Would President Trump Let you Immigrate to America?

President Trump expressed his support for a new immigration bill based on a point system which would appear to reduce the number of people that will be allowed to immigrate to the US.

Under the proposed Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act (“RAISE ACT”), applicants will need to acquire points under a number of point-scoring factors including: age; level of education; English ability; salary; investment to be made in the US; whether the applicant has won any Nobel Prize or any comparable internal award; whether the applicant has won any Olympic medal in the past 8 years.

Even with the endorsement of the President, the bill is struggling to get approval from the Congress.
