Trump Says He Wants Better-Educated Immigrants. His Plan Does The Opposite. (Washington Post)
February 4, 2018
From the article:
THE TRUMP administration’s proposed immigration overhaul would cut not only immigrant inflow generally but especially the number of minority migrants, which may help address Republican fears about the long-term “browning” of the electorate — a trend that could benefit Democrats. Beyond that, one consequence of the administration’s goals may come as a surprise: It would slash not only the number of immigrants with a university or advanced degree but also the average educational attainment among immigrants who are admitted.
