Trump Proposes 7O-Point Immigration Plan

President Trump has unveiled a 70-point plan to reform immigration policy. The White House said these steps must accompany any legislative action to give permanent legal status to illegal aliens in the DACA category. As reported by The Washington Times, the plan would “ensure major changes to border security, interior enforcement, and the legal immigration system.” A senior White House official stated that “Anything that is done addressing the status of DACA recipients needs to include these three reforms and solve these three problems. If you don’t solve these problems then you’re not going to have a secure border, you’re not going to have a lawful immigration system, and you’re not going to be able to protect American workers.”
