Vastavam web: President Donald Trump has said that he wants people with merit to enter the United States, a move that can help technology professionals from countries such as India. “I’m very tough at the borders. We’ve been very tough at the borders. People have to come into our country legally, not illegally. Legally. And I want them to come in on merit,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Saturday.
Responding to a series of question on illegal immigration, the president reiterated that he wants people based on merit, a move that can help technology professionals from countries such as India. “We need people coming in, but we want them to come in on merit. We want people that are going to help us. It’s very important,” Trump said.
Observing that immigration is not tricky to him, he insisted that the administration and the Congress have to do the right thing whether there’s an election or not. He opposed the chain migration policy and said, “If that’s a bad policy, then guess what, a lot of bad things are going to happen. But a lot of people agree with me. I would say a vast majority of our country agrees. They don’t want criminals coming into our country. They don’t want people that they don’t want in the country that aren’t going to help us as a country. They don’t want these people coming in. So we have a very strong policy.”
