Best of all, the plan does NOT require approval from Congress. Trump’s goal is to cut off the incentives that bring hordes of unskilled, uneducated, welfare-dependent migrants, both legal and illegal pouring across America’s borders. The new plan could also negatively affect some 20 million migrants currently living in America.
OANN Trump campaigned on reforming the immigration system so qualifications to enter the country would be based more on merit than democrat-desired quotas, thanks to Ted Kennedy’s Immigration Reform bill of 1965, which limited immigration from European countries and opened the floodgates to mass immigration from third world countries.
Today, immigrants, both legal and illegal drain 33% more welfare and 60% more food stamps from the economy than American citizens do. Under Trump’s plan, this will stop.
