This is an extremely significant step that would change the current system, with the result that the overall levels of immigration would decline and the population of immigrants would become more diverse, with a lower proportion from Mexico.
According to the Washington Examiner:
President Trump will join Republican Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas at the White House Wednesday to unveil legislation that proposes a skills-based immigration system and seeks an overall lower level of legal immigration, two sources have confirmed to the Washington Examiner.
Officials stopped short of saying Trump would endorse the bill on Wednesday. However, the White House has been pushing for a bill that matches some of the goals that are expected to be in the new bill from Perdue and Cotton.
White House policy director Stephen Miller has reportedly been meeting with Senate Republicans in pursuit of ways to lower legal immigration.
The event begins at 11:30 am ET.
