President Trump Plans New Immigration Reform

Trump proposes merit-based immigration law, including DACA

Telemundo interviews President Trump

Noticias Telemundo is a television program generally directed at Spanish-speaking communities. Last Friday, July 10, 2020, the President of the US, Donald Trump, granted an interview to Telemundo.

The president shared with the interviewer that he is planning to present an immigration executive order, proposing a new reform to the country’s immigration laws.

The idea of the current administration of the US is to present this executive order in the course of the next four weeks.

What is President Trump’s proposal?

It is well known that the immigration sector in the US has strongly felt the impact of the global pandemic. Immigration policies changed considerably during the massive Coronavirus outbreak, and regulations established by local law are not always fully followed.

Thus, when President Trump announced that he plans to introduce a new immigration reform, fear increased among immigrant rights advocates and immigrant communities currently residing in the US.

However, according to the interview, the president plans to present an immigration bill that will benefit and favor the majority of immigrants in the US.

In fact, the president declared: “It’s going to be a very big bill, a very good bill, and a merit-based bill and it will include DACA, and I think people are going to be very happy”.

DACA is included in the president’s new proposal

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a program offered to immigrants who came to the US without legal documentation when they were minors. This program allows them to obtain temporary work permits and be an active part of American society, which could help the country overcome the current economic crisis.

This program, established during Barack Obama’s term, has been embroiled in constant political controversy for the past two years. That is due to the fact that President Trump does not fully agree with this benefit, but immigrant rights advocates have fought tirelessly to keep the program active.

Recently, the US Supreme Court of Justice ruled in favor of DACA and reversed President Trump’s proposal to remove it from programs offered to immigrants.

During the interview, Trump openly assured Telemundo that DACA recipients will be very happy since the program will be included in the immigration reform and will have a “road to citizenship”.

President Trump stated that he plans to protect DACA and more than 750,000 people covered by this immigration benefit.

Merit-based immigration law

The president did not elaborate on what the new immigration reform will specifically include. However, he assured that it would benefit many people and that it will be based on merit.

Trump wants to implement new immigration measures that involve the effort of immigrants and the protection of DACA.

With this, the president intends to help immigrants while safeguarding local resources to protect American workers and citizens.
