Trump's Immigration Proposals

Excerpt from Trump's speech:

"The time has come for a new immigration commission to develop a new set of reforms to our legal immigration system in order to achieve the following goals:

To keep immigration levels, measured by population share, within historical norms.

To select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in U.S. society, and their ability to be financially self-sufficient. We need a system that serves our needs – remember, it's America First.

To choose immigrants based on merit, skill and proficiency.

And to establish new immigration controls to boost wages and to ensure that open jobs are offered to American workers first.

We want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally and properly-vetted, and in a manner that serves the national interest."


Oh, but before you snicker dear Canadians, this is pretty much Canadian immigration policy.


  1. That's what I've always thought as well.
    Namely: Why (and how) are all these random lower-class outsiders freely pouring into the U.S. without consequence?

    When some low-income American (like me) can't even get into a country (like Canada) to even as much as visit or look around for a few hours without having X amount of money or X amount in my bank or checking account? Or without presenting some kind of evidence of currently holding down a job/profession that pays at least X amount a year?

    That sort of thing has always irked me for quite some time now.

    1. And clearly you're not alone. I don't know if Trump is an answer to any of this, but he's already shaking the nation up.
