Since 1986 amnesty, 20% of legal immigration was from Mexico & almost all of it was chain migration

Could chain migration cost Trump the election?


From 1986 to 2018, the U.S. has taken in 32.6 million immigrants. 6.4 million or about 20 percent were from Mexico alone, according to the annual Yearbook of Immigration Statistics published by the Department of Homeland Security. Put another way, a country that comprises less than 2 percent of the world’s population made up one-fifth of all U.S. immigration. Nearly all of that was the 1986 amnesty and then the family-based preferences for those who received the amnesty. 87.6 percent of Mexican immigrants are family preferences for either U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. Another 1.1 million Mexicans are current on the family preferences waiting lists in 2019, or 33.6 percent of the 3.2 million total worldwide. Soon, they will become lawful permanent residents, and afterward, citizens — all legally. And in 2016, according to exit polls, Latinos voted by a margin of 2 to 1 for Hillary Clinton. The question Republican lawmakers need to ask themselves is simple. How many more elections does the GOP expect to win without the popular vote?
