Donald Trump Wants to End "Chain Migration"

Donald Trump wants to end "chain migration".

This strikes me as hypocritical. How did Melania's parents get here if not by relying on her immigration status?

Donald Trump's grandfather emigrated to the U.S. and then wanted to return to Bavaria. He was ordered deported and wrote a pleading letter to the Prince Regent on how devastating it would be to the family to deport him. [More...]

German authorities had given him eight weeks to leave and denied him repatriation because he failed to complete his mandatory military service and to register his initial emigration to the US 20 years earlier.

...In the letter, Mr Trump described the moment he received the news from the High Royal State Ministry he had to leave as "a lightning strike from fair skies".

From the letter:

But we were confronted all at once, as if by a lightning strike from fair skies, with the news that the High Royal State Ministry had decided that we must leave our residence in the Kingdom of Bavaria. We were paralyzed with fright; our happy family life was tarnished. My wife has been overcome by anxiety, and my lovely child has become sick.

Why should we be deported? This is very, very hard for a family. What will our fellow citizens think if honest subjects are faced with such a decree — not to mention the great material losses it would incur.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Trump.
