The merit-based immigration plan introduced by President Donald Trump seems to already be in favor of skilled talent from overseas. President Trump gave a speech in the White House Rose Garden on 16 May 2019 where he made a proposal that the shares of immigration for high-skilled talent be increased from 12% to 57%. The president expressed his conviction that the time was ripe for America to adopt a merit-based system for issuing visas. The system will favor foreigners who have skills, are willing to work and contribute to American society. They will also be willing to love and respect America as a country. Many experts consider this good news for a lot of Indians. According to the founder and CEO of EB5 BRICS, Vivek Tandon, this is because out of the total pending employment-based applications for the American green card, 75% belong to Indian applicants. This is a vast contrast in the percentage of Indians whose applications for family-based green card applications are still pending. The percentage is at 7%, and this makes Indians more favored for the merit-based system. EB5 BRICS by the way is an immigration firm.
