Trump unveils merit-based immigration system

Desk: US President Donald Trump has rolled out a merit-based immigration system from which foreigners, including hundreds and thousands of Indian professionals and skilled workers, waiting to get Green Cards or permanent legal residency stand to benefit.

President Trump said under the proposed system permanent legal residency would be given based on points for their age, knowledge, job opportunities and civic sense.

The proposals significantly increase the quota for skilled workers from the existing nearly 12 per cent to 57 per cent. Besides, immigrants will be required to learn English and pass a civics exam prior to admission.
