Last week, Trump made a public statement of endorsement for the R.A.I.S.E. (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment) Act. This new bill has goals of limited legal U.S. immigration dramatically. Originally introduced several months ago by Republican Senators Cotton and Perdue, this piece of legislation has gotten little to not support from either party. President Trump spoke about the bill at a White House press conference, labeling it helpful for "struggling American families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first". Despite Trump's positive words surrounding the bill, a notable amount of Republicans in Congress would vote against. Some members of Congress, including Republican Lindsey Graham, have criticized the legislation publicly.
Our Verdict: There has been no further elaboration or specification from Trump regarding this legislation. The bill has no real support and Trump's administration appears to be far more concerned with "illegal" immigration issues.
