, and 3) Merit-Based Immigration.

"The current immigration system prioritizes extended family based chain migration over skills-based immigration and does not serve the national interest. Decades of low-skilled immigration has suppressed wages, fueled unemployment and strained federal resources."

Therefore, the Administration proposed establishing a merit-based immigration system that protects U.S. workers and taxpayers, and ending chain migration, to promote financial success and assimilation for newcomers.

  1. Limit extended-family chain migration and replace it with a merit-based system that prioritizes skills and economic contributions.
  2. Establish a skills-based, points-based system for green cards;
  3. Eliminate the "Diversity Visa Lottery".
  4. Limit the number of refugees, prevent abuse of the Refugee Admissions Program.
