Trump Proposes Stiff Curbs On Legal Immigration

U.S. President Donald Trump is seeking to enact a "merit-based" immigration system, with a preference for English speakers, essentially reforming the existing green card system. Speaking at a rally of his supporters in Huntington, West Virginia, on August 3, Trump backed efforts to introduce a points-based system for obtaining residency cards that favors skilled workers, with the goal of halving the number of legal migrants admitted to the country.
