[Ed. – Basically, “chain migration” IS a bad thing.]
A new report release by the Department of Homeland Security Tuesday shows 75-percent of convicted terrorists in America were born abroad. From the data:
According to a list maintained by DOJ’s National Security Division, at least 549 individuals were convicted of international terrorism-related charges in U.S. federal courts between September 11, 2001, and December 31, 2016. An analysis conducted by DHS determined that approximately 73 percent (402 of these 549 individuals) were foreign-born. Breaking down the 549 individuals by citizenship status at the time of their respective convictions reveals that:
-254 were not U.S. citizens;
-148 were foreign-born, naturalized and received U.S. citizenship and,
-147 were U.S. citizens by birth.
Many convicted terrorists came to the U.S. through chain migration, a program the Trump administration and Republicans are trying to end.
