The President likes legal immigration

From his 2019 Satte of The Union Speech to Congress

“Legal immigrants enrich our nation and strengthen our society in countless ways,” the president said. “I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.”

Despite the president’s rhetorical focus on a border wall and stopping migrants from entering the country illegally, his immigration policy has so far had significant effects on the number of people coming into the U.S. legally, a number that dropped in fiscal year 2018, according to government data reviewed and analyzed by POLITICO. A series of policy changes has made it more difficult for employers to obtain foreign workers, according to business groups and immigration attorneys.
