President Trump told attendees of a campaign-style rally in Youngstown last night he is working with two Republican U.S. Senators to create a new immigration system.
Trump is endorsing legislation introduced by Tom Cotton and David Perdue putting new limits on legal immigration. The president says it would create a merit-based system that protects workers and the economy.
Trump also touted his administration's approach to illegal immigration and illegal gangs. He insisted a massive wall on the U.S.-Mexico border will be built, but did not say how it would be funded.
He also watched as a protester was removed from the rally.
Trump also praised the U.S Senate for taking a step to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. But late last night, the Senate voted to block a wide-ranging bill replacing the ACA with a more restrictive GOP substitute sponsored by majority leader Mitch McConnell. Nine Republicans voted no, including Ohio's Rob Portman.
