Trump rolls out merit-based immigration system


Planning to immigrate to the USA? Well here is your chance as the country’s President Donald Trump has announced a merit-based immigration system which will benefit foreigners, including hundreds and thousands of Indian professionals and skilled workers, waiting to get Green Cards or permanent legal residency.

The move was declared in Trump’s Rose Garden speech made on Thursday.

According to the President, under the proposed system permanent legal residency would be given based on points for their age, knowledge, job opportunities and civic sense.

The proposals significantly increase the quota for skilled workers from the existing nearly 12 per cent to 57 per cent. To be eligible for the new roll out, immigrants will be required to learn English and pass a civics exam prior to admission.
