The Leftist Democrats have gone so far overboard with political correctness that they may no longer be living in the same reality as the rest of the world.
Senator Dick Durbin has proven to be one of those Democrats in his most recent comments on Chain Migration.
On Friday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) claimed that he rebuked President Trump when he used the term “chain migration” during his bipartisan meeting on Wednesday:
When it came to the issue of “chain migration,” I said to the president: “Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African Americans believe that they migrated to America in chains, and when you speak about chain migration, it hurts them personally.” He said: “Oh, that’s a good line.”
As Alex Griswold of The Washington Free Beacon notes, an October 2007 press release from Durbin’s official website in which lawmakers are urged to support the DREAM Act uses the term “chain migration”:
The DREAM Act would NOT lead to “chain migration”. DREAM Act beneficiaries would have very limited ability to sponsor family members. They could never sponsor extended family members and they could not begin sponsoring siblings or parents for at least six years.
According to TIME, chain migration is “the process by which one immigrant is admitted to the country, then he or she sponsors relatives back home to come to the U.S., who in turn could sponsor more relatives.”
