President Trump has called for an end to the Chain Migration and Visa Lottery saying US does not get the finest in these.
As merit based system will replace the lottery system, hopefuls in India have a reason to cheer about. However bringing in aged parents from their homelands will now pose a problem.
Voicing keenness of retaining jobs for its own citizens he said “We are all working in an effort to develop an immigration reform plan that will serve the interest of the American workers and the American families and safety…”
“Chain migration is a total disaster that threatens our security and economy and provides a gateway for terrorism” he added.
Trump underscored having a border wall to “keep out the deadly drug dealers, dangerous traffickers and violent criminal cartels”.
Mexico is having a tremendous problem with crime and we want to keep it out of our country.
Trump was speaking in a meeting at the White House attended by Vice Pres Mike Pens, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Senators Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), and John Cornyn (R-Texas), and Senior adviser Stephen Miller
