The president of the United States, Donald Trump, is preparing to reveal a profound change in the American immigration system that will place value on the merit, education and command of English over family reunification or asylum. The reform has been designed by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and members of the Republican and Democratic parties have already been informed at the Capitol.
If the immigration reform is approved – something that the congress should do, even if the proposal comes from the White House – it will facilitate the granting of visas and residence permits (<green cards>) to those foreigners who have higher education, speak English and get job offers from American companies.
In addition, it will be easier for foreign students who study at American universities to stay in the United States. and do not return to their countries, so as not to lose talent.
If Trump's proposal is set and approved at the Capitol, the quota of 1.1 million entry and residence permits will be maintained, but family reunification will be limited to one third of those visas. At this time, according to the White House, only 12% of immigrants get entry permits because of their academic merit or excellence in work, compared to 67% in Canada.
The objective of Trump is that more than half of the green cards are granted on merit, scholarships or job offers, and that those given for family reunification, asylum or refugees are reduced.
Although the USA has no official language and has more Spanish-speaking citizens than Spain itself, Trump will also propose that those who demonstrate good English management have preference at the time of being accepted as residents.
This reform does not solve the problem of the <dreamers>, the children of illegal immigrants arrived in the USA. of children and who are in an irregular situation.
The president will make his announcement in the White House on the afternoon of this Thursday, accompanied by the staff of his government. . (tagsToTranslate) trump (t) migration (t) usa
