Latest New York Immigration Policies
The most recent initiative announced by President Donald Trump regarding immigration will include added security at U.S. borders and will boost the requirements for immigrants coming to this country legally to work and live. Immigrants will soon be required to demonstrate marketable skills and to pass an English-language proficiency examination and a civics exam. Aspiring immigrants must also meet minimum educational requirements to be considered for entry into the U.S. This represents a significant shift from previous family-oriented immigration policies.
No Change in Net Immigration
The proposed plan is not expected to gain support in the U.S. Congress. It includes funding for more of the border wall that was a cornerstone of Trump’s presidential campaign. More importantly, however, it does not provide for any resolution to the status of participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, who are more commonly referred to as Dreamers. This additions and omissions are likely to prevent widespread support for the plan, which also does nothing to reduce the number of legal immigrants allowed into the U.S. on an annual basis.
