skilled immigrants

The immigrants we need most

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

The solution is to tilt our immigration system away from extended family immigrants and more toward skills and merit. To put America first, it makes sense to give green cards to the immigrants who will do the most good for our country. President Trump wants to shift our visas system to emphasize skill and merit, and Congress should get behind him. Skill-based immigration is one of our best weapons to keep the American economy number one in the world and to ensure we never surrender technological dominance to the Chinese or other rising nations that want to knock America off our commanding economic heights.
