Immigration is expected to be a key issue in President-Elect Donald Trump’s administration. Though he has voiced some support for skilled immigration, he has called for more vetting of foreign nationals entering the United States, curbs on foreign worker admissions and increased obligations on employers of foreign workers.
The President-Elect’s position paper on immigration supports selecting immigrants based on merit, skills, and likelihood of success in the United States. At the same time, he has called for immigration controls that would prioritise the hiring of U.S. workers. He has advocated for reform of the H-1B program, though he has not yet made specific proposals.
