Last June, CNN’s Jim Acosta got into a heated discussion with White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller over Trump’s support of an immigration policy which rewarded those who spoke English. Acosta remarked:
“It sounds like you’re trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country.”
Although the White House denied it at the time, Acosta nailed it.
Last Thursday’s tenth GOP presidential debate felt like a WWE SummerSlam event. By the halfway point, I wouldn’t have been surprised if Donald Trump had walked off stage and tagged Chris Christie to come out and slam a folding chair against Marco Rubio.
Last week, President Obama announced a new immigration policy that will benefit thousands of people. The policy allows illegal immigrants to file for a two-year deferral from deportation, with the possibility of renewal. The criteria for eligibility are:
Under the age of 30 and arrived in the United States before the age of 16
Have lived in the United States for five continuous years
Individuals who do not have a criminal record
Individuals who are successful students (High School Diploma or GED) or served in the military
Those that meet the requirements are also eligible to apply for work permits.
