Who gets priority if Trumps point based immigration plan gets approved?

President Trump supports a new plan to curb legal immigration based on a point system, similar to models used by Australia and Canada. 30 points, awarded by age, education, English ability, among other factors, are needed for potential immigrants to apply. The ideal candidate would be 26-31 years old, have an advanced degree, speak fluent English... and be relocating for a job paying triple the median income. Extra points would be awarded for extraordinary achievement, such as a Nobel Prize or Olympic medal... and to those investing upwards of $1.3 million in a new commercial enterprise. The bill, introduced by Republican Sens. David Perdue and Tom Cotton, which Trump endorsed in a speech, awaits approval by Congress. Aug 4, 2017
