On Thursday, President Trump revealed his new proposal to revamp parts of the country's immigration system, seeking to offer more opportunities for immigrants with certain skills or job offers who are proficient in English and pass a civics test. Trump unveiled the plan, which was developed by his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, at a ceremony in the Rose Garden. The proposal cuts back on family-based immigration and calls for construction on Trump's long-promised southern border wall, but does not address the legal status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. Trump suggested he did not believe the plan could become law in the near future, and said "we will get it approved immediately after the election."
