President Trump unveiled controversial legislation that would sharply curtail legal immigration to the United States. The president met with two Republican senators pushing the legislation, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia. One of President Trump’s campaign promises was to reduce immigration, illegal and legal.

The Cotton-Perdue legislation, also known as the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE Act) would cut by half the number of legal immigrants accepted into the U.S. each year.  RAISE Act would cut the number of refugees in half. And most importantly, it would eliminate the diversity visa lottery that gives visas to countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.

Impact

Limiting legal immigration is opposed by business groups, which rely on low-skilled workers for agriculture and other jobs. And economists point to the low unemployment rate, 4.4 percent last month, as evidence that there are relatively few Americans who are without jobs now, and that, as Baby Boomers retire, there will be a labor shortage.

It’s not clear how much support there is in the Senate for such a bill. Republicans such as Lindsey Graham and John McCain are likely opponents, and there’s little enthusiasm among Democrats. Still, on the heels of last week’s collapse of efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Trump is looking for a legislative victory, there is likely to be a strong push for this measure in the weeks and months ahead.
