    Pathway to citizenship can't be done by president himself. It has to be a law passed by Congress.
    I don't want to be too pessimistic but this tweet is a PR move to make the contrast between illegal vs legal immigrants.
    Only thing that may happen is that he asks Congress to remove country cap which itself is already on the plate.
    Last, wait until he watches his favorite news channel and what they would say.

      Removing country cap would screw over everyone else

      Well I guess it depends on which side you are:
      If Indian/Chinese , you would be happy.
      If ROW, yes it screws you over badly.

      HRC, you talking to me?

      Lol. Keep dreaming. Without country cap, US will become mini India. Then even you Indians won't like US as much. Let's keep the diversity.

    I installed a trump filter in chrome and have never been happier. Half of CNN is empty though they’ve really stopped reporting the news.

      I realized anything with Trump in it makes me sad.

    For starters he can start premium processing. Stop denial without RFE, which they just implemented. End this spike in trivial RFE nonsense. And I140 ead wont hurt. Chances of this happening, less than 1 pct.

      1 pct is a very high percentage. As likely as Mexico paying for the wall

    How about replacing H1B with green card upon arrival?

      That would require a significant change to USA's immigration laws and will not have any support from Republicans or Democrats. Neither party wants to make such a drastic change.

    "potential path to citizenship" to legal immigrants is AMNESTY.

      Don’t H1Bs already have a well defined path to citizenship already? Atleast for RoW (non India, non China), it’s very straightforward.

    Thats the angle democrates are pushing as a bargaining chip for the wall negotiation.....which tells you all you need to know about democrats.

    Politicians dont worry about h1b running for office but they sure want smater STEM workers to be underpaid

    He is a liar and he will not... he worsen the situation for even legal immigrants... I understand his concern for illegal immigration but his policies have create hell for genuine H1bs... it will anyway affect us... but think of this

    85,000 (application) X
    $1500 (Visa fees) + 3,00,000 (Actual applications) X $500 (attorney charged) + 8,50,000 (Legal H1bs for visa renewal since 2007 to 2018) X ($1000 - normal and premium processing fees average) + 7,00,000 (GC applications) x $1225 + 2,440,000 (Total H1bs now) x $20,000 (Tax every year paid by H1bs employees) = 127500000 + 150000000+ 850000000 + 857500000+ 48800000000 = billions of $... Just H1b from India... I have not accounted direct immigrant and from other counties... do you think any government don’t need this much money every year ?

    H1B will pay extra $50,000 for visa processing and that fee will pay for the wall.

      Genius. Make it $200k, typical 1 year TC

    • Microsoft naaam
      This was there in one of the proposals. If it's $200k and it's certain, you'd see a huge crowd opting for it. But basically won't happen as this would overlap with eb5 which is already backlogged for Chinese coz so many willing to spend 500k. A revision is due on that.

    He may not do anything. But he at least spoke about it unlike the former president.
