'Strong and very soon': Trump has announced a change in US immigration policy
U.S. President Donald Trump has long sought to redefine the U.S. immigration system to base immigration on merit rather than family ties. Immigration remains one of the defining accents of Trump's election campaign, aimed at re-election in November this year, writes NDTV.
US President Donald Trump reaffirmed his pledge to soon sign a "very strong" merit-based immigration act that would also take into account the interests of immigrants smuggled into the country as children (DACA, or "dreamers").
“We are going to sign the immigration deed very soon. It will be merit-based, it will be very strong, ”Trump told reporters at a news conference in the Rose Garden at the White House on Tuesday July 14th.
“We're going to work on DACA because we want to make people happy, and I'll tell you that even conservative Republicans want something to happen to DACA,” he said.
The DACA program provides work permits and other protections for people who were imported into the United States as children of undocumented parents. This affects approximately 700 young people, many of whom are of Indian or South Asian descent.
On the subject: Trump promised a 'radical change in US immigration policy'
President Trump tried to cancel the Obama era program, but the Supreme Court last month stated that the program will remain valid.
Trump said the Democrats had a chance to do something with the DACA, and they always refused it.
“They have always rejected it. They used it as a policy. I am using this to do something. We will sign a very powerful immigration act. It will be great, it will be merit-based. The country has been trying to get it for 25 or 30 years, ”he said.
“Everything will be strict at the border, but if you come legally, you can legally get into the United States, and this is very important. We will take care of the people from DACA in a very Republican way, ”the president said.
