Trump announces immigration proposal in White House Rose Garden, live stream

  • Published on May 16, 2019
  • President Trump will talk about his plan to prioritize high-skilled immigrants and restrict family-based migration at the White House on Thursday, but the proposal is still light on details. Follow live updates on CBS News:
    Mr. Trump's 2:30 p.m. Rose Garden rollout will present "his thoughts" on immigration, a senior administration official told reporters Thursday. But it won't include anything to protect undocumented immigrants who arrived as children, it's unclear if a single Democrat has been consulted, and some Republicans have offered tepid responses to the proposal.

    Such topics definetly needs to be addressed in schools because what middle class school is teaching immigrants or the young generation today is bs. How can you become "high skilled citizens" when you've been thaught to go to school in order to get a good job. What's so high skilled about that???

    27 million dollars was awarded to ILLEGALS for schooling, but our Soldiers got 2.7 million. How is that moral? Your Democratic Party tax payer dollars at work. Remember whatever they give away free, or let laws slide for illegals, you don't get a get out of jail free card do you, and you pay for the illegals to live here, to not pay taxes while working under the table, and it allows others to rob you because they are poor. Go to China, Mexico, Russia, Iraq, Iran and cross their border without a proper papers, and you will be arrested, put in jail and maybe be classified as a spy.

    In the old days, to come to this country you had to show a way to support yourself, and if you were getting married into the country, you would have to sign a paper that you will not jump on the government bandwagon of welfare.

    Let's focus our immigration on highly educated white people. None of those dirty low-wage creeps.

    Immigration preference will be given to immigrants with higher education, so that they can displace Americans, thus making higher education increasingly less worthwhile.

      @Mike Uvarov White Canadians? What does skin colour have to do with immigration? You realize there's more whites and Asians coming into Canada than other races right? I'm born and raised in Canada, you're completely wrong. Rape and crime rates are low here. No one is leaving and no one is complaining. Oh and btw nice last name, I wonder where that came from...

    theres nothing wrong with cracking down illegal aliens build wall do all that i dont mind illegal aliens should not be here and should be deported that is there fate for breaking the law. But this merrit bases system is attacking legal immigration and how its been for so many year. The legal immigrents that come here through marraige then work hard and become citizens should have the right to petition there loved ones father or mother or kids without this merrit based system its not right. This is way is to strict. Trump is attacking legal immigration by making even tougher to get here legally. The merrit base system is ok to add to the current immigration system to get very skilled immigrant a chance to get here even though they have no family here. But leave legal immigration family ties way to get here alone. Trump has just lost my vote cause of this. Hes going to far. Hes attacking legal immigration in a very immoral way.

    Hey whatever works right? I mean we've tried in the past to correct immigration and crime and drugs entering our borders and nothing was effective,so now, a new approach.Trump is definitely on to something better,and he's willing to set the record straight.We just wait to wait and see. I definitely agree on his plan for a point based system allowing young college educated people with degrees as viable candidates for citizenship.Hey take a look it's worked in Canada and Australia among others. Highly skilled over no skilled offers more to this country than rifraff with high crimes and misdemeanors.

    My wife migrated to the US from Asia. She applied for entry while waiting in her own country. It took a while but she was granted entry and has since became a US citizen.
    She didn't invade the border demanding entry. She didn't ask for welfare, hospitalization, handouts or any special treatment.
    Why should mass migrants or "invaders" jump in line in front of those who have applied Legally?

    If The Democrats do their predictable stunt of blockading, and not being concerned about helping their constituents and followers, what we will see is their desire to open up the borders, which will make our demand for more law-enforcement higher, causing higher municipality fees, causing more taxes, causing greater infrastructure and bureaucracy deficit in Intel forces, and then, giving more false promises that they never for filled during Obama.
    Opening up the borders actually is tremendously costly and is the reason we have to pour money into a wall now. Additionally there is human trafficking prize money that has been tied to past political figures. So if Bring In., Syrian refugees into America into certain cities, those politicians and people who helped this happen make money from this -but never help the immigrants. All at the cost of our tax dollars, in the hope to drive up greater votes in districts dying away from Democratic majority.

    Regarding refugee claims there are so many fake refugee claims there hasn't been a way or system that tracks refugees. Also refugees shouldn't be allowed to get legal papers.

    Trump is a pathological liar. He has a record already of performing worse than Obama on immigration law enforcement.

    President Trump constantly compares Canada a country that has being inundated with Muslim refugees from Syria. A country that has passed Blasphemy laws , first step towards Sharia. And with all this they gave asylum to Bibi Asia a Christian woman from Pakistan that was in jail for eight years bec of Blasphamy laws. Trump is the Jewish president.

    What about the American doctors, American graduates that were educated in America, have student loans they must pay. How is this making America great bringing in high talent to compete for less pay than American educated since those foreigners may have no student loans. If you truly want to make America great bring in persecuted Christians that are undergoing genocide throughout the Middle East and Africa. This top talent are what communist from China or Muslims from India, and yes India has a high number of Muslims but they try to lie to the world by saying Indians are just Hindus.

    Trump 2020! I didn't vote Trump last election, but I will be this election. Dems are too worried about political correctness and "morality" politics, there is no practicality in the Dem approach lately. Trump has proven he is taking steps to improve the functionality of our country. I think it's really sad that we aren't able to sustain all the people who want to move here, but if we continue to allow illegal immigration en masse, we won't have a country that people around the world want to move to, and the citizens and legal immigrants here in the U.S. will pay - economically and otherwise.

    I posted 15 openings for field picking, how many people with A degree showed up for the position?. 0!. How many people legally allowed to work in the u.s. or citizens do you believe showed up? 0! Hispanics showed up! Everyone could have shown up but just Hispanics showed up. If I went with this plan, NO Work would get done ever. Down to the strawberries or grapes or fruit all of America eats has to be picked by someone and unless America wants to go without being able to eat these foods and be able to purchase these foods.. .... for you to eat those grapes you buy someone has to pick em and I don't see American citizen running to apply for these positions. Get rid of those that make it possible for you to buy that fruit at your local stores and you'll hate life.

      Good point. But looking beautiful is considered a job skill in this country. Melania made as much money as a Silicon Valley computer programmer with her modeling career---which means she contributed a lot of taxes to our welfare system. So that's how we do it.

    We all know that diversity is being pushed on us, and we are told that it is a good thing.
    But have you noticed that it is only in White countries that diversity is being promoted?
    Nobody is promoting diversity in Black or Asian countries.
    Diversity means chasing down the last White child.
    It means chasing down White flight until their are no more White neighborhoods, schools, or workplaces.
    Diversity is a codeword for White genocide.
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.
