President Donald Trump announced an immigration plan put together by his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, that would prioritize merit-based immigration over family ties.

My cartoonist’s hypocrisy-meter went into overdrive when I remembered what sort of advantages both Trump and Kushner had in their earlier incarnations.

The Trump administration wants to shift immigration policies to focus on the best and the brightest.

And if you’re not quite the best or the brightest, having a father who can give $2.5 million to help you get into Harvard University can sure help.
