Not New

Trump proposes a new points-based visa called the “Build America Visa”. Potential immigrants will receive more points for:

– Being younger
– Skills
– Employment offers
– Advanced education
– Higher wages
– Financial self-sufficiency
– Patriotic assimilation
– English knowledge

It’s identical to the Canadian merit-based system, except for the additional requirement for French. And it wasn’t “more points.” If you were over the age of 45 or had no degree in a very specific list of professions, they refused to look at your application altogether.

This is the exact process I went through 21 years ago.
