Trump announces plan to reshape US immigration policy
Thank you very much everybody please. Thank you. Thank you very much. You were here on this very beautiful spring day in the Rose Garden to unveil our plan to create a modern metal, awful system of immigration for the United States, and it’s about time. If it dropped it, I will transform America’s immigration system into the pride of our nation and the Envy of the modern world. Our proposal bills upon our nation’s Rich history of immigration, strengthening the bonds of citizenship that bind us together as a national family throughout our history. We have probably welcome newcomers to our Shores out of many people, many places we are forged, one people and one nation under God, and we’re very proud of it. We share the same home, we share the same Destiny and we pledge allegiance to the same rate. American flag policies have turbocharged our economy. Now we must Implement an immigration system that will allow our citizens to prosper for generations to come. Today we are presenting a clear contrast: Democrats are proposing open borders, lower wages and, frankly, Lawless chaos. We are proposing an immigration plan., the jobs, wages and safety of American workers. First hour proposal is pro-american, pro-immigrant and pro worker. It’S just common sense. It will help all of our people, including millions of devoted immigrants, to achieve the American dream. We are this afternoon by a tremendous number of people from the house or Senate and my cabinet, and I love you all, but I won’t introduce you all because of here all day long but you’re. All here are planning Cheves, two critical goals. First, it stops illegal immigration and fully secures the border, and second, it establishes a new legal immigration system that protects American wages, promotes American values and a tracks the best and brightest from all around the world. The proposal begins with the most complete and effective borders. Pretty package ever assembled by our country or any other country for that matter so important. This plan was developed, I’m sorry to say by politicians. We have a lot of politicians, but you respect the people in you know the people that have developed this plan. It was designed with significant input from our great law enforcement professionals to do tell what they need to make our border, which is 100 % operational esecure, 100 %. Everyone agrees that the physical infrastructure on the border and the ports of Entry, Lively, underfunded and woefully inadequate. We scan only a small fraction of the vehicles, goods and all of the other things coming across, including and sadly, the drugs pour across our border. We’Re going to stop it. Investment in technology will ensure we scan 100 % of everything coming through curbing the flow of drugs Contraband, while speeding up legal trade and commerce. It’S the most heavily traded monetarily border anywhere in the world, and it’s not even close to make sure that we are constantly making upgrades we need. Our proposal creates a permanent and self-sustaining border security trust fund. This will be financed by the fees and revenues generated at the border crossings itself. Importantly, we’re already building the wall, and we should have close to four hundred miles built by the end of next year and probably even more than it’s going up very rapidly, and I want to thank the Army. Corps of Engineers are doing a fantastic job on the wall and that’s a wall that is desperate. They needed as we close the gaps in our physical framework. We must also close the gaps in our legal framework. Critical to ending the Border crisis is removing All In tips for smuggling, women and children. Current law, women, children people have no idea how bad it is unless you’re there, and unless you are a member of law enforcement, they see it every day and they can’t believe what they see. Current law in federal court rulings and courage, criminal organizations to smuggle children across the border, the tragic result is that 65 % of all border crossings this year we’re either minors or adults traveling with minors. Our plan will change the law to stop the flood of child smuggling and to humanely reunite unaccompanied children with their families back home and rapidly as soon as possible. We must also restore the Integrity of our broken Asylum system. Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those leading government persecutes. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum-seekers are being displaced by those lodging. Frivolous claims he’s a frivolous claims to gain admission in country. Asylum abuse also strange. Our public school systems are hospitals and local shelters using funds that we should and that have to go to elderly veterans at risk, youth, Americans in poverty and those in genuine need of protection, while using the funds that should be going to them. And that shouldn’t happen, and it’s not going to happen in a very short. Of have to get this approved my plan expedite relief for legitimate asylum-seekers by screening out the meritless claims. If you have a proper claim, you will quickly be admitted. If you don’t, you will promptly be returned home crucially hours plan closes loopholes in federal law to make clear that gang members and criminals are inadmissible. These are some of the worst people anywhere in the world, MS-13 and others inadmissible, not coming in we’re taking them out. All the time by the thousands a year, but they come in, they are no longer admissible and four criminals already here will ensure they are Swift. Deportation we will keep our community safe. Americans can have complete and total confidence that, under this plan, that borders will finally be fully and totally secured, and I know a number of our Republican friends and others Lindsey. I see you sitting right there and Steve you’re working on a plan and immediate plan. A smaller plan, but a variable I plan to stop at as of this afternoon so as fast as you can get something done. This is the big beautiful ball plan, but we need something very quickly and if you can get it done, that would be fantastic. Thank you appreciate your working on it, a topic of less discussion in National media, but a vital importance to our country is our legal hydration system itself. Our plan includes a sweeping modernization of our dysfunctional legal immigration process. It is totally dysfunctional. The system will finally Behr transparent and promote equality and opportunity for all. Every year we admit 1.1 million immigrants as permanent legal resident use, green card holders get lifetime authorization to live and work here and a five-year path to American citizenship. This is the most prized citizenship anywhere in the world by-far. Currently, 66 % of legal immigrants come here on the basis of random chance, they’re admitted solely because they have a relative in the United States and it doesn’t really matter who that relative is another. 21 % of immigrants are wish you’d, either by random lottery or because they’re fortunate enough to be selected for humanitarian relief. Random selection is contrary to American values and blocks out many qualified potential immigrants from around the world to have much to contribute. Well, countless and you wouldn’t believe how many countries like Canada create a clear path for top talent. America does not, under the senseless rules of the current system, we’re not able to give preference to a doctor, a researcher, a student who graduated number one in his class from the finest colleges in the world. Anybody would not able to take care of it. We’Re not able to make those incredible breakthroughs if somebody graduated top of their class from the bed College. Sorry go back to your country. We want to keep them here. Companies are moving offices to other countries, because our immigration rules prevent them from retaining highly skilled, and even if I might totally brilliant people, we discriminate against genius. We discriminate against Brilliance. We want any more once we get there fast and we hope to get it passed. As soon as possible, some of the most skill students that are world-class universities are going back home because they have no do relatives to sponsor them here in the United States, and that’s the only way we want these exceptional students and workers to stay and flourish and Thrive in America as a result of our broken rules, the annual Green Card flow is mostly low-wage and low-skilled. Newcomer’S compete for jobs against the most vulnerable Americans and put pressure on our social safety net and generous welfare programs. Only 12 % of illegal immigrants are selected based on skill or based on Merit in countries like Canada or Australia, and New Zealand and others. That number is closer to 60 and even 70 and 75 per-cent. In some cases, the biggest change we make is to increase the proportion of Highly skilled immigration from 12 % to 57 % and we’d like to even see if we can go higher. This will bring us in line with other country and make us globally competitive. At the same time, we prioritize the immediate family of new Americans, spouses and children, the love ones. You choose to build a life with we prioritise and we have to do that. They go right to the front of the line right to the front of the line where they should be America’s last major overhaul of our legal admissions policy was 54 years ago. Think of that sell a major update and that’s what this is. Marriage system and a hearts system is long overdue. The millions of legal immigrants who have come to America over the past half-century are now cherished members of our national family going forward. It is their interests and in their interests and their children’s interests to adopt a green card system that promotes a r i using standard of living for all of our citizens. Three and four new jobs at the end of last year went to Americans previously out of the workforce. Our economy is better, probably than a has been in the history of our country and because of that great economy were able to do things that nobody ever thought possible before and that’s what we’re going to do for immigration. Finally, wages are rising, but our current immigration system works at cross-purposes placing downward pressure on wages for the working class, which is what we don’t want to do. Last year we also passed historic Criminal Justice Reform and we had tremendous backing bipartisan from Democrats. Republicans, conservatives, liberals and knew where this come about. Americans with criminal Rock are getting a second chance at life and higher numbers than ever before. Unfortunately, the current immigration rules allow foreign workers to substitute for America seeking entry level job so far, and workers are coming in and they’re taking the jobs that would normally go to American workers. America’S immigration system should bring in people who will expand opportunity for strive lower-income. Americans not to compete with those low-income Americans, our proposal duty to those living here today, while ensuring America remains a welcoming country to immigrants joining us tomorrow, and we want immigrants coming in. We cherish the open door that we want to create for our country, but a big proportion of those immigrants must come in through Merritt and skill. The White House plan makes no change to the number of green cards allocated each year, but instead of admitting people threw random chance, we will establish simple Universal criteria for admission to the United States, no matter where in the world, you are born, no matter who your Relatives are, if you were become an American citizen. It will be clear exactly what standard we ask you to achieve. It will be made crystal clear. This will increase the diversity of immigration flows into our country. We will replace the existing Green Card categories with a new Visa bill – America Visa, which is what we all want to hear like Canada and so many other modern countries. We create and easy-to-navigate points based selection system. You will get more points for being a younger worker, meaning you will contribute more to our social safety net. You will get more points for having is a valuable skill and offer of employment and advanced education or a plan to create jobs. We lose people that want to start companies and, in many cases, they’re forced to leave our country go back usually to the country where they came from and they’ll start up. Companies and some of those companies are Hmong. The biggest and most successful companies today in the world, they could have started them right here in the United States, where they wanted to do it. In the first place now, they’ll have a chance. Priority will also be given to hire wage workers, ensuring we never undercut. American labor to protect benefits for American citizens, immigrants be financially self-sufficient. Finally, to promote integration, assimilation and National Unity. Future immigrants will be required to learn English and to pass a Civics exam prior to admission. Through the steps we will deliver and emigrate A system that respects and even strengthens our culture, our traditions and our values. 4 months ago I had the honor of participating in a swearing-in ceremony for new Americans right here in the Oval Office. If it was a beautiful reminder that American citizenship is the most precious gift our nation has to offer, when we swear in New City, we do more than give them a permit. We give them a history, a Heritage, a home and a future of Limitless possibilities and potential. Our nation used to pride ourselves on this capacity, our unique ability to instil the spirit of America into any human heart into any human. Being. Many of the Democrats have claim to be for these Concepts at different times in their careers and in many cases in very recent history, and I hope that they will end up joining me and all of the people gathered together today and putting politics aside. Putting security and wages 1st and pursuing these historic reform it’s time and if, for some reason, possibly political, we can’t get the Democrats to a this merit-based high security plan. Then we will get it approved immediately after the election. When we take back the house, keep the Senate and, of course, hold the presidency. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much, but wouldn’t it be nice to do it sooner than that, but it’s not what time is it 16 months? One of the reasons we will win is because of our strong, fair and pro-america immigration policy. It’S time to restore our national unity and reaffirm our Nash purpose. It is time to rebuild our country for all-americans. Together, we will create an immigration system to make America safer and stronger and greater than ever before. Thank you. God bless you all. Thank you very much.
