“Chain Migration”

Yesterday the fools at Fox & Friends spent a few minutes wringing their hands as they told the story of a woman from Honduras who crossed into the U.S. as a refugee as part of one of those nefarious “caravans” and promptly shot out a baby boy moments after she set foot on American soil.  With the help of an immigration lawyer who looked as if she couldn’t believe the degree to which she was compromising her integrity just to be on television for three minutes, The Clueless Trio discussed with her the process the woman and her baby would then undergo.  Eventually they concluded that if the woman’s claim to refugee status was rejected she either would have to return to Guatemala with her baby or she would return to Honduras and the baby could stay here, as a ward of the state.

But here’s where it gets interesting.

They then discussed the possibility that the rejected mom and baby would return to Honduras and the baby would grow into a young man who returns to the U.S. when he turns 21 to claim his rights as a citizen (and, unspoken, to join MS-13, sell drugs, and rape American women).  As part of the exercise of that right, he also would be able to bring his parents and siblings into the U.S. through what is known as “chain migration,” which they all agreed is very, very bad.

The poster child

The Curmudgeon saw this report while riding the stationary bike in the morning.  When he finished and ascended from the basement he described to Mrs. Curmudgeon the story he just heard.

To which Mrs. Curmudgeon replied, with her typical, understated simplicity, “Just like Melania.”
