The Truth About Chain Migration
After a comment regarding chain migration in President Trump’s State of the Union speech drew boos from the crowd, some began to ask if the comment was actually true. In a PolitiFact article, Maxwell immigration expert Elizabeth Cohen talks about the comment and whether it has factual basis. Her response was clear.
“This idea that an immigrant receives a visa and all of a sudden five or 10 close and distant relatives are being pulled in on a chain is completely unrepresentative of how our immigration system actually works,” Cohen says.
