Trump wants to reduce legal immigration

Hosted by , and

President Trump wants to reduce legal immigration and change the rules for who can immigrate. Is this a good idea? Should there be a merit system, including whether someone speaks English? Should we be happy to see leaked transcripts from Trump's conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia? Anthony Scaramucci has stepped aside and John Kelly is in at the White House. Can the new calm last? Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in the Russia investigation. What implications does that have? And experts assess the upcoming prospects for tax reform.
