Over time, administration officials hope that the tough policy will shift the composition of the American immigration system by favoring wealthier immigrants.

If you don’t have a slow cooker, Wirecutter recommends the Hamilton Beach Set & Forget, and once you get one, NYT Cooking features a variety of easy slow-cooker recipes. The award-winning author of nine books, with themes revolving around gender, sex, race and nationality, is also the moderator of regular talks with African artists in a series sponsored by Goethe-Institut Nairobi, a nonprofit cultural association.
