That analogy is completely off since the basis of chain migration is that there's a chain to something. You know who melanie and her family are chained to? Her husband Donald Trump. So he (and his immediate family) are direct beneficiaries of the law he protests.


You work really hard to try and twist simple reality.

That depends. In this scenario, do you want to get rid of all democrats? If this were the case and you kept your wife around then yes, that would make you a hypocrite.

Donald Trump wants to end chain migration for OTHER families, though his wife's family benefited from it. Further, you can guarantee he would look for ways to make exceptions for families of associates of his (read: white "desirable" immigrants). That is the very definition of hypocrisy. I've questioned your intelligence, but I believe you're smart enough to get that, so the only reason to obfuscate on this is pure disingenuousness, which I find worse than someone being stupid because someone who is stupid doesn't know better.

Right, but they came in through chain migration many years ago. It’s done. Like, I don’t understand what you’re wanting him to do here. Use his power as president to somehow prevent them from getting citizenship, strip them of their green cards and have them deported?

well, the don is proposing to kick out citizens who came via chain migration... hence would be ironic now that his wifeí s parents would get kicked out as well if heís true to his word... but would be a hypocrite if he somehow gets them exempt from it

By the way, Trump is only two years younger than his father-in-law.

Exactly this. But he can't do something like that. Besides, most 2nd generation citizens I know are becoming doctors and lawyers and engineers. They ain't about that poor life their parents lived. ASSETS to this country and economy.

Iíve NEVER heard that.

1. You canít kick citizens out. Theyíre citizens.

2. His original plan limited chain migration to spouses and minor children. The most recent version actually includes parents, so even under Trumpís most recent plan, Melaniaís parents wouldnít be effected.

I edited the thread title because I forgot the M in Melania. There was nothing to edit in my post because all I posted was 2 links and a 3 word sentence. Notice how Im a ghetto trash poster for that. I know exactly what Im talking about when I discuss race and the more upset and offended they get, the more Im being proven correct. But racists always show their true colors. I can laugh because he would never say it to my face. No need for you to waste your time responding to him, I dont. I focus on topics and discussion. He just throws his ignorant thoughts and whataboutism in every topic. Once he has something insightful to provide, Im sure he'll let us know.
