DURBIN: ‘Chain Migration’ is Racist, but He’s Said It

Illinois senator now attacking Trump for using the term, claiming the term is related to slavery…

(Breitbart) In 2010, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) advocated on the Senate floor for ending the process known as “chain migration,” whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S., a term that he now claims insinuates racism.

While asking Congress to pass the expansive and failed “DREAM Act” amnesty, which would start by legalizing millions of illegal aliens, Durbin touted the fact that the legislation at the time would have ended chain migration, preventing newly amnestied illegal aliens from bringing their extended family members to the U.S.

“The DREAM Act would not allow what is known as chain migration,” Durbin said. “In fact, DREAM Act students would have very limited ability to sponsor their family members for legal status.” [Emphasis added]

Durbin, though, is now attacking Trump for popularizing the term “chain migration,” claiming the technical immigration term that he has previously used is offensive to African-Americans, as Breitbart News reported:

That was the nature of this conversation. When it came to the issue of, quote, “chain migration,” I said to the president, do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African-Americans believe they migrated to America in chains and when you talk about chain migration, it hurts them personally. [Emphasis added]

… As Breitbart News reported, five years of chain migration to the U.S. adds more people to the country than one year of American births…Original Source
