|US President Donald Trump's administration on Thursday unveiled a sweeping new immigration plan to Congress that offers 1.8 million young unauthorized immigrants known as "Dreamers" a path to citizenship over 10-12 years.
Trump's comprehensive plan - which will be formally presented next week - includes eliminating the popular "green card lottery" programme and would severely restrict family immigration.
It would also require Congress to budget US$25 billion for a "trust fund" for constructing a wall on the US-Mexico border - a major plank of Trump's White House campaign.
"The Department of Homeland Security must have the tools to deter illegal immigrants; the ability to remove individuals who illegally enter the United States Jimmie Foxx Red Sox Jersey , and the vital authorities necessary to protect national security," a senior White House official told journalists.
The White House's offer of a path to citizenship for the Dreamers was much wider than expected. Earlier it had suggested it was only open to granting citizenship to the 690,000 young immigrants registered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA Bobby Doerr Red Sox Jersey , programme.
But in exchange, Trump was asking Congress to make future legal immigration more difficult - and to shore up the Homeland Security Department's toolbox and funding to crack down on the overall population of unauthorized immigrants, estimated at some 11 million including Dreamers.
SHARP TURN IN IMMIGRATION POLICY
The plan represents a sharp shift in US immigration policies. Trump promised during his 2016 presidential campaign a tough crackdown on illegal immigration, but has extended this to narrowing the doors for legal immigrations and refugees.
The end of the lottery system -- which was introduced in 1990 to diversify the origins of new immigrants - was expected and has support from some Democrats. Trump has argued the programme has allowed people into the country who have supported Islamic extremists.
"This programme is riddled with fraud and abuse and does not serve the national interest Mookie Betts Red Sox Jersey ," the White House said in a summary Thursday.
Trump however at least momentarily undermined his push against the lottery when, in immigration bill negotiations with lawmakers in early January, he complained about immigrants from what he reportedly dubbed "shithole" nations like Haiti, El Salvador and countries in Africa David Price Red Sox Jersey , sparking widespread outrage.
Trump has also argued for ending "chain" migration, the practice of allowing the extended family members of people who already have US citizenship to immigrate.
Thursday's proposal said that to "protect the nuclear family," family immigration would be only permitted for spouses and minor children.
BATTLE IN CONGRESS LIKELY
The White House plan immediately provoked the ire of Democrats, who made clear they would likely fight to water down the changes in negotiations in coming weeks.
Pro-immigration groups said it would reduce overall immigration by half.
"$25 billion as ransom for Dreamers with cuts to legal immigration and increases to deportations doesn't pass the laugh test Blake Swihart Red Sox Jersey ," said Democratic Representative Luis Gutierrez.
"The White House released a hateful, xenophobic immigration proposal that would slash legal immigration to levels not seen since the racial quotas of the 1920s," said Lorella Praeli, director of immigration policy at the American Civil Liberties Union.
But Republicans voiced strong support.
"I applaud the president for releasing a realistic framework that meets the four immigration pillars agreed by both Republican and Democratic leaders earlier this month Jackie Bradley Jr Red Sox Jersey ," said Republican Senator Thom Tillis.
"The framework proposes solutions supported by both parties and the American people: securing our borders, providing long-term certainty for DACA-eligible youth, and making our immigration system more merit-based," he said.
BEIJING Dustin Pedroia Red Sox Jersey , Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has called for better prevention of extremely severe workplace accidents despite improvements that have been made.
According to a written instruction to the national conference on workplace safety held on Thursday, Li said the issue had huge significance to economic and social development.
Last year, the total number of accidents including the number of extremely severe and severe accidents dropped substantially.
In 2018, more should be done on accountability and oversight. More preventive efforts are needed in key industries.
A nationwide workplace safety check from July to November last year involved more on-site inspections and tougher punishments.
"Extremely severe" refers to accidents that either cause more than 30 deaths Hanley Ramirez Red Sox Jersey , leave more than 100 severely injured or result in more than 100 million yuan (about 15 million U.S. dollars) in direct economic losses.
BEIJING: Apple chief Tim Cook's announcement of his homosexuality was the top topic on Chinese Internet forums on Friday, with many users lauding him as a hero - and some joking about his declaration.
Cook wrote in an essay for Bloomberg Businessweek that he was "proud to be gay" and considered his orientation among "the greatest gifts God has given me". He is the first chief executive of a major US corporation to come out to the world at large.
Apple's products are hugely popular in China, one of its key markets, but conservative attitudes are still engrained in the country - the government only decriminalised homosexuality in 1997 Xander Bogaerts Red Sox Jersey , and listed it as a mental illness for another four years. Nonetheless China's web users tend to be youthful and more liberal, and praised Cook for helping to make the world more inclusive.
"I'm really excited about this," wrote one poster on China's Twitter-like site Sina Weibo. "There must be many people who will no longer.
