Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Eighty KRLD. A lot of talk over the years about the need to reform the US immigration laws, and this week, President Trump proposed a merit based green card system for legal migrants. Now, immigration attorney, Eric sedillo talks about the president's latest proposals KRLD Mitch card. Focusing. Limiting wasn't a truly wasn't a total comprehensive immigration reform. And if you mentioned, you know, even Republicans for maintaining that it wasn't I don't think meant to become law. More perhaps campaign fodder for twenty twenty but specifically what it addresses is the number of permanent residents individuals or who's receiving those, we in this country, a lot about a million little over a million permanent Rosen cards. And since the sixties, of course, those have been allotted and, and taking conformity with a family unity, plant, he wants to shift that up shifted up and, and a lot those numbers to hire skilled individuals. I don't know how that would work in terms of, of how those individuals would come here and not have the ability to sponsor their own families. We'd have this reason I think we've, we've utilized it to make sure that people are becoming a scottsd- in our country, or, or of course adopting. Our country is their own establishing routes. It helps her economy. It's just a very workable thing. I don't know how it would work if we're a lot in those million permanent residents to individuals in this highly skilled jobs, in how that would affect our current employees here in the United States. I don't know that we have enough ability or flexibility to, to modify, according to our needs. So I think it's a plan this kind of being thrown out there. I don't think it's being taken too seriously certainly by congress from what we're hearing. So again, I think is something that, that I think the plan would have to truly be fleshed out in order for it to be more effective. Of course, it doesn't take into consideration the current to undocumented population that we have in the country, and it doesn't address the, the DACA recipients, dreamers as well.

These are things that, that were not taking into consideration that we've always had always been the underpinning of what the United States has always been about. We need migration. Our current US citizenry is, is getting older, and, you know, beyond childbearing age, and we're having less children. So we really need to take care of that situation to understand, you know, the fifty sixty seventy year olds we're not gonna have the ability to be supported when, when we're in our golden years. So these are things that really needs to be looked at long term. And, and we're just doing a disservice to ourselves by by squashing that at this point Dallas, emmigration attorney Eric's DO talking with Mitch. Car about the president's latest proposals on immigration reform, even though there's a movement to eradicate body shaming and promote self acceptance a poll done by the mental health foundation reveals about twelve percent of people eighteen and older have considered suicide over body image.
