The First Lady may object to that. She recently brought her parents over
Realistically parents are the worst because they come here and sign up for Social Security and Medicare

SSG(P) (Join to see) It is true that the Knavs live in the United States. But exuberant miscapitalization aside, their immigration status remains unclear: not only has the White House refused to comment, but immigration status is not a matter of public record. The Trump administration has, however, continually referred to the practice of issuing family reunification visas for parents, spouses or children as “chain migration.” Trump has called the practice a threat to national security despite the strict guidelines on which relatives are eligible, as well as annual caps on the amount of immigrants allowed to enter the country in this manner

SSG(P) (Join to see) and this is why I said it needs to be amended or taken out. re writing/amending it ...provision could be put in specifying this type of thing...like no automatic applying for SS...must be become a naturalized citizen...cannot receive SS benefit if only a permanent resident alien.

Used to be that way, somehow holding the sponsor responsible got lost. Australia, New Zealand and Canada require a large cash deposit.

Sgt Kelli Mays - You have to generally have 10 plus years working in the US to get Social Security benefits, whether you become a US citizen or not. There is an agreement between several countries and the US where if older immigrants worked into their country's equivalent of Social Security and then move here, they can get SS benefits under this arrangement.

Families make for more productive workers. Aunts, uncles and cousins aren't even covered by chain migration.

I don't understand recent attacks on keeping the immigrant families intact. Family constitutes an important support system and a lot more. Creating an arbitrary rule to prevent immediate family members form migrating together is a not so subtle, backhanded way of stopping or reducing all immigration. Anti-immigration xenophobes and white nationalists are hiding behind the claims that somehow "chain migration" is "bad" without any real, contextual data to support such claim. Again, stopping "chain migration" will amount to stopping most of migration to the U.S. Call a spade a spade.

SSG Jessica Bautista SPC Martin Wiesiolek Chain migration is too vague . If you read what I wrote, I said it either needs to be amended and have more specifics or done away with and something else written in it's place. It would be nice for those of you who read other peoples posts to ACTUALLY READ what they said ...instead you are still STUCK on Melania and how she got here and she is supposedly getting her parents citizenship. NOT what I wrote this post for.

Sgt Kelli Mays - You're right. I commented on the subject on the context of how Trump's administration is approaching it and the hypocrisy of Trump himself instead of your view on the immigration policy. So, back to your original comment, I thought that only parents, spouse, and children of an immigrant qualify for a sponsorship by an alien already in the U.S. Is is this not correct?
