Jared Kushner, White House senior adviser, is preparing an immigration proposal that could see high skilled migrants in the US get increased US visa. The merit-based proposals are expected to reach President Trump next week, who will decide whether they are fit for official adoption or to send them back for changes. A senior official in the administration revealed that meetings, nearly 50 sessions, have been held with conservative groups concerning the immigration plan. There has also been intense work between Kushner and other top White House officials including policy adviser Stephen Miller and economic adviser Kevin Hassett. Kushner confirmed on Tuesday that he is working with his longtime co-adviser for Mr. Trump, Miller, on the immigration plan and they have not had any fights. According to familiar sources, people with Temporary Protected Status and children under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are not included in the proposals being prepared by Kushner. There has been called from the US business community that the number of visas for highly skilled is increased in order to pull more employees into the US for specialized jobs, a sentiment which Mr. Trump shares. Officials revealed the primary purpose of the plan is to see the visa program reshaped into a more merit-based one. Canada and Australia form the bedrocks of the models being reviewed in achieving the plan. The plan will either raise the number of highly skilled migrants received each year slightly or leave it the same, the sources said.
