President Donald Trump is working on a new executive order. The idea is to erect a merit-based immigration system in the U.S. The aim is to protect the workers of the United States. The White House announced this a couple of days ago.

The announcement on the Bill 

Telemundo News Channel recently interviewed with the U.S. President. Telemundo is a Spanish language media channel. The interview revealed that Trump is working on a new executive order on immigration. This will include a “road to citizenship” for the beneficiaries of the DACA programme. Thus, soon after this interview, the White House released its statement confirming the same.

The DACA

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a United States immigration policy. The policy was a presidential memorandum. President Barack Obama had announced it in the year 2012. It grants individuals with an illegal presence in the U.S. two years of deferred action from deportation. But these are those people who entered the U.S. as minors. Moreover,  this two-year grant is also renewable, which can lend these individuals a work permit in the country. But, to qualify, the recipients must not be felons or miscreants, on record. Thus, DACA does not lead these individuals on a path to citizenship. Hence, this is contrary to the DREAM Act, introduced in 2001,

On June 18, 2020, the Supreme Court of the United States thwarted Trump’s efforts to demolish DACA. The case which prevented the recession of the program for young immigrants is- Trump v. NAACP.

The Bill 

Trump, in his declaration, called the Bill “a very big”, “very good” and “a merit-based bill”. He further added that the Bill could make the people very happy with it, subsuming the DACA. “We are going to have a road to citizenship.” He announced.

Trump’s efforts have been forever controversial. His re-election pursuits are due in November. Immigration continues to be one of his ingrained, signature campaign issues. He has, for long been, striving to revise the U.S. immigration system. The President would rather have a system based on merit rather than family ties.

Trump said that he wants to negotiate and work together with the Congress on DACA. He wants to include citizenship. “A strong border security and permanent merit-based reforms”. However, the Democrats have not been very flexible with such offers. They are rigid in wanting only open borders and nothing else. The Statement by the White House clarified.

Moreover, Senator Ted Cruz has warned the Trump administration. This was against its idea to include citizenship. He claimed that the President had “zero constitutional authority” to do so. Given the background and the opposition, it would be interesting to note how it all pans out.
