AOC Ending Chain Migration Is Closing Borders

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told attendees to a Town Hall meeting on April 27 that ending chain migration or the immigration lottery program would be akin to closing the United States’ borders.

“The administration is trying to lower the amount of family reunification visas, lower the amount of diversity visa lotteries, literally creating the paper version of closing our borders,” said Ocasio-Cortez, apparently misunderstanding the definition of the word “literally.”

President Donald J. Trump and his administration have repeatedly favored merit based immigration systems, where skilled labor could be brought into the United States, over “family reunification visas” which allow for chain migration, where one immigrant comes and then is followed by a potentially unskilled family, and “visa lotteries,” which allow individuals with nothing to offer to the United States to enter simply because their name was essentially drawn out of a hat.

The president described the current immigration system as “very unfair to all those people who have gone through the system legally,” and said that “Immigration must be based on merit,” telling his Twitter followers that “we need people who will help to Make America Great Again!”

Ocasio-Cortez went on, hands flailing wildly, telling the audience that “And know that that’s not just about preventing people from coming in, it’s about preventing us from reaching out, and really taking advantage of all the opportunities of an evolving society.”

She also claimed that refusing to allow chain migration and lottery based immigration will threaten the United States’ position as a “global leader.”

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato

America must bolster its border security.

The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.

Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior. 

According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang. 

“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.

Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.

With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue. 

As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
