Ike Brannon and Kevin McGee, The Washington Post Published 9:37 am PDT, Wednesday, March 27, 2019 President Donald Trump insists he wants to attract high-skilled legal immigrants, even while pushing for a wall on the southern border - but his administration is moving to deprive thousands of highly trained immigrants of the right to work. The argument for throwing these well-educated newcomers - holders of H-4 visas - out of the workforce is that it would open jobs for unemployed and underemployed U.S. citizens. It's a lousy rationale. Our research shows that this proposal would not create a single net job, and it would also cost the U.S. economy - and taxpayers - billions of dollars a year in lost revenue and reduced economic growth.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump held forth on all manner of things this past week as he emerged from a “lonely” spell over the holidays. He opined for more than 90 minutes to the press, at the top of a Cabinet meeting, on the shutdown, immigration, drug prices, the Soviet history in Afghanistan, his approval ratings, Syria, oil prices, the nature of walls, the attractiveness of his generals (“better looking than Tom Cruise”), and much more. He capped the week with a Rose Garden news conference that stretched for an hour. And he’s been tweeting a lot. Trump’s accounts did not show tremendous fealty to the facts. Here’s a sampling of what he said: THE WALL TRUMP: “We’ve already built a lot of the wall.” — Rose Garden news conference Friday. THE FACTS: He hasn’t.

Odette and Gilbert Dureland, who became naturalized Americans in 2012. Credit Credit Sharif Hamza for The New York Times Supported by BySeth Freed Wessler Dec. 19, 2018 On the morning of June 2, 2017, Odette Dureland woke to a loud knock on the door of the one-story bungalow that she shares with her husband and her children. She was recovering from minor surgery, so her 26-year-old daughter, Rebecca, rose to open the door. Outside, there was a group of federal agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Rebecca was confused: Everyone in her family was a citizen. She told the officers there must be a mistake. They told Rebecca there wasn’t; they had a warrant for the arrest of her mother.
