GOP Bill Curbs Legal Immigration disproportionately hitting nonwhite Americans


The Huffington Post reports that Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) introduced a bill last week that would bar immigrants from bringing almost anyone but their spouses and minor children to the United States, cutting legal immigration per year by half. Latino and Asian Americans, who are more likely to be recent immigrants with family living abroad, would be disproportionately affected by this change. The bill would also eliminate diversity visas, which many recent African nationals rely on as their only option for immigrating to the United States. The bill also intends to cap refugee resettlement at 50,000 people per year.
