Trump's New Immigration Policy

Trump's own family wouldn't get in.

Donald Trump this week unveiled his new immigration plan that would prioritize skilled workers who could speak English.
But if Congress had adopted such rules in the past then relatives of most of his cabinet - and ancestors of the President himself - would likely never have been admitted to America.
The immigrant backgrounds of many members of Trump's team are a matter of pride for them but our test suggests their ancestors' hopes of crossing the Atlantic to build new lives would have been broken on the rocks of the new immigration system the president wants Congress to pass.

Key advisers and cabinet members including his son-in-law Jared Kushner would probably have had their ancestors turned away because they were not desirable enough.
Vice President Mike Pence would definitely not be here as his grandfather was the penniless son of a tailor from rural Ireland.
DailyMail.com looked into the past of the President and his top aides to see who would have been allowed in under Mr Trump's proposed rules.
We also calculated an estimate of the score they may have received from a border agent upon their arrival, based on the guidelines from the Trump White House.

How did they do?? AND how about the first lady??

This policy is opposed by nearly every business group in the country, that's not a formula for passing legislation.
