Let's talk about "Chain Migration" and what the WH is signalling
THREAD, won't number, will just mark when I'm done.
The term chain migration I only see used by people who are against #immigration. It seems to mean when any family members join an #immigrant
Wld that be a bad thing? Real economists (not ppl who took econ 101 &think they know something) show #immigration benefits receiving country
#immigrants create more jobs per capita than native born,show no reliably negative effect on wages,jobs (at most v mild),less prone to crime
Even if without lawful status! In other words,1st country who flings open the gates will make a bunch of money. 21st C politics v weird.
It's already hard to bring family over. Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) can only bring spouse and kids, citizens parents, siblings too
And that's it. Older kids esp if married and siblings face farcically long wait times, so much I tell people is not really an option often
So basically any chain migration is too modest right now, barely a trickle if you think about it. It's inhuman, tells #immigrants they have
to choose to be separated from their family with at most occasional visits for rest of their lives. You don't attract skilled labor that way
There's only benefits to "Chain Migration", no true downsides. It all comes down to bigotry and people who want less of "the other" around.
"National Security"? Huge majority of mass shootings, terrorist attacks are perpetrated by white native born men. Would you kick them out?
Many of those perpetrators also white supremacists,like the ones that create and endorse the WH tweet that started off this rant. Ironic,huh
The US's history was built on people risking it all then bringing their loved ones over, with heavy "chain migration" as nation was built
US is not perfect, but we got to world dominance by "chain migration". This stance will take us to global irrelevance. #NotMyAmerica. /end
This inc people without lawful status in receiving countries. In other words,1st country who opens the floodgates will make a bunch of money

Q: So you lost in #immigration court / #EOIR. Do you get to appeal? If so, how?
A: Depends!

Let's assume: 1st time in #immigration proceedings at all, you claimed relief like asylum &/or cancellation of removal. If not, may differ2/
You have 30 days to appeal to the BIA. Appeal must reach within 30 days. Like, for real. BIA = Board of Immigration Appeals. It's in DC. 3/
