Trump's immigration plan will benefit highly skilled Indians

They included a complete overhaul of the green-card system that would limit family-based green cards to spouses and the minor children of USA citizens and lawful permanent residents as part of an effort to end what is known as "chain migration".

The list includes the construction of Trump's long-promised - and controversial - wall along the US-Mexico border and speeding up deportation of visa overstayers.

On Sunday, the White House released a set of demands in exchange for a deal for legislation supporting the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Maria has caused widespread damage in the Caribbean, hitting several areas already affected by Hurricane Irma like Haiti. Still, the tropical season is far from over and more storms could develop later in October, Accuweather warns.

The group helped many Dreamers reapply for DACA status before the October 5 deadline and she said despite being optimistic during clinics to help people renew their status, there was an underlying sense of fear and uncertainty for the many Yakima residents who aren't sure what
their futures in America hold.

Instead, the White House list includes longstanding demands of the Republican Party's immigration hardliners, including expediting removals of unaccompanied children arriving at the border; tightening standards for people allowed to seek asylum in the USA; barring immigrants who have been convicted of a range of crimes, including drunk driving; and barring federal grants to so-called "sanctuary cities" that do not turn over illegal immigrants to federal authorities. The Trump administration ended the program in September and gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution.

Democrats met with Trump last month and were close to a deal to allow the people who were brought to the U.S as children to stay legally and work.

Donald Trump has proposed a merit-based immigration system that could benefit highly- skilled Indian workers but prevents them from sponsoring their extended families, as part-of an aggressive plan which the U.S. president said will serve national interest. Trump said it was unlikely that illegal migrants and chain migrants would continue to be heavily influenced by American workers and taxpayers. Now the President tells us it's the Dreamers. "We have to have border security", said Gardner.

He also called for skills-based immigration criteria, expedited deportation procedures for kids fleeing violence in Central America and mandatory e-verify at all companies to keep those in the country illegally from getting jobs. Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement, "The proposal fails to represent any attempt at a compromise".

Democrats, have, however, refused to roll the dice with the President and Republicans in general by rejecting any attachments to the bill.

Turkey has been moving military equipment to its border with Syria since June 21. "We wish them luck", Bahçeli also said. Asked how far Turkey might go in deploying troops inside Syria, Erdogan declined to give details.

Schumer and Pelosi said in a statement. "Whether it is part of DACA or there is a different pathway to get it done, it will remain a priority", he said, adding it would be up to Trump to determine what was negotiable and what was not in a future deal.
