Melania Trump’s immigration attorney spoke up Friday to criticize the president’s “unconscionable” demonizing of “chain migration” to stoke fear of immigrants. Attorney Michael Wildes praised the “beautiful” U.S. program of family reunification that helped family members of both the first lady and Donald Trump settle in America.
Melania Trump, from Slovenia, sponsored her parents so they could obtain a green card before applying for U.S. citizenship. Wildes said she has “great comfort” now knowing that her parents can stay in the U.S.
“Calling this ‘chain migration’ is really outside of the ethos of what was intended,” Wildes said on MSNBC.
“This whole notion of chain migration is actually a beautiful bedrock of immigration law and policy called family reunification,” Wildes added. “Imagine this: People will work harder and love more and do more for America knowing that their loved ones, their immediate relatives, their parents, their children” are here …. “chain migration, no, [it’s] family reunification.”
News host Erin Burnett played clips of the president calling chain migration “horrible, horrible,” a “disaster,” a “killer” and “terrible.”
“You bring one person in, and you end up with 32 people,” the president said in one of the clips. “We have to end chain migration.”
So to be clear it appears that Melania Trump sent her attorney to appear on national TV to publicly disagree with her husband’s lies about the American immigration system.
And it was just last week that Melania’s spokesperson came out with a statement saying that the First Lady supported LeBron James after her husband attacked him on Twitter.
Anybody else get the feeling that Melania might just be one or two more incidents away from appearing on CNN herself to attack Trump’s policies?
