Tags:

The Washington Post reports that President Trump endorsed a new bill in the Senate aimed at slashing legal immigration levels over a decade. Trump appeared with Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) at the White House today to unveil the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act, a modified version of a bill the senators first introduced in April to cut immigration by half from the current level of more than one million green cards per year granting foreigners permanent legal residence in the United States.
