“Chain immigration” is like “anchor baby”–just racist rubbish against immigrants. Dumb-as-a-stump Trump has made it & the barrier wall blackmail to retain DACA. How does not allowing families to reunite correspond to the rightwing’s ‘family values’ crap? There is also the caveat that DACA is a temporizing policy. In exchange for handing the government your name, address, & job site, DACA gives young people temporary work & education rights with no commitment it will lead to citizenship. That way when the government tries to end DACA (as they are threatening to do now), immigration officers know just where to pick you up.

We should defend DACA but we should fight for an immigration policy based on the Statue of Liberty, not on Trump’s racism & stupidities.
