Trump Announces Green Cards For All US Univ Graduates, What’s In For Indian Students?


Washington, DC: Former President Donald Trump announced his intention to grant automatic green cards to foreign students graduating from American colleges, enabling them to stay in the United States. The Former President underscored the significance of retaining the world’s brightest minds who seek to contribute to the nation’s growth and emphasized their potential to drive innovation within the country.

Why Has Donald Trump Announced It?

NewsMobile Editor-In-Chief Saurabh Shukla emphasised the strategic significance of states such as Georgia and Pennsylvania, where the substantial presence of Indian American voters holds considerable electoral sway. Trump’s proposal aims to differentiate skilled immigrants from those entering illegally, addressing perceived disparities in immigration prioritization.

By advocating for skilled immigration, Trump and the Republican Party aim to project a pro-immigrant stance ahead of forthcoming elections. However, the feasibility of this policy shift depends on legislative approval, raising doubts about its implementation amid existing immigration quotas.

Can President Trump Implement This Policy?

NM EIC Shukla highlighted that while the President holds significant executive authority, any substantial increase in green card allocations, currently capped at 140,000 annually by Congress, would require congressional approval. This limitation underscores the complexity of Trump’s proposal, which aims to prioritize skilled immigration while also addressing concerns surrounding illegal immigration.

Shukla also points out the political implications of Trump’s proposal, suggesting it could influence voter sentiment among Asian Americans and other immigrant communities affected by lengthy green card backlogs. The proposal highlights a broader debate over immigration reform, particularly concerning skilled workers who contribute to the US economy but face bureaucratic hurdles in obtaining full employment authorization and travel rights.

Can The Democratic Party Come Up With A Counter?

The NewsMobile Editor-In-Chief pointed out that as President Joe Biden maintains a narrow lead, there is mounting pressure on the Democratic Party to adopt unconventional strategies. Specifically, there’s growing pressure for Biden to consider executive orders aimed at alleviating green card backlogs, potentially reshaping the electoral landscape with policies addressing the concerns of millions awaiting permanent residency in the United States.

How Will It Impact Students Who Are In Colleges Or Who May Take Admissions In The Future?

NewsMobile Editor-In-Chief Saurabh Shukla shed light on the significant uncertainties facing current and prospective college students. Shukla underscored the potential impact of the upcoming U.S. presidential election, particularly if Donald Trump is reelected and attempts to implement proposed immigration reforms within the limited scope of green card allocations.

Shukla pointed out that immigration has become a bipartisan issue following Trump’s recent announcement, suggesting that the Democratic Party might counter by advocating for congressional action to increase green card quotas. This action is particularly crucial for skilled immigrants, including those from India, who face extensive backlogs in categories like EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3.

Highlighting the comparative disadvantage faced by Indian immigrants, Shukla noted that nationals from other South Asian countries, such as Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, often receive faster pathways to green cards. The need for legislative approval to address these disparities and streamline the process for skilled immigrants remains a significant challenge.
