Understanding Changes in US Immigration Policy

Changes to the United States Immigration system seems to be all the frenzy among news outlets nationwide. it is clear that implementing these changes to Immigration laws in this country has been placed on our government’s forefront. The changes to the immigration system can make the process of becoming a citizen confusing and frustrating for anyone.

Recently, the President announced yet another change to the Immigration process that would entirely change the way the Immigration system operates. If moved into legislation, the new process would gear towards a merit-based immigration system. Under the proposed plan, current family and employment-based immigration preference categories would be replaced with a system that awards points based primarily on age and education.  Although these changes have not yet been turned into legislation, they would greatly affect the Naturalization process if it backs the new law.
