Everyone who is happy about “merit based”. Stop. We don’t know what it is. I have an Ivy League education and make about 400- 500k. Am I merit-based? If I am, what does it mean for 90% of immigrants who don’t have these bonafides?

Yep. If there’s an emphasis on salary, new grads (top schools or otherwise) would probably be out of the game.

Lol just using "merit based" and "immigration reform" as tools to pick work visa holder and DACA against each other, and hopefully to score some political talking points . Y'all be clowns if you think the current administration care anything about any kind of immigration. You think any EO is in favor of you, but it's simply because Trump think he can use you to attack another immigrate group. Once that's done, hell be happily turn around and attack you with another immigrate group.

An EO cannot change the law. The legal framework is decided by Congress, not the President.

@C1, I think I see your point. The EO doesn’t create a law per se but it executes what a law would have done, so in the meantime where there’s no law, it’s the law. I’m kinda drunk right now so bear with me 😂😂

nothing is merit based ..even the so called merit based immigration of canada and Australia is a farce. they force you to invest in their university degrees so that they can support and subsidize their own. it is laughable that a country is saying a person holding a degree from their university is meritorious than some with same degree in say china or india. If you truly want to make it merit based make it open for all around the world , have the toughest entrance test in respective subject test where you need ppl and make the rank based qualification. an engineer writes an engineering test , a doctor writes a medicine test . unless you do that stop spreading that false notion of merit.

Republicans want to reduce immigration. Period. Whatever method they use is going to help some group and demolish other. Trump is no different. Don’t believe anything he says.

Oh when did democrats stated or did something to increase the immigration? That’s the thing that drives me nuts this idea that the democrats cares about immigrants..maybe they do for specific categories. What did they ever do for legal immigration? ( FYI I usually vote for democrats in my country) Trump sucked big time with the last EO but I didn’t see one single response from a Democrat to stop the EO. The EO was barely mentioned on CCN and other democrats news that day (I have a screenshot). Democrats had 8 years to make the h-1b process nicer or to update it? I don’t think anything was done in that matter. During the campaign they always talk about grating GC but it is always for illegal immigrants, nobody talks about the backlogs in the H-1b world. I’m even from a country without backlog and I could get the GC in no time if my company sponsors it so I have no conflict interest in this matter.
