FAIR Update: Support HR 938

This just in from NumbersUSA...

H.R. 938 IS CLOSE TO BEING THE 'MAGIC BULLET' FOR SOLVING OUR IMMIGRATION PROBLEMS.

As we predicted on our Home page yesterday, Congressman Phil Gingrey (R-GA) officially introduced H.R. 938 last night.

H.R. 938 would end the Chain Migration that has been primarily responsible for quadrupling average annual immigration from 250,000 a year to more than a million a year.

Chain Migration, in effect, allows each immigrant to eventually bring his/her whole village to the United States. Immigrants -- not the American people -- choose the next immigrants, with no consideration of their skills, education, needs or any other factor but nepotism.

Chain Migration is our No. 1 legal immigration problem.

And Chain Migration is the No. 3 cause of illegal immigration.

KEY PARTS OF H.R. 938

This bill would:

* finally return the "family reunification" aspect of immigration to its original intent of nuclear family

* almost totally focus family reunification on spouses and minor children -- the nuclear family; it would do away with family categories added only in the 1950s that allow immigrants to send for their adult brothers, adult sisters and adult children -- once you allow adult relatives of immigrants to have an ENTITLEMENT to live in the U.S., you create a chain that quickly reaches cousins, nephews, nieces, in-laws, etc.

* greatly increase the speed of bringing spouses and minor children into the country, primarily by relieving an overburdened immigration bureaucracy from dealing with millions of extended family members.
