I want to just say something about the word that they use, ‘merit.’ It is really a condescending word. Are they saying family is without merit? Are they saying most of the people who have ever come to the United States in the history of our country are without merit because they don’t have an engineering degree? Certainly, we want to attract the best to our country, and that includes many people from many parts of society.
And, again, if you want me to, I will quote Ronald Reagan. I would just ask you to go to his last speech as President of the United States and what he said about newcomers to our country being the vital force of America’s preeminence in the world. . . . Every President has recognized that since Ronald Reagan, except this President. So, we’ll see what values are reflected there.
