President Trump: ‘Real and positive immigration reform is possible’

News-placeholder-6

President Donald J. Trump Tuesday during his first joint address to Congress said his goals for immigration reform “will have many benefits” and that it’s possible to achieve his goals for immigration reform if members of Congress come together.

The Hill has the details:

Switching away from this current system of lower-skilled immigration, and instead adopting a merit-based system, will have many benefits:  it will save countless dollars, raise workers’ wages, and help struggling families –- including immigrant families –- enter the middle class.

I believe that real and positive immigration reform is possible, as long as we focus on the following goals: to improve jobs and wages for Americans, to strengthen our nation’s security, and to restore respect for our laws.

If we are guided by the well-being of American citizens then I believe Republicans and Democrats can work together to achieve an outcome that has eluded our country for decades.

It’s time for our leaders in Washington, D.C. to do their job and represent the American people and American values. Enforcing our immigration policies already on the books is an integral part of doing just that.
