Why the White house is searching for-end-of-chain-migration

Between 2005 and 2015, the USA permanently around 9.3 million new immigrants resettled on the basis of family ties; James Rosen is in-depth for the ‘special report.’

The attempted suicide-bomb attack in New York early Monday would never have happened if President Trump the immigration policy, the White house said, after it was revealed that the terror suspect had entered the country via chain migration.

Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi government said the pair, allegedly pipe-bomb strapped to his body with Velcro and cable ties, and it detonated in a subway corridor, the New York Police Department officers. Hours later, the Department of Homeland Security confirmed to Fox News that Ullah was taken in the United States upon presentation of a passport F43 family view immigrant visa in the year 2011.

“The suspect is a lawful Permanent resident from Bangladesh, the benefits of the extended family chain migration,” DHS spokesman Tyler Houlton said in a statement.

This prompted White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to note that President Trump has railed against the so-called “chain migration”, by the dozens of immigrant relatives in the U.S. will be able to give simply because your family has managed to member it.

“The President is called the policy, for an end to chain migration,” said Sanders. “If you had, that would have prevented this Person from coming to the United States.”

Trump, in a statement, blamed the attack on America’s “lax immigration system that allows far too many dangerous, not sufficiently tested, people access to our country.”

“Today’s terrorist suspects in our country through the extended family chain migration, which is incompatible with the national security,” the statement read. To limit “my Executive action, the entry of certain nationals of eight countries, which allowed the Supreme court in the recent time effectively, is only a step forward in the protection of our immigration system. Congress must end chain migration.”

“The terrible damage that this flawed system inflicts on America’s security, and the economy has long been clear. I am determined to continue to improve our immigration system, our country and our people first,” the statement continued.

The President has pushed to streamline and reform the existing immigration laws with his State Department and Department of Homeland Security, and was largely responsible for the introduction of the concept of chain migration in the national immigration debate.


Trump ramped up calls to end the chain migration after the Halloween terror attack in New York City, to the support of the Republicans in Congress.

The alleged perpetrator of the Halloween-terror-attack, Sayfullo Saipov, in the United States by the State Department, the Diversity Immigrant Visa program. The President, along with some congressional Republicans have demanded the repeal of the program.

“We now have two terrorist attacks in New York City in less than two months, were carried out by people who came here, as a result of our failed immigration policies that do not serve the national interests—the diversity lottery and chain migration,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Monday. “It is a failure of logic and sound policy is not to adopt merit-based immigration system.”
