Phoenix Chamber CEO: New Immigration Bill 'A Little Bit Of A Head-Scratcher'

President Trump has thrown his support behind a new immigration bill, called the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment, or RAISE Act.

The measure deals with legal immigration and was introduced by a pair of GOP senators.

Among other things, the bill would allocate points to prospective immigrants based on criteria including education, their ability to speak English and offers of high-paying jobs.

With me to talk about the measure is Todd Sanders, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce.
