This points-based immigration plan was introduced in Congress by Republican Senators David Perdue and Tom Cotton. Bill S.534, known as the RAISE Act, was originally presented in the Senate on February 13 and seeks to cut future legal immigration in half over 10 years ( Read the bill here). It sets requirements such as knowing English or having sufficient financial resources to support oneself. If this plan is approved, many new immigrants, who are currently allowed to enter the United States, would no longer be eligible.

Using this questionnaire (prepared by Univision News and based on the actual scores included in the proposal) you can find out if you have enough points to qualify.


These immigrants did not speak English when they arrived in the United States, but they still managed to shine.
