Sarah Sanders: Actually, Merit-Based Immigration System Is More Fair, Less Racist

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders pushed back strongly against accusations that the president’s merit-based immigration policy is racist at Tuesday’s press briefing, saying: “By definition, a merit-based system is color blind. It is not based on any of that criteria. It is not based on race, it is not based on religion, it is not based on country of origin. It is actually based on the merits of whether or not this person will be contributing to society.”

“No, it is not” about race, she said. “It actually levels the playing field and is the opposite of what you are suggesting.”
