The US administration proposes a plan of naturalization 1.8 million illegal immigrants who entered the country as children, said President Donald trump.

«The first basis of our system offers a path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants who were brought here by their parents at a young age — it covers almost three times more people than (offered) the previous administration (USA). According to our plan, those who meet the requirements of education and work, showing good character, will be able to become full citizens of the United States,» said trump, in his annual speech «state of the Union» in Congress.

Among the other three «pillars» of immigration reform the President said the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico, ending the visa lottery and the so-called «chain migration», when the families of foreigners come to US in stages, one after another. These measures were previously announced by the White house that calls on Congress to adopt appropriate legislation.

In the USA there are over 10 million illegal migrants.
