President Donald Trump today introduced his plan for a merit-based immigration system. That is the good news. The bad news is he also wants to lower the number of legal immigrants coming into the USA. All in all, this is not impressive, and it is sure to be another tough sell with a Congress that is having no end of trouble with one Trump policy after another.
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina had his comments on Twitter that pretty much sums up what we can expect, and that is yet another fight between Trump and “the Swamp”. Don’t expect Trump’s immigration proposals to go through in one piece, folks.
