More evidenceÂ has come to light showcasing a need for major reform as it pertains to immigration.
Nearly 120,000 foreign nationals have been allowed to enter the United States since 2005 despite coming from countries designated as state-sponsors of terrorism.
Previously unreleased data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reveals the scale to which foreign relatives of immigrants in the U.S. have been able to mass immigrate to the country over the last few decades. This process is known as â€œchain migration,â€ whereby new immigrants can bring an unlimited amount of foreign family members with them to the U.S.
In total, chain migration has imported more than 117,000 foreign nationals from the three countries that the State Department recognizes as state-sponsors of terrorism: Iran, Syria, and Sudan.
Our vetting processÂ is widely disputed but this just showcases the fact it doesn’t work. The idea that chain migration would apply to people from Terror-linked countries is beyond ridiculous. No-one claims all these people are terroristsÂ but the idea that we should invite troubleÂ onto our homeland is nonsensical. We have seen ISIS use people from these regions to carry out their worldwide Jihad and reformingÂ our system to not allow this to happen is a top priority.
