Akayed Ullah is a 27 year-old Bangladeshi immigrant who entered this country in 2011thanks to chain migration. That fact is indisputable. What is also indisputable is that Ullah attempted to carry out a bombing in New York on December 11 that failed thanks to the wannabe-suicide bomber’s stupidity.
Tweeting about the incident, President Trump said, “CHAIN MIGRATION cannot be allowed to be part of any legislation on Immigration!”
The tweet would appear to return the President from his Chuck Schumer-induced wayward wanderings to his 2016 campaign stance of more protective immigration laws. This former stance was best exemplified in President Trump’s support of Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-Ark.) ‘Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act (S. 354)’, which would cut LEGAL immigration by half by ending chain migration, reports NumbersUSA.

The immigration website rightfully notes that chain migration “is the primary mechanism that has caused legal immigration in the U.S. to quadruple from about 250,000 per year in the 1950s and 1960s to more than 1 million annually since 1990. As such, it is one of the chief culprits in America’s current record-breaking population boom and all the attendant sprawl, congestion, and school overcrowding that damage Americans’ quality of life.”
The President addressed the dangers of chain migration in his public statement on the New York incident. The Daily Caller quotes Trump as saying:
“Today’s terror suspect entered our country through extended-family chain migration, which is incompatible with national security. My Executive action to restrict the entry of certain nationals from eight countries, which the Supreme Court recently allowed to take effect, is just one step forward in securing our immigration system. Congress must end chain migration.
“Congress must also act on my administration’s other proposals to enhance domestic security, including increasing the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, enhancing the arrest and detention authorities for immigration officers, and ending fraud and abuse in our immigration system. The terrible harm that this flawed system inflicts on America’s security and economy has long been clear. I am determined to improve our immigration system to put our country and our people first.”

The deal forming between Sen. Schumer and Trump, currently looks to give citizenship to at least 3 million illegals through the “Dream Act.”
“But those 3 million could bring another several million immigrants — and likely Democratic voters — via ‘chain migration’ during the following ten years,” notes Breitbart.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) calls such a deal potentially the biggest act of amnesty in U.S. history and it is not hard to see why.
As NumbersUSA explains:
“The Original Immigrant is allowed to bring in his/her nuclear family consisting of a spouse and minor children. After that, the chain begins. Once the Original Immigrant and his/her spouse becomes a U.S. citizen, they can petition for their parents, adult sons/daughters and their spouses and children, and their adult siblings.”
For those relatives who come to believe that chain migration is a right, there may be a tendency, writes NumbersUSA, to enter the country illegally instead of waiting the mandatory time.
Is it any surprise, upon learning this that the immigration situation, is out of control?
Perhaps the President is finally convinced that Schumer’s way is the way of more death for innocent Americans.
What is your reaction?
