The United States’s current “chain migration” process is expected to add a potential 8 million new foreign-born voters to the country’s electorate over the next two decades, John Binder stated in a new Breitbart article.
Since 1964, the U.S. has been allowing more and more green cards to be issued. For the last decade we have allowed more than 1.5 million foreign nationals into the country. The majority of these immigrants are derived from family-based chain migration.
In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population hit an all time high. We now have over 44 million foreign nationals in the country. The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.
If trajectories stay the same, there is potential for 15 million new foreign-born voters in the next 20 years. Statistics show that most foreign-born voters vote for the Democratic Party.
President Trump has demanded an end to family-based chain migration. Out of the 15 million new immigrants, 7 to 8 million will be brought to the U.S. through chain migration.
Immigrants and their minor children account for one-fourth of those in poverty, one-fifth of those incarcerated and one-third of the uninsured. By increasing income equality and adding to the low-income population, the Democrats are likely to receive the majority of votes from this new wave of migration.
The Trump administration began to campaign, in 2017, to end family-based chain migration. Five years of chain migration has added more people to the U.S. than one year of American births.
The President has been highly criticized for taking this position, and most of his base are in agreement that it needs to be tossed. This is part of the reason that 63 million Americans voted for Donald J. Trump. A lot of middle class Americans feel that their voices haven’t been heard when it comes to immigration into the U.S.
Today, South Carolina Lindsey Graham, stated that “This country isn’t ours, it is the world’s.”
Graham’s statement begs the question, when will Americans be put first?
