Stephen Moore, CNS News

Trump's plan follows many of the recommendations made by my colleagues at The Heritage Foundation on how our immigration system should work.

This new immigration system could add at least $2 trillion to our economy over the next decade while reducing the national debt by $500 billion, according to White House estimates. Under the Trump immigration plan, America does good and does well.
