Kellyanne Conway: Congress unsuccessful to act on immigration
Counselor to a boss Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s merit-based immigration devise on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
President Trump’s advisor Kellyanne Conway seemed on “The Ingraham Angle” Thursday night to foster a administration’s “two-point” devise to residence bootleg immigration — accusing some in Congress of being invested in a “status quo.”
“There’s dual points to a president’s large proposal,” Conway told horde Laura Ingraham. “Full and final limit security, that he’s been articulate about for 4 years he’s been using for and being president. The second partial is a modernization and merit-based immigration system.”

Trump on Thursday denounced a long-awaited immigration renovate that would dramatically change how a U.S. accepts people into a country, upending a complement in sequence to preference pursuit skills rather than family ties.
Ingraham asked Conway if a immigration height was meant as an emanate for Republicans to run on in 2020 though a president’s advisor done it transparent it was about regulating a problem now.

“This is not a 2020 document. If a Congress can act now we’re meddlesome in 2019. In further to full limit security, also this modernizes a complement that has not been overwhelmed given 1965 — fifty-four years,” Conway said.

Conway also criticized members of Congress, some of whom she pronounced were “invested in a standing quo.”
“And also we wish to gleam a light [on a fact that] nobody in Congress has disturbed to hold a authorised immigration complement in 54 years. Why is that? Because some of them are invested in a standing quo,” Conway said. “They fake they’re disturbed about a children, they fake they’re disturbed about a families.”
