    Dude...her parents are the living definition of chain migration. From Wiki:

    Chain migration is a term used by scholars to refer to the social process by which migrants from a particular town follow others from that town to a particular destination. The destination may be in another country or in a new location within the same country. Chain migration can be defined as a “movement in which prospective migrants learn of opportunities, are provided with transportation, and have initial accommodation and employment arranged by means of primary social relationships with previous migrants.”[1] Or, more simply put: "The dynamic underlying 'chain migration' is so simple that it sounds like common sense: People are more likely to move to where people they know live, and each new immigrant makes people they know more likely to move there in turn."[2]




    In fact, Melania sponsored their green cards.

    https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/lady...ry?id=57121694

    Immigration experts told ABC News in February that the most likely way the Knavses could have become permanent residents is through their daughter’s citizenship.
    "The most obvious way that they would have become green card holders is by being the parents of a U.S. citizen – i.e. Melania Trump," said Stephen Yale-Loehr, an immigration professor at Cornell Law School.
    This is a process that Trump has consistently referred to as "chain migration." The legal status of the president's in-laws has come under scrutiny after the Trump administration’s proposed crackdown on the process.

    No one would care if it was just one DACA kid and their parents. But the ACLU, ADL ect want open borders. One kid they expect you to take 100 people. Then those 100 people get to bring in theirs. In other words open borders. That goes for DACA or anyone else they bring over here as fleeing for their lives.

    Sorry, no.

    It's rumored they're staying here at the White House now and are definitely using and travelling with the President on Air Force One and are present at social functions. While I have no problem with that (see Michelle Obama's mother); there's just waaaay too much obscurity and secrecy with this whole situation to think it's just Grandma and Grandpa come to Washington.

    Some people certainly give morons a bad name don't they.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    From the article.....

    "Trump and his congressional allies have fought to slash that dramatically, limiting sponsorship to spouses and minor children, including dropping the threshold for minor children from 21 to 18"
    One can be sure that he who says he knows knows nothing

    Shows what you know. The 65 Immigration and Nationality Act legislation ended the cap on family reunification of parents, spouse, and children allowing each of those to use the same process exponentially increasing migration. That is the chain in chain migration that is the issue.

    Nope.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
