Immigration: Trump’s trump card?

Sursa: Facebook

In a podcast with venture capitalists and tech investors, Donald Trump has suggested that foreign students who have successfully graduated from American college should be granted green cards with their diplomas. 

He expressed this idea a few days after Joe Biden pitched a plan for rehabilitating immigrants married to American citizens. 

“You graduate from a college, I think you should get automatically, as part of your diploma, a green card to be able to stay in this country, and that includes junior colleges,” specified Trump. 

Following the interview, Trump’s campaign press secretary clarified that there would be an „aggressive vetting process” for green card applicants, excluding individuals deemed detrimental to US interests: communists, radical Islamists, America haters and public charges. 

Many have pointed out that this contrasts with Trump’s insistence on the restrictions he previously placed on students during his presidency, as well as with his “Buy American and hire American” executive order. 

But Joe Biden was equally inconsistent, threatening to immediately tighten border control and proposing a green card plan for certain immigrants two weeks later. 

The back and forth goes to show what a crucial element that of immigration continues to be in American politics, and also the continued unsure footing of policy-makers on the subject. 

Circa 11 million migrants are living in the US unauthorized. 

Trump has pledged to undertake the largest deportation of undocumented migrants in US history if reelected in November – continuing the work he began in his first mandate.
