Absolutely not. My family was fortunate enough to get here before 1914. My grandfather was the youngest of five children who joined his older siblings who had emigrated before him. He arrived here at the age of 14. He went on to prosper, have a thriving business, send his two children to college. His son (my uncle) founded a company that went public on the NYSE. My grandfather’s nephew was one of the founders of the American school of pop art with works exhibited in every major US museum. My grandmother came her at 4 when her mother and siblings joined her aunts and uncles after their father had died. If not for joining their siblings they would have perished in World War II. They also would have been excluded from immigrating after the 1924 immigration act which limited immigrants from Eastern and Southern Europe. Families should be able to sponsor any family
member for immigration. These are the networks that help support immigrants.
Our country is not full. Many jobs go unfilled. Our country is stronger when the most motivated of people leave their country of origin behind to make a better life for their families. I don’t know why Mr. Trump forgets that his own mother came here to join his aunt for a better life in America, and that two of his wives were immigrants. His own in laws were products of what he likes to call chain migration. Lastly, need we forget that Ivanka, Donald Jr, Eric and Barron are anchor babies, born to women who were not citizens. Just because some people are afraid that people with white skin may not be the majority, it is no reason to limit family sponsorship for immigration.
