    If it benefits non-white immigrants, it won't happen.

      Democrats will block it. Just like they fought to impose per country visa caps (preferring diversity qualifications at the expense of hard working Indian/Asians).
      Similar to how they enjoy making it harder for Asians to get into top us universities for the sake of "diversity."

      The only people who would stop it are the diversity police Democrats who don't like meritocracy.

    Why wouldn’t you want family-based immigration? Skills and education are necessary of course. Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

      It’s not that they don’t want family based immigration, it’s just that the definition of family is limited to your immediate family as it is in most of the modern world. In US immigration system, family includes adult parents and siblings. In the new system they are excluded. That’s consistent with how we define a family within the US.

      Then an adult immigrant can bring their spouse and kids? Fair enough. I’m fine with extended family coming as well though. We want people that want to create a life here and invest in the country, not just do a job.

      Yes that’s the proposal. Although media will report no family allowed.

    What is the term for a country which hates single folks? Why should immigration be based on family ties?

    Even though single folks fucking pay the taxes, spouse of some one not paying tax gets a green card sooner. How is this even legal?!

      How is it legal for companies to set up internship programs targeted directly to URMs instead of being race/gender agnostic? Discrimination is a valued trait of the DNC.

    It is dead on arrival. This is only campaign fodder.

      Exactly. Remember Ebola in NYC? After election -poof. No more Ebola reported anywhere :)

    After Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barak Obama, another President will try and fail on the same.

    This could be a generous plan to play a blame game too. I brought up a good plan but dems screwed it narrative.
