"Our plan achieves two critical goals".

Trump's plan, roundly panned by Democrats and immigration advocacy groups, is aimed at trying to unite Republicans - some who want to boost immigration, others who want to restrict it - before the November 2020 presidential and congressional elections.

Toyota Motor Corp, which said in March it is investing $13 billion in U.S. operations through 2021, called the designation "a major set-back for American consumers, workers and the auto industry" and said it sent the message "our investments are not welcomed".

If implemented, the White House proposal would shift from this paradigm, allocating 57 percent of visas to individuals with useful job market skills or concrete offers of employment.

Now about 12 per cent of those receiving green cards entered the US based on skill-based visas, while 66% are family-based green cards.

"Under the senseless rules of the current system, we're not able to give preference to a doctor, a researcher, a student who graduated number one in his class from the finest colleges in the world". His merit-based plan would have applicants build points based on high-level degrees or vocational certification, English proficiency and other factors.

President Trump says "Our plan includes a sweeping modernization of our dysfunctional legal immigration process".

"Our proposal is pro-American, pro-immigrant and pro-worker", he said, before laying out some of his proposal. The plan also calls for new infrastructure at ports of entry to speed up commerce, while cracking down on drug and human trafficking.

The commander in chief also charged that numerous asylum seekers from Central America who are flooding across the southern border are making bogus claims.

Once again, Iraq caught up in escalating US-Iran tensions

Missouri's Republican-led Legislature passes 8-week abortion ban
Women from different walks of life have embraced the campaign, sharing the reasons and experiences associated with their abortion. Last week, Georgia banned abortions past the six week mark, when the embryo is about the size of a sweet pea .

4 & Reveals His Name Is Psalm West
Kim Kardashian West put on a screening of "The Secret Life of Pets 2" for her children and their cousins at her mansion. " Psalm West sounds like the location of a new desert music festival that costs $1,000 a ticket, " another said .

Under the plan, migrants seeking asylum in the USA would have to make their claims at processing centers in places such as Central American countries and Mexico, not in the U.S.

The proposal is calibrated to have a chance of passage in the House, where Democrats have obstructed every one of Trump's immigration reforms.

Congressman Mike Rogers, ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee, said a White House plan to boost border security and reform the immigration system is a welcome step.

Trump called on the Democrats to support the proposal by ensuring that it was passed into law. Trump stressed that the plan was not a plan developed by politicians, but by border enforcement professionals. "100% operationally secure. 100%", he said. "We won't anymore", he said.

The Trump plan's biggest weakness in getting Democratic Party support is the failure to grant permanent immigration status to those who came to the USA illegally as children and are referred to as "Dreamers" for their pursuit of the American dram. "We will see an impact, if it ever passes", Golding said. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a close Trump ally.

Trump on Thursday unveiled his proposal in a Rose Garden news conference with little hard-line rhetoric.

"Don't come up with a plan that Stephen Miller rubber-stamps and say, 'Now, pass it.' It's not going to happen", Schumer said, referring to Trump's hard-line policy adviser.

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for lower immigration rates, welcomed a "very positive effort" that was "undermined by the embrace of the current very high level of immigration".
