Trump made a U-Turn from his earlier 2020 presidential elections statement of  “immigrants are poisoning the blood of America”. Thus, if I were elected as President of the USA, I would return a large number of immigrants to their country, promising that foreign-born students who graduate from American universities would be eligible for green cards.

According to the news report, Donald Trump in an interview promised foreign-born college graduates from any two-year or four-year institution to provide legal permanent residency if he’s re-elected president in the November 2024 election.

In order to prevent US varsity graduates going to other countries including China and India after completing their studies, Trump has promised to give them an automatic green card believing those skilled graduates can make significant contributions to America.
