Washington sources reported that Trump’s main points were first, that nearly 87% of 1.1 million of immigrants who get residency every year, get it on the basis of a relative (qualified or otherwise) or random chance, which could be humanitarian relief or other reasons. It's only a bare 11-13% who gets in on the basis of merit or skill. Meanwhile under the new plan, the last category would rise to about 60%, and the family centric selection would reduce precipitously.
Furthermore his second point should make many an Indian parent ecstatic. The President observes that under the previous system and so for those who are slaving to get their kids through college in the US, this could be a boost. Brilliant kids get to stay. As do brilliant workers. So the home country loses, but then they were losers anyway.
Moreover his third point is that the policy would also prioritize the immediate family of newly minted Americans. Instead of waiting in line with the others, they go “Right to the front of the line, where they should be.” It's sticky, but it could be that this will win him the new and ethnic Indian vote.
