Yesterday, President Trump came out in support of Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act or the RAISE Act, S. 354. If passed, the RAISE Act would cut immigration in half in 10 years and ratchet up immigration eligibility requirements such as giving preference to skilled younger applicants who speak English as a second language. If passed, the RAISE Act would be the most significant change to immigration law since the passage fo the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.
