Recently President Trump and his administration launched a campaign to end chain migration.
In a new campaign, the Trump administration has undertaken to educate the American people on the issue of mass, legal immigration while also pressuring the Republicans in Congress—such as House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell—to end the process by which new immigrants are currently allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives with them to the U.S. This is commonly known as chain migration or extended family immigration to the U.S.
Ending chain migration has been a top priority of the Trump administration. Reports suggest that as many as 9 million immigrants have entered the country in the last decade on the basis of family based immigration. It is the driver of maximum low skilled immigrants to the country which indirectly increases burden on tax payers.
The white house has released a series of graphs that has impacted and is impacting the American people.
The highlights of the graphs mention:
In the last decade, more than 70% of the U.S. immigration was based on familial relations
More than half of all the immigrant headed households use one or more welfare programs
Every single day the U.S. permanently resettles more than 2,300 immigrants solely on the basis of family ties --- the number is good enough to match metropolitan high school.
Over the past ten years, these countries have sent the following number of chain migrants to the U.S.:
600,000 from India
600,000 from the Phillippines
500,000 from China
177,000 from Pakistan
Not only this but Chain migration has also additionally allowed foreign relatives living in countries designated as state-sponsors of terrorism, such as Iran, Syria, and Sudan, to freely come to the U.S.
In total, chain migration has imported more than 117,000 foreign nationals from these three terrorist-funding countries since 2005,
More than 80,000 Iranian nationals
Nearly 30,000 Syrian nationals
More than 8,000 Sudanese nationals
The above numbers reveal the reason why President Trump is repeatedly demanding and requesting congress to end chain migration.
