"Chain Migration" - What is it, and why opposing it is Un-American

US immigration

Daily Kos contributor Jen Hayden, has an excellent article on the origins of the non-immigration slur "Chain Migration." Hint: it's really family-based immigration, which has been a bedrock of our immigration system for decades, and accounts for approximately two-thirds of lawful immigrants coming to the United States.

The article, Trump Social Media Director tweets about ending 'chain migration,' ends up with rare genealogy burn ,, is an instructive read on how ill-advised and hypocritical this proposal is, and why its advocates are both ignorant of their own origins, and seeking changes that would greatly damage American society as we know it.
