Trump wants an immigration system ‘like they have in Canada.’ Would a merit-based plan work in the U.S.?

CBC quoted Dan Hiebert, a UBC geography professor and immigration expert, in an article about Trump’s immigration policies.

“You can’t ever really discuss the U.S. immigration system without acknowledging the fact that there’s somewhere in the neighbourhood of 10 million undocumented migrants in the U.S.,” he said.
