A thread on Trump's new buzzword, #ChainMigration.

You'll hear it constantly now. Some horrendous threat that must end in order to move on the #DreamAct. (Plus a wall.)

But how new is it? And what does it actually mean? @Allandaros and I investigated.
First, the term chain migration exists nowhere in the immigration law. Not in the Immig & Nationality Act, the CFR, field manuals, memos, or FAQ's.

The term for individuals sponsoring their family members is called (surprisingly): family-based immigration.
Our immigration laws only allow spouses, parents, children, and siblings to be petitioned. You must be a permanent resident or US citizen in order to do it. Sometimes the wait is 1 year or so. Other times, decades.

There's no direct way to sponsor an uncle, grandparent, etc.
