Trump Plan Won’t Cut Legal Immigration

According to a senor administration official, President Trump has endorsed the immigration proposal of his son-in-law Jared Kushner. That plan will not cut the overall level of legal immigration, now at the highest sustained level in our history–more than a million a year for the past twenty years.

In the past President Trump endorsed the need to cut legal immigration, saying this was necessary to protect American workers from wage suppression. The Hill reports a source saying that the impetus behind the plan was for “the GOP to appear virtuous and welcoming to immigrants rather than perpetually angry.”
