U.S. The White House has said that President Donald Trump is working on an executive order to establish a merit-based immigration system.
The White House announcement came soon after Trump said in an interview with Telemundo News channel that he is working on an immigration executive order which will include a “path to citizenship” for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.
Trump said his move on the DACA would be part of a much broader immigration bill in response to a request.
“It’s going to be a very big bill, a very good bill, and a merit-based bill, and it’s going to include DACA, and I think people will be very happy,” said the president.
