Trump to launch new immigration overhaul push

President Trump on Wednesday warned again about the dangers of undocumented immigrants, signaling no plans to temper his rhetoric even as he prepares to unveil a broad proposal aimed at balancing public perception of his administration's hard line agenda.

Trump is scheduled to use a Rose Garden speech on Thursday to throw his support behind a plan developed by his son-in-law and White House adviser, Jared Kushner, to move US immigration toward a "merit-based system" that prioritizes high-skilled workers.

Trump met with a dozen GOP senators at the White House last week and several of them emerged to characterize the plan as a "political document" that Republicans can rally around as Democrats seek to demonize the president on immigration ahead of the 2020 election. Nor does it reduce overall rates of immigration, as many conservative Republicans would like to see. The Atlantic says the administration is not now advancing this issue, despite Trump's pronouncement.

Trump will present an overview of the plan, with details of the "very large document" to be released in coming weeks, the official said. "That is going to be up to them", said the official who requested anonymity.

The senators spoke as they were leaving their weekly policy lunch at the Capitol where they heard from Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, and hardline immigration adviser Stephen Miller - who have been working on the plan with other White House officials for a couple of months.

The U.S. would award the same number of green cards as it now does, but far more would go to exceptional students, professionals and people with vocational degrees.

It's not the first time the Trump White House has come out with an immigration plan. Factors such as age, English language ability and employment offers would be taken into account.

It also seeks to end the diversity lottery system that grants entry into the U.S. to about 55,000 people from underrepresented countries every year.

The White House proposal is "not created to become law", Sen.

"I realize that this process has got to have some Democratic buy-in", Graham said.

When we asked when other TV brands would get the app, Apple declined to comment beyond saying "it will come in the future". In the Home app on the iPhone , tap the house button in the upper-left corner, and under Speakers, tap Software Update.


Indeed, the plan drew immediate criticism from Democrats as well as immigration activists, who remain deeply skeptical of Trump after past negotiation failures.

The key change is to shift the immigration system away from one where immigrants pick the USA, and toward one where the US picks immigrants.

Sen. Lindsey Graham debuted a new immigration bill on Wednesday to tackle the "perfect storm brewing at the border", taking aim at Central American migrants who he says have relied on immigration loopholes for too long.

"If we do these four things, then the incentive created by our laws will cease to exist, and this humanitarian crisis will begin to fix itself", Graham said.

The Moon is shrinking and generating lunar quakes
Just five years from now, NASA will send one woman and one man back to the moon, landing on the lunar body's south pole. But because the moon's surface is brittle, not flexible like grape skin, it cracked and formed slip faults as it shrank.
