President Trump announced a plan today to overhaul parts of the U.S. immigration system. The plan focuses on new security measures at the border, changes to the asylum process, and a revised legal immigration system that shifts family-based green cards to employment-based and creates a new points-based immigration system. This is an evolving issue and BAL will provide updates as additional information becomes available.
BAL Analysis: The White House is now working on drafting an immigration bill and seeking Congressional sponsors. The plan announced today is a summary of its forthcoming legislative proposal, and BAL will provide updates as more information becomes available.
