Rep. Carter Supports Bill to End Chain Migration

Rep. John Carter (R-Tex.) is the eighteenth Member of Congress to co-sponsor of H.R. 938, The Nuclear Family Priority Act. The bill would eliminate the policy that has been most responsible for immigration quadrupling from around 250,000 a year in the 1950s and 1960s to more than one million a year since 1990. Under chain migration, distant relatives well outside an immigrant’s basic family unit take priority over husbands, wives, parents and minor children.
