We’ve got to face it — our Immigration system is broken and it needs an overhaul.
Like perhaps enforcing the laws on the books.
Ending chain migration.
Treating all applicants that want to move to the U.S. with the same standard despite the color of their skin.
And not letting activist, open border leftists dictate what the immigration policy should be.
The rules that we have now allow the ‘bad hombres’ (and whatever the Arabic equivalent would be) into this country:
President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul – as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle.
Trump said that the U.S. ‘must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people’ into the country.
The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place.
And he called on Congress to end ‘chain migration,’ in which family members are permitted to join relatives who have immigrated.
A Bangladeshi man identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah was taken into custody with serious injuries after a pipe bomb he was carrying malfunctioned and exploded prematurely inside a Midtown Manhattan subway station.
He had come from Bangladesh in 2011, apparently with his parents and three or four siblings – all of them sponsored by his aunt or uncle, his immigration status showed.
Ok, so the point was to not separate families, am I right?
Where does it end? This guy was the adult nephew of the original legal immigrant who came in via a Green Card Lottery. When he entered the country in 2011, he was 21 years old.
I’m thinking that wasn’t the intent of the law.
Ullah is a Bangladeshi national who has been living in the U.S. for the past seven years. Fox News reports that the former taxi driver came to the U.S. on a F-4 visa, a preferential visa for those who have family already in the U.S. The Post says he is a legal green-card holder.
His immigration designation is F-43, which means he claimed the right to a green card because he is the child of the brother or sister of a U.S. citizen.
The U.S. citizen can be newly naturalized. Trump’s statement suggests that Ullah claimed a green card by virtue of a citizen who was also an immigrant.
Records show that Ullah moved to the U.S. from Chittagong, Bangladesh in February 2011 on the F4 visa, and is now a legal green-card owner.
He reportedly immigrated with his parents and three to four siblings. Trump’s statement suggests that one of his parents’ siblings had gained citizenship then petitioned for multiple family members.

The President advocates for a merit-based system that would focus on immigrants that are high-skilled, well educated, have learned English, and are likely to assimilate and flourish in the United States.
That seems better than granting green cards to the extended relatives of newly-minted citizens, don’t you agree?

ISIS. This radical terrorist organization is a virus… a worldwide plague. These a$$holes are willing to kill their own women and children to annihilate who they call “infidels.”
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. F**K ISIS.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
