Well, I do appreciate your answering directly.

Just a couple of questions, though:

(1) Do you really believe that "85 violent attacks" is a number sufficiently large to establish a trend?

And (2) you note that 74 percent of these attacks (about 63) resulted in "225 deaths." This begs the question: Just how many deaths resulted from the 24 percent (roughly 20) that were the work of "radical Islamic extremists (or Jihadists, for the non-politically correct)?

That is not how the term is used by Donald Trump or other white nationalists that are referring to it today. They're referring to the preferences given in our immigration laws to immediate family members of US citizens or permanent residents in the United States often falsely stating it provides cousins, second cousins, or other extended family members with preferred immigration status.

The Cotton-Purdue "RAISE (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment) Act" is an example of what the racist white nationalists are talking about when they refer to ending "chain migration" to the United States.


So if you and others are referring to "chain migration" as defined by Wikipedia then it doesn't exist in our immigration laws because no preference is given based upon what town a person comes from. If you're talking about close family members that do receive preferential treatment in our immigration laws they you're not talking about chain migration at all.

Pick one or the other but you can't have it both ways.

Chain migration that doesn't exist.
Family based migration that does exist.
Sounds like you need to get ahold of Wikipedia and inform them that it does not follow your Shivapedia. Maybe those folks at Wiki are a bunch of racists, ya think?

Remember now, you were going to show us where your Racist meaning of Chain Migration comes from. Or is it just from Shivapedia?
