President Donald Trump will propose a new immigration system that gives preference to high-skilled immigrants such as scientists and engineers. But, the plan deals only with legal immigration, not the 11 million undocumented immigrants already living in the US or the roughly 3.6 million Dreamers, who were illegally brought into the country as minors. Developed by the senior adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, the plan is designed to create a merit-based point system for people seeking to enter the US and move away from the mostly family-based system in place today.
