President Trump's new, soon-to-be-announced immigration plan "fundamentally changes the way we think about immigration," Axios reporter Jonathan Swan said Wednesday.

Trump is scheduled to deliver a major immigration address on Thursday, Fox News has learned, as the White House is set to formally unveil the plan.

The proposal is said to put an end to the visa lottery system and instead implement a comprehensive merit-based admissions procedure, three senior administration officials told Fox News.

"The most important thing about this proposal is that it fundamentally changes the way we think about immigration," Swan said on "Special Report," as part of the "All-Star Panel."

"It flips on its head [the idea that] typically we take the bulk of people based on their family ties. This completely reverses that and it looks at skills and education," he said.

Potential immigrants would be assessed using a point-based system, accounting for factors including age, English proficiency, whether each candidate has an offer of employment above a certain wage threshold, and educational and vocational certifications, Fox News reported.

You sneak across the border you are a criminal. We don't want criminals coming into the USA.

Catch and release laws requires Border Patrol to release illegal immigrants to the US, whenever they claim asylum and a fear of harm if deported back to their country. Trump wishes to build a wall along the US Mexico Border, and some portions of this wall is, or will be physically set back some distance from the actual legal border. It would be a great idea to bus illegals that claim asylum, or otherwise may not be deported, to areas where the wall is set back some distance from the legal border. Technically this would not be a deportation, because they will be dropped off inside the legal boundaries of the US. A good wall, fences, gates, checkpoints, etc.. should prevent those lacking legal status from passing thru the checkpoints along the wall and entering, or re-entering the US. It would be nice to have some water and shade available at the drop off points.

There are many large national parks, forests and other public lands along the border with Mexico. Instead of just one wall, two or more walls may be constructed on the US side of the border, and they may allow unrestricted travel south, to exit from the US to Mexico. Northbound travel would be restricted by typical customs and immigration checkpoints. Some illegals could be transported to campgrounds on the north/US side of the walls, fences and gates that will prevent these illegal campers from passing north thru checkpoints to the US, but allow an easy exit south to Mexico. Again, these illegal asylum seekers would still be within the US, and technically this would not be a deportation. Many nice campgrounds could be built with showers, picnic tables, pavilions, bathrooms, BBQ grills, etc.. and these campgrounds would enhance the national parks and be available to US campers after the immigration crisis is over. Make US Campgrounds Great Again.
