How the Trump Administration Changed Immigration

( – When Donald Trump ran for president in 2016, he promised he was going to change the immigration system in the US. That’s exactly what he spent the last four years doing.

Trump wanted America to move to a merit-based immigration system. That means highly-skilled immigrants with English skills were put ahead of lower-skilled workers.

The president also did the following:

  • Stopped the catch-and-release policy at the border
  • Reduced the number of refugees
  • Ended temporary protective status for immigrants from most countries that previously benefited
  • Built more than 400 miles of border wall

The president’s hard work to revamp immigration is better for all Americans, especially at a time of economic uncertainty. Without the policies, even more jobs would be out of reach for citizens and legal residents who are out of work during the pandemic.
