Feds: Every legal Mexican immigrant sponsors six more to US

While President Trump has his eyes on curbing illegal immigration, federal rules are allowing legal immigrants to "sponsor" several more family members from their countries, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

On average, legal immigrants have been sponsoring three additional immigrants. And newly arrived Mexicans are sponsoring an additional six family members.

The statistics analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies find that sponsorships exceed initial immigration numbers.

Called "chain migration" because the first immigrant acts as a link to many others legally allowed to follow, the practice is having a huge impact on the U.S. Sponsors are "native-born citizens or naturalized citizens."

I don't think there's a problem with this at all. People who want to come here and assimilate, throw off their old flag in adoption of ours and pledge allegiance to it are welcome as my brothers and sisters. If their family members wish the same for themselves and repatriate themselves, more power to them.

Just deport the illegal ones and their illegal family members, as they have all committed a crime here and need to leave.

That should bring the quotas back down to where they should be.

Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory. They already have citizenship. Guess you missed that Civics class.

This is what's called "Death by a thousand cuts" We are slowly killing America with our own P.C. policies. Congress needs to put an end to this before we become North Mexico.

943 - therein the problem molds. Assimilation or the lack thereof. They come, but don't assimilate, won't speak English, won't love the USA flag and send ALL their extra money back "home" via Western Union. Try to enforce the law and pansies come out of the wood work and cry foul.
