Donald Trump is already pushing all kinds of new immigration laws. Why not just adopt the merit-based system? The US could benefit and keep a safe record, as well as push others in other countries to boost their education. Our economy could receive a huge benefit from this, adding much more smart people to benefit our economy. If we don't do this, who knows what kinds of benefits we're missing out on?
