Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen criticized the order brought by an Obama-appointed federal judge. Nielsen disapproves DACA, and many Republicans will sure agree with her on this one.
Nielsen went on Fox News with Chris Wallace and talked about the issues the US Department of Homeland Security faces. Most of the interview was focused on DACA.
DACA is an amnesty program created for 800,000 illegal aliens that was blessed by former president Barack Obama and developed by former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. DACA is a predecessor od DAPA, and President Trump had a good plan to shut it down.
“DACA Amnesty Chain Migration Would Exceed Four Years of U.S. Births
NEW YORK CITY, New York — The Democrats’ draft Dream Act amnesty would likely add as many chain-migration foreigners to the United States population as are added by the total number of Americans who are born in four years’ time.
As House and Senate Republicans, Democrats, the big business lobby, the cheap labor industry, and the open borders lobby have teamed up to push an amnesty for potentially millions of illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the impact the move would have on Americans would be likely unprecedented.
Under the current legal immigration system, immigrants who are given a pathway to U.S. citizenship are eventually allowed to bring extended family members, children, their parents, siblings, and extended family members to the country. This process, which makes up more than 70 percent of the current legal immigration, is what’s known as ‘chain migration.’
Research by the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) reveals that under a DACA amnesty deal, between about 800,000 and 3.5 million illegal aliens could be eligible for legalization to permanently remain in the U.S. Of those, MPI notes that 1.5 million of the estimated 3.5 million would be allowed to obtain U.S. citizenship.
According to Princeton University researchers Stacie Carr and Marta Tienda, newly naturalized Mexican immigrants in the U.S. bring an average of six foreign relatives with them. Therefore, should all 1.5 million amnestied illegal aliens bring six relatives each to the U.S., that would constitute a total chain migration of nine million new foreign nationals entering the U.S.
Chain Migration of Potentially 19M Foreign Nationals Would Follow Amnesty for Illegal Aliens -…
Amnesty for illegal aliens would lead to unprecedented chain migration of upwards of 10 million foreign nationals, under current law.
If the number of amnestied illegal aliens who gained a pathway to citizenship under an amnesty plan were to rise to the full 3.3 million, and if each brought in three to six foreign family members, the chain migration flow could range from 9.9 million to 19.8 million foreign nationals coming to the U.S.
