Trump Proposes Green Cards for Graduates in U.S. Colleges

Donald Trump said he wants to give green cards to foreign students who graduate from U.S. colleges, showing a change in his usual tough stance on immigration, which is a key issue for the election.

The Republican candidate made these comments in a podcast on Thursday, shortly after President Joe Biden announced a citizenship pathway for immigrants married to U.S. nationals, balancing his recent strict measures on illegal border crossings.

“I think you should get a green card automatically when you graduate from a college,” Trump said on the All-In podcast.

A green card allows someone to live permanently in the United States and is a step towards becoming a citizen.

Trump said this should apply to anyone who graduates from a college, including those from two-year junior colleges and those with doctoral degrees.

When asked if he would help bring the “best and the brightest” to America, Trump replied, “I do promise.”

He shared stories of graduates who want to stay in the U.S. but can’t, so they return to countries like India or China, start big companies there, and become billionaires.

He also said U.S. companies need “smart people” and struggle to make deals because they fear these talented graduates won’t be able to stay in the country. “That will end on day one,” Trump added.

During Trump’s presidency from 2017 to 2021, he ordered the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and implemented a travel ban on people from mostly Muslim countries.

Trump’s comments came after Biden relaxed visa rules for about half a million spouses of U.S. nationals, making it easier for them to get citizenship. Biden also simplified the process for “Dreamers” – migrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children – to get work visas if they have graduated from college and have a “high-skilled job offer.”

Biden, often accused by Republicans of being too lenient on immigration, recently signed an executive order to prevent migrants who enter the U.S. illegally from claiming asylum when numbers exceed 2,500 in a day.
