Donald Trump won the US election on three issues – immigration reform, fair trade and getting out of foreign wars.
Trump wants to reform immigration. US has two kinds of immigration – illegal and legal.
Trump’s action on illegal immigration would not effect India. But, reform of legal immigration is going to effect India negatively.
Trump wants to allow legal immigrants which don’t become a burden on US. For this he wants legal immigrants to have knowledge of English, a college degree and a job in US so that they are financially independent. The only country which has such people is India.
Trump wants 5,00,000 legal immigrants a year in US. Majority of them will be Indians. They will create huge wealth for USA. They will create the next level of technology and the largest companies which will dominate the world.
But, India will lose it’s most talented manpower. It would be difficult for India to create the next level of technology and industry which can challenge the US.
