The Commission supports effective Americanization of new immigrants, that is the cultivation of a shared commitment to the American values of liberty, democracy, and equal opportunity. The United States is one of the most successful multiethnic nations in history. It has united immigrants and their descendants from all over the world around a commitment to democratic ideals and constitutional principles. Those ideals and principles have been embraced by persons from an extraordinary variety of religious and ethnic backgrounds, partly because they permit and protect religious and cultural diversity within a framework of national political unity.
At the same time, immigration to the United States should be understood as a privilege, not a right. Immigration carries with it obligations to embrace the common core of the American civic culture, to become able to communicateto the extent possiblein English with other citizens and residents, and to adapt to fundamental core values, constitutional principles, and democratic institutions.
US Bi-partisan report on immigration reform 1995
Sh*t normally runs downhill but the BBC, as is their want, try hard to push it uphill so that they can then pile it from on high upon Trump…such is the case with the ‘sh*thole’ legend created by a Democrat who is probably a liar on a grand scale.
The BBC isn’t really trying too hard to find the truth or any context….here it tells us…
Mr Trump has denied using the language reported.
He has been backed by two Republicans who were at the White House meeting, but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said Mr Trump called African countries “shitholes” several times and used “racist” language.
So two Republicans at the meeting back Trump…..who are they and does the BBC go any further in reporting what they say? No of course not. Instead the ‘report’ continues to paint a picture of a racist president based upon the unproven words of one man…one man who is highly motivated to make that picture stick.
Democrat Dick Durbin is also a hypocrit….he calls Trump a racist for using the ‘hurtful’ term ‘Chain migration’ and yet he himself used it not days ago…
We can agree on some very fundamental and important things together on border security, on chain, on the future of diversity visas.
If he’s being dishonest about that what else is he being dishonest about?
Well maybe the fact that it is not Trump who invented the phrase ‘chain migration’ for one thing…something the Left are trying to pin on him…as a supposed racist term.
The commission’s second report, Legal Immigration: Setting Priorities, addressed legal immigration, including family and employment-based immigration, refugee admissions, and naturalization. It concluded that the current immigration system’s core element of chain migration was not in accord with national interests and urged the adoption of a new system scaling back significantly on overall immigration levels.
And in 2010 in an article reporting on a report from a bipartisan committee produced in 1995 and signed off by President Clinton that said ‘family migration’, otherwise known as ‘chain migration’, should be scaled back…
A scale back of family chain-migration by implementing a prioritization of nuclear family relationships to determine who will be admitted through family-based immigration. Spouses and minor children of US citizens would continue to be admitted as first priority.
Also used not just in the US context…from 2009:
Remittances and Chain Migration: Longitudinal Evidence from Bosnia and Herzegovina
The BBC are happy to go with the lefty anti-Trump flow and keeps on flinging the muck in the hope that it sticks regardless of facts and context.
