Finally the senate is starting to do something about the flood of migrants that keeps wages low in the USA.

Two Republican senators proposed steps to slash the number of legal immigrants admitted into the United States by half on Tuesday, but the legislation, developed with the Trump administration, faces an uphill climb to get through Congress.

Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue said their bill would cut the number of immigrants granted U.S. residency each year to 500,000 from 1 million, through measures including cutting far back on which relatives can be brought into the country and eliminating a diversity visa lottery.

The legislation does not address visas specifically tied to employment, such as the H-1B visas for skilled workers used by many technology companies.

The bill would admit only immediate family members of immigrants, eliminating preferences for adult siblings or adult children. Cotton said it would exclude parents unless they were sick and the family promised not to rely on public benefits.

Cotton said his goal was to stop competition that lowers wages for workers without high school or college degrees. "Unless we reverse this trend, we are going to create a near-permanent underclass for whom the American dream is always just out of reach," he said.

Your own article stated that it will not come up in the senate anytime soon.

The US government needs to slow down and review immigration issues and make a viable plan rather than shooting from the hip on week three.

Since it will be decided by the legislative branch, you can be sure it will move at a glacial pace.

Mexico has a disproportionate share of the immigrant population coming into the United States:

http://www.cheatsheet.com/business/thes ... ?a=viewall

Quote:
10. Guatemala: 2%
9. Dominican Republic: 2%
8. South Korea: 3%
7. Cuba: 3%
6. El Salvador: 3%
5. Vietnam: 3%
4. The Philippines: 4%
3.China: 5%
2. India: 5%
1. Mexico: 28%


So, in a way, it's understandable why much of the American population is up in arms about an influx of Mexican migrants. They need to distribute them better so other nations have an equal chance too.

Canada has a similar problem with too many immigrants from China and India - as they make up 25% of the immigrants. We should follow the United States and have an official policy of no more than 5% from any country.

As far as the US goes, you are right Kam. Neither party has done anything to stop it while they have been in the white house.
