Foreign citizens have the opportunity to work in America throughout the life of Green Card. And green card holders have the right to become American citizens after five years. The United States releases 11 million green cards annually. According to the current policy 66 percent of the green cards are given on family basis. The number of green card issuing companies is only 12% for those who are professional and highly skilled. But Trump had already expressed the desire to introduce a new immigration policy to increase the number of skilled employees. Accordingly, on Friday, he proposed a new immigration policy.

Trump said at this time, ‘Our commitment to the people living here will be fulfilled due to this proposal. Also, the migrants who come here tomorrow will be welcome. America is still a welcoming country of immigrants. We want immigrants to come to this country. Of course, the number of people with quality and skill should be large. With the new policy, immigrants from any country can start their own business in America. There has been no change in the number of green cards issued every year in the new policy.

We are adopting simple, global standards for migrants to access the US. Where is your birthplace, no matter who your relatives are. If you want to become a US citizen, we will make clear what quality you would like to have.
