Trump to support high-skilled immigrants over families

Hosted by

President Trump today hosted two Republican Senators at the White House with a new bill that they say would cut legal immigration in half in 10 years. Green cards would be available based on high skills and the demonstrated ability to make a living. But Tony Blinken, Deputy of Secretary of State for President Obama, told CNN the requirement for high skills was dangerously exclusive.

Heather Long, economics correspondent for the Washington Post, looks at the bill and its support from the business community.
