Washington: US President Donald Trump is preparing to create an immigration system based on merit. This information was given by a statement issued by the White House. This statement comes after an interview given Donald Trump to a news channel, where Trump had talked about a merit-based immigration system.
Indeed, Trump said in an interview to Telemundo News that he was working on a government order on immigration that would include a “framework for granting citizenship” to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA is a kind of administrative exemption from extradition. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible migrants from extradition who came to America when they were children.
In response to a question, Trump said that his action on DACA is going to be part of a larger bill on immigration. He said, “It will be a comprehensive and very good bill, it will be a merit-based bill and it will include DACA.” I think people will be happy with it. “
“The president announced today that he is working on a government order to establish a merit-based immigration system to protect the rights of American workers,” the White House said in a statement. The team was accused of breaking the agreement with them on DACA.
