Trump: ‘The RAISE Act Prevents New Migrants And New Immigrants from Collecting Welfare’

‘The green card reforms in the RAISE Act will give American workers a pay raise by reducing unskilled immigration’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "The RAISE Act ends chain migration and replaces our low skilled system with a new points-based system for receiving a green card. 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. The RAISE Act prevents new migrants and new immigrants from collecting welfare and protects U.S. workers from being displaced. And that's a very big thing. They're not going to come in and just immediately go and collect welfare, that doesn't happen under the RAISE Act. They can't do that. Crucially, the green card reforms in the RAISE Act will give American workers a pay raise by reducing unskilled immigration."
