LISTEN, READ, REASON, UNDERSTAND :: The fruit of chain migration

The fruit of chain migration

Mark Krikorian in National Review
Mark Krikorian writes in National Review that yesterday’s New York City bombing underscores the urgency of adopting a merit-based immigration system—not one based on a random visa lottery.

Krikorian reports that Bangladeshi jihadist Akayed Ullah came to America “on what amounts to a nephew visa.” What’s more, the family member he followed only received entry by virtue of winning the U.S. visa lottery. Krikorian quotes Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), who on the floor of the Senate last week asked, “Shouldn’t we have an immigration system that focuses on the needs of America’s workers and economy, not one that gives out green cards by random chance?” The answer is a resounding yes.
Blair Guild in CBS News reports on President Donald J. Trump signing the National Defense Authorization Act this afternoon, thereby approving $700 billion in funding for the U.S. military. "This legislation represents a momentous step toward rebuilding our military and securing the future for our children,” President Trump said.
The editorial board of the Richmond Times-Dispatch agrees that Republican tax reform will be good news for the middle class. “Once the reforms kick in next year . . . the myths about Republican tax reform will be demolished by reality,” as workers see paychecks expand and businesses boost hiring.
Wesley Pruden at The Washington Times says it’s been a “sad and extremely horrible week” for the media. Everyone makes mistakes, Pruden writes, but “sometimes the mistakes are not really mistakes, but failed attempts to get away with fudging the facts to make a point.” And the public notices when those mistakes always seem to drift to the left.
According to The Wall Street Journal’s James Freeman, “We’re certainly living in strange times when the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee is among the most media-friendly lawmakers in Washington.” Freeman suggests that times would be a little less strange if the major networks hesitated in airing these “fact-free allegations” against Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) political adversaries.
Lee Roop writes in AL.com that President Trump has made it official: “NASA will lead an effort to land humans on the moon” once again. The return to human spaceflight as a top priority is welcome news for the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
