Tonight, Trump will be addressing a joint session of Congress for the first time, and he may bring up a new immigration bill during that speech. A new immigration law has been one of the President’s top priorities during his first months in office, and he hopes to get one passed before his first term is over. Mr. Trump already has rhetoric about enforcing current immigration laws planned for his speech tonight. Trump does not envision a path for those who come here illegally to be able to become citizens. However, you can still hold out hope for children who came here illegally as long they don’t have any serious criminal offences, pay taxes, and hold a job. Immigrants who fit those descriptions shouldn’t have to worry about being deported, according to Trump. Senior officials say passing this new immigration law will be a negotiation between democrats and republicans, that will hopefully make both sides happy.
Our Verdict: Immigration is very important to this administration, since this was one of Trump’s main platforms during his campaign. Since republicans have the majority in the House and in the Senate, it looks likely that some new immigration law will be passed during Trump’s presidency. The only hope for this law is that it will be constitutional and fair to those already living in the U.S illegally, and hopefully democrats can put this bill off for as long as possible. So keep a watch out in the future to hear more about this new immigration bill.
