It was originally introduced in February.

"This is what President Trump campaigned on", Miller said while defending the policy during an afternoon press briefing that eventually turned combative.

But the legislation faces an uphill climb to get through Congress where some senior Republicans back comprehensive immigration reform, not a tough crackdown.

"This competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak English, financially support themselves and their families, and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy". "This is different than illegal immigration".

The initial bill, which stalled in the Senate for several months and is being reintroduced with certain changes, called for the elimination of the "diversity visa", would allocate 50,000 visas annually to people from countries with low immigration rates to the United States and place a cap on refugee admissions at 50,000 per year.

At issue is how many immigrants to let in: Immigration doves argue that it's impossible to meet Trump's goals of higher growth without bringing in more workers, while immigration hawks argue they will drag down wages and fail to assimilate.

Senior director of global migration policy Kevin Appleby of the Center for Migration Studies asserted that the bill would dramatically reduce the availability of cheap labor in the USA and fundamentally alter the fabric of the country's values.

In a statement, Chris Clark, president and CEO of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, said the chamber is reviewing the bill and is "talking to our partners, especially those in the agriculture arena". It would also reduce low-skilled and unskilled labor immigration.

Militants loot JK bank in South Kashmir

On Wednesday afternoon, Donald Trump unveiled controversial legislation aimed at reducing legal immigration in the United States. It would end the diversity visa lottery program and cap permanent resident status for refugees to 50,000 a year.

Trump is not grudging Cotton any praise, calling the latest move the "most significant reform to our immigration system in half a century". The potentially controversial legislation would dramatically tilt American immigration law towards a more merit-based system. The bill would do that by taking away preference for immigrants who do not have immediate family members in the U.S. Legal immigrants coming into the U.S.at a rate 30 percent lower than ever before when the current population is taken into account, he said and that combined with Baby Boomers retiring droves and a historically low birthrate among Americans are setting the country up for a serious worker shortage "and I'm not sure if the senators are aware that they're being misled by these numbers".

The president added that the bill would aim to "help ensure that newcomers to our country will be assimilated, will succeed, and will achieve the American dream". Most economists said it was a bad idea and that it would hurt the economy.

Our immigration system should continue to value families.
