Stephen Colbert took aim at Trump’s new immigration plan, also known as the RAISE act (The Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act).
“Much better marketing than the original name: the Reforming American Citizenship Is Super Tough (RACIST) act. They didn’t use that. I don’t know why.”
Added Colbert: “Basically, Donald Trump wants to make ‘a merit based system’ which ‘awards points to green card applicants based on such factors as English ability.’ Yes, immigrants have to learn proper English like ‘Bigly’, ‘Covfefe’, and ‘Bing Bing Bing Bing Bing Bing Bing.'”
“Mr. President, wherever you are today, it’s not based on merit.”
