Trump backs plan that would curb legal immigration to 'protect American workers'

Trump backs plan that would curb legal immigration to 'protect American workers' | 02 Aug 2017 | President Donald Trump threw his support Wednesday behind legislation that looks to curb the level of legal immigration into the United States by proposing a skills-based immigration system. Trump backed the effort from Republican Sens. David Perdue and Tom Cotton in a speech at the White House...Top White House aides have been working with Perdue and Cotton on the bill that -- if passed -- would dramatically remake the current immigration system, which allows a number of ways to bring family members to the US along with job-based visas. Trump cast the proposal as a way to protect American workers by reducing unskilled immigration and creating a merit-based system that grades possible immigrants based on their ability to work in the United States.
