Green Card for Students Upon Graduation: Donald Trump on All-In Podcast!

In stark contrast to his usually hawkish views on immigration, the presumptive Republican Party nominee for the 2024 US Presidential election has stated that international students should qualify for a green card upon graduation. In an interaction on the All-In podcast, a popular show hosted by Chamath Palihapitiya, Jason Calacanis, David Sacks, and David Friedberg, Trump categorically stated that anyone who graduated from a college even if it was a junior college and a 2-year degree should be automatically eligible for a green card.

“What I want to do and what I will do is, you graduate from a college, I think you should get automatically, as part of your diploma, a green card, to be able to stay in this country, and that includes junior colleges too. Anybody graduates from a college, you go there for two years or four years, if you graduate or you get a doctorate degree from a college, you should be able to stay in this country” said Trump when one of the hosts asked him to act upon a previous statement made by Trump that he wanted to attract the ‘best of the best’ to America.

Donald Trump, known for his bold and often controversial statements, has occasionally redacted his comments or failed to act on his promises. However, he has remained consistent in his views with regard to international students and migration for skilled individuals. In the podcast, Trump also lamented the fact that many graduates of top colleges went back to their own countries, set up successful business there and became billionaires. “I know of stories where people graduated from a top college and they desperately wanted to stay here and they had a plan for a company, a concept and they can’t, and they go back to India, they go back to China, they do the same basic companies at those places and they become multi-billionaires employing thousands and thousands of people and it could have been done here”.

This has set the educational sector in the USA and the international educational sector abuzz. However, there are several hurdles to be crossed if such a policy were ever to be implemented, including Congressional approval, getting the legislation over the line, and turning the immigration regime in the USA on its head.
