Trump proposes US citizenship plan for 1.8M undocumented immigrants

The administration of United States President Donald Trump unveiled on Thursday a sweeping new immigration plan to Congress that offers 1.8 million young unauthorized immigrants known as “Dreamers” a path to citizenship over 10-12 years.

Trump’s comprehensive plan – which will be formally presented next week – includes eliminating the popular “green card lottery” program and would severely restrict family immigration.

It would also require Congress to budget $25 billion for a “trust fund” for constructing a wall on the US-Mexico border – a major plank of Trump’s White House campaign.
